Now, our family is seeking to build our immune systems after a year filled with illnesses, and I am watching our grocery budget inch ever higher. The truth is, eating a nutritious balance of foods is more expensive than eating convenience meals and junk that I could get for pennies on the dollar by stacking coupons with store sales, but there are some things I can do to make our healthy eating habits more affordable. I know that beans have a bad reputation of melodious after-effects but they are packed with protein and when you buy them dry and in bulk, the savings are huge.
If you do not have time for scratch cooking, then try making some simple homemade mixes and create shortcuts in your routine. If these ideas still having you watching your bank balance, keep in mind that small changes can still make a big difference.
Also, if your first trip to the store ends up costing you more than it normally would, take a look at what you bought.

Our family has even lived through a season where there was no room for groceries in the budget, and we just had to trust God would provide what we needed.

If you have a meat and potatoes man who refuses the idea, then do one of two things: 1) Change your entree. The great thing about making your food from scratch is that you know exactly what is going into your food while you are still saving money.
You are still saving money (especially when you buy these basic ingredients in bulk) and you are saving time too.

If you have no idea what to do with beans, the Ultimate Beans and Rice Recipe List is always an inspiration to me. And, don’t forget that when you use Swagbucks for your searches, you can even earn gift cards to Amazon, making those groceries free! The package says to add three cans of water but I add four and my family has never been able to tell the difference. If what you need is not available at a reasonable price, pick it up in the frozen foods section.
