5 Frugal Family Meals to Make with One Turkey

In my post How Our Family of 5 Eats Healthy for $100 a Week I touched a little on how we cut back on our meat consumption not only to benefit the environment and our health but to also cut back on our grocery bill.

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:

  2. Shopped too much in bulk
