add up a months receipts & break down groups to see where you are spending  what percentage of grocery budget & revamp it:

Is it breakfast convenience foods etc?swith to 8 cents a serving muffins for weekdays and 25 cents a serving pancakes,

Is it meat for dinner?try ten dollar dinners on food network, or make ur own pizza crust from yeast for about 4 dollar pizza the way u like it

Soap & paper products?vinegar or bleach can be diluted, rags are reusable

search & find money you would swear u don't have by looking at new ways to not spend what you think you need

hulu is a godsend for my cable bill

challenge yourself & get out of the hole, Spring is coming!!

If I could give up diet coke and coffee, my food bill would decrease by a lot. :(

Thanks for the thought-provoking post. I'll definitely start looking a little closer at where my grocery $ is going.
