I spent about $500 this week, wait I really did save. I did bulk once a month cooking. I think I have enough meals to last until Christmas break. All sorts of meals, marinated chicken for the grill, beef roasts, pork roasts, pulled pork, beef enchiladas, baked ziti, chicken noodle soup....my list goes on and on.
We were eating out way too much, we needed convenience and now I have it in my freezer. Family of four, two teenagers and often their friends.
In the long run I just saved a fortune. Took two whole days, one day to shop another 12 hour day to cook, put my slow cookers all to work and filled my freezer.
I'll just need to purchase what we need fresh, milk, produce.
