Search for those discount grocery stores and stick to the sales at the farmer’s markets.

Each item that we purchased was either on sale or discounted due to expired sale by dates.

Let me be clear…we are not buying spoiled foods…

The perishables we purchase  vary in expiration, but we bought only those that expire within the week that we know will get eaten by that time period.

Packaged snacks and cereals still taste good even if they’re are posted as expired and okay to eat, but make sure to read your local discount grocery’s policies on expiration dates before making any purchases.

Believe me we still run into a few things that do not hold up past their due date..

Like…peanut butter…

Be dedicated to a set amount at each store.

Be dedicated to what you need, look at what you want after you get the necessities.

Luke 14:28-30

New International Version (NIV)

28 “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? 29 For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you,30 saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’

Thank you for your time!

God Bless!
