Menu Plan Monday: Frugal Lady Feeds 4 $55

Frugal Lady Presents: Feeding for $55
Many people think that feeding your family for $55 per week is impossible.  To those people I say, "Tisk, tisk, tisk.  Oh ye of little faith!"  I have been feeding our family of four over the last two years for $50 and under each and every week.  We do not starve!  We do not eat beans every night!  Our menu always includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks each day.  Get ready doubters . . . Exhibit A:  The Menu Plan - Then, Exhibit B: The receipts  - Then you will be a believer too and go forth knowing that you too, can do!
