  1. Can I ask what is your weekly grocery budget amount? We are a family of 6.

    1. I shop mostly once a month and then go back to the store to fill in milk and produce. Also, I do 85% of my shopping at Aldi. That being said, I spend about $450/month. We are also a family of 6.

  2. Do you have a meal plan that you do for your entire family? Does your whole family do THM or just you. I want to find a way to meal plan for my entire family. One to get our grocery spending under control and to better my families eating habits. Does your meal plans include what you need to feed all 6 of you?
