How to Grocery Shop for Five on $100 a Week
“People are sometimes shocked to hear that I spend only $100 a week on groceries for a family of five. I’ve even been accused of not telling the whole truth. Confession: Five mouths for $100 is not the whole equation. We also feed a nutritious diet to our two cats.” Wise Bread
