Tighting the Belt!

Well in the hopes to stay on a budget I created a menu for 2 weeks I only spent $152.50 on groceries. That included food and toiletries & diapers so I think I did really well. This should last us 2 week feeding 6 people. On a side note: I didn't have to buy any eggs since our chicken have started to lay eggs. Right now we are getting 4 eggs and that should increase to almost a dozen a day when they start laying. If anyone needs recipes I can post them also.
