Welcome to the team, Molly. Definitely lots of ways to save money on food and still stay healthy. As Cvronek mentioned reading back on the forums is very helpful. Great ideas from batch cooking, crockpot cooking etc.
To give freely without expectation is a true gift.

My name is Molly. I have been a member of sparkpeople for a year but have just discovered this website. I just got married last year and we are trying to work on a budget. My husband finally found a full time job that pays decently, and I an about to start a graduate program in education. I will not be able to work very much due to my demanding schedule, so money will be kind of tight. Thankfully my parents have offered to help us a little with income while I am finishing school. Meanwhile, we are trying to eat healthy foods while keeping within our grocery budget. It sucks that the cheap food is also the worst for you.
