'Siyo, Sharon! Where are you in Florida? I'm in Sanford, FL. If you're in the Central Florida area, I can point out some places for buying good food cheap!

Until we meet again - Peace.

Welcome! It's hard sticking to a budget.You'll find that in season fresh veggies and fruits are the cheapest, and when they are not available, frozen is GREAT alternative.You'll find what you like and don't and cut back some there.Buy sales as much as possible,Compare unit prices, use coupons .Shop buy get one, or two free, sales on say meat (or other) items you use A Lot , freeze, ziploc freezer bags, in the amount you'd use for one meal.Utilize leftovers in creative ways, use up what's in your pantry, This will save you time And money.Glad to meet you, and look forward to getting to know you better! Good luck on finding a solution to you and your hubby's budget problems.

Hi y'all. I'm a miss placed Texan living in Florida. So happy to find this team (and the addition to SparkPeople site) since hubby and I sat down last Saturday to develop a budget TOGETHER! For the first time. He's always put it on me and just told me, "Just tell me what to do." Needless to say we never stuck to those budgets and it always bothered me because we are such a team in every other area of our lives.

Problem was we created a grocery budget then promptly went over it buying only the items for the healthy menu I created on SparkPeople. We're just starting and it's not a devastating loss but there's lots of room for improvement.

So, hi, I'm Sharon (aka TexGrl) usually a bit shy unless it's something I'm passionate about and I'm happy the meet all of ya!
