Groceries for a Family of 5 with a $100 per Week Budget

When I first started buying groceries for a family of 5 I was dropping $500 in the first-week grocery shopping. Not a good idea when you’re a stay at home mom and your husband only gets paid once a month. No sir, no it’s not. Looking back I can tell a few major things that got in my way:

  1. Got swept away with “super foods”
  2. Shopped too much in bulk
  3. Bought whatever I wanted
  4. Overly concerned with the healthiest options

Now it’s crazy to me after living on a budget how we are spending only $100 on groceries for a family of 5. I swear it’s possible to not only feed everyone, but eat healthy too! Here’s how we made it happen.
