Eating Cheap = Eating Junk??
Many people that ask me about "couponing" wonder if they will have to sacrifice healthy eating for spending less on food.
We feed 6 people (4 adults) on less than $250 per month. We eat much organic food, lots of fruits and veggies, and whole grains. Although we do get some "junk" food free, we use it when we need to bring treats to picnics, work, family gatherings, etc. It also makes for an occasional treat for our family.
Looking for a good place to start?
I recently read a great article on the 20 Healthiest Foods for under $1.00. (Thanks, Marcus!) It talks about 20 Healthy and Cheap Foods, why they are good for you and practical ways to incorporate them into your kitchen.
