Turn them over, add up the total of the ingredients, and you have a shopping list (just cross off any ingredients you have already)!Stick the cards on the fridge or bulletin board and put them away in your recipe box as you use them.This system can help you stick to a list, and helps ensure that you always have foods prepared or ready to prepare, which limits impulsive purchasing and eating! When our budget is tightest, I prepare a large, inexpensive cut of meat and reuse it different ways throughout the week.
We have a 25 x 40 foot garden for vegetables, and also have fruit trees, grape vines and blueberry bushes in the works this year.We are able to grow enough vegetables for summer and preserving throughout the year for our family of 5 in this space.
