I joined this team because we don't have a lot of money to spend of groceries. I love to cook at home, but a lot the recipes I find online cost so much to make. I need some cheap recipes, but I also need variety. Right now we have quite a few meals on repeat, and it's getting old.

I need to save money where ever possible. And I believe cooking at home is cheaper and healthier! I love new recipes. I am cooking for one now since my husband passed away last September.

emoticon I am living overseas on a very, very tight budget. Fortunately, staples such as beans and whole grains are fairly cheap here. Most vegetables are cheaper than they would be in my home country. By following a whole foods, plant based diet, I can eat in a healthy way and do so fairly cheaply. I love to cook, but sometimes get in a rut and don't feel creative. I hope on this team we can encourage each other!

I hope you will find that here. I just took over the group recently and saw that there had not been much activity in a long time. That might be why the former owner left it. I'm trying to liven it up but of course it takes group participation. If you have any ideas or contributions, just peruse the boards and jump right in! I've got to figure out my settings for the group because I haven't received any notifications of the latest posts.

Extremely low income & I don't feel it's addressed very often; although we do strive to eat very well within these constraints (money & store prices) ... feeling great within this current life path; why, because family is most important.

My husband is the only one working right now, so we don't have much money to feed ourselves and our 3 year old, and every other weekend my 5 year old. I have to do what I can to make things as cheap as possible.

I've been diagnosed with diabetes six months ago. Between medical bills and glucose meter test strips i've got a huge hole in my wallet. Plus food isn't exactly cheap in Japan, or at least fruit isn't.

Hi, for ideas read the posts. I started this group because I've been on a tight budget ever since I was a single mom 33 years ago. I still do little quirky things to save money, lol.

I joined this team because I am now on a very limited disability and don't have money to buy a lot of groceries. I was hoping to find ways to eat well on a "shoestring"
