I went grocery shopping last night because the weather said we suppose to have freezing rain, rain and snow until Tuesday. Last night we only got probably 1/4 if an inch and now it's not doing anything. Figures!
I will post my shopping trip on Tuesday like normal but I am realizing that I need to really get a grasp on this whole budget thing. I don't think we are going to be able to afford the diet that I want for my family. So we are going to have to improvise. I would love to be able to feed my family all organic and natural foods. It seems like since we have started this journey we have more energy and feel better. That's great in all but when I am paying about 250-300 a month for Tinleigh's formula something has to give.
I really got to thinking about this yesterday when Brian calls me yelling (not a me) because his work has pushed him to the brink once again. I finally told him that I would rather have a happy and healthy husband than one that is on the verge of having a heart attack. If that means he has to quite his job and get a lower paying one, I will stand by his decision. Whatever happens we will get through.
So back to groceries, we can get enough food to feed us for a week on a 50-55 budget. This includes regular fruits and veggies not organic. As long as we are eating a well balance diet this is gonna have to be good enough for now. Also I am going to try and make baby food for Tinleigh. Here she is starting 3rd foods and she can barley eat anything of them. So many of them have rice, rice or wheat flour, or oatmeal. I mean come on, really!!!!
So, as I sit here and wait for the storm we are suppose to get I will be researching how to make baby food and some new recipes for me family. If you make your own baby food and you have any tips or tricks I'm begging, please let me know. :)
