    You did great! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Theresa says:

    How big are Gretchen’s and Bridgette’s families? And what are the age ranges? (Toddlers, teen boys, a mix of both?) Knowing the size of their families would help me apply some of their shopping and meal planning strategies to my own family.

  • Heather says:

    I agree with Theresa. I have four kids…. Three teens and the fourth is almost there. We go through a lot of food!!! (3boys) our milk consumption is MUCH more than a gallon per week.

    I enjoy these posts and hope to ger more info on family size/age. I like seeing other menu plans …. Gives me ideas!

    What a gift to have double coupons!!! That would be so nice!
