Oct 17/17- What Can I Buy With $25 Today?

This week's $25 Meal Plan came in below $20 and features some great prices from various stores. You do not need to drive to all these stores if you live near a grocer that price matches. You may find pricing close to the list even if shopping at one store. I tend to shop where I can get the majority of my items on sale and spend a little extra on the rest so I do not have to drive all over town (saves on both time and gas).

These meal plans are simply suggestions for anyone trying to really cut costs, while keeping meals as "real food" and as unprocessed as possible. These are not my personal weekly meal plans, I will be sharing these in a separate post from now on. 

Please comment, offer suggestions, ask questions and share recipes. This feature is to help people see it IS possible to eat well on a tight budget. (more…)

Special Offer From Sculpt Health and Wellness Riverview!

As many of you know, I had a rough summer emotionally. My mom suffered a stroke in June and I moved my kids to Quispamsis to take care of her. Now that she is doing much better, and we are back in Moncton, I have time to take care of me.

My good friend Michelle, from Sculpt Health and Wellness Riverview, has been my rock and supported me over the past 6 months. She is the reason I am able to continue being successful on my healthy lifestyle journey. At the moment I do have weight to lose, but it is not about the scale or even the clothing sizes (which have been going down!). It is about getting healthy and feeling good. (more…)

Sept 18/17-What can I buy for $25 today?

This weekly feature will have at least one meal plan for 4 to 5 supper meals that will feed a family of 4. Some weeks I will show 2 meal plans, but I may not be able to do that every week based on flyer sales.  (more…)
