Groceries

How much do you spend on groceries? We currently spend $800 a month for our groceries and we are learning to reduce it drastically. Budget and coupons and just plain ole' smart shopping! I am going to look for sales everywhere and see where that takes and possibly see how much we save.

Why are you frugal?

Many people wonder why some people are frugal. But there are different reasons such as to pay pff debt or loans. Mainly because we have a huge family in our household and havet o make do with what we have. We are really trying to save and DH wants me to sell my things which I will not part with, lol. So instead we are on a tight budget and see how far we can stretch our dollar.
