    Good job! I need to find a way to do this but with organic and whole foods.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      I buy some organic – but yes, it is SO much more expensive! My dream is to have a huge garden and do it all myself…but we are going to have to move to a different house for that to happen. 😉

  • Kelly says:

    Where are you shopping for groceries where they are so inexpensive?

  • Brigette Shevy says:

    I shop at Aldi – which is a discount grocery chain all across the US. I also shop at Harris Teeter using coupons, but didn’t this particular week. Lidl is also a chain grocery store with awesome prices!
