Although I spend a lot of money on food, all in all, I am feeling pretty good about my food budget now. There are, admittedly, places where I could make cuts if I had to. I could shop at one of those heinous big box stores where everything is cheaper. I could make my babies eat canned fruit. They love fresh fruit, but they will eat canned if fresh isn’t available. And I could wait for sales to stock up on said canned fruit. But at this moment in time, I am able to buy fresh fruits and vegetables for my family, and that is what I will continue to do. And I am going to stop feeling bad about the amount of money I give to the grocer each week, knowing that I am on the low end of the scale when it comes to food spending.
