Since we do a lot of our grocery shopping at a discount store, what is available to buy just depends on what they have that week. Most times I go in with a general idea of what I want and a list of basics - flour, sugar, coffee, etc. Then after choosing from what is available there I come home and make my menu from that. It has saved us so much money in groceries and we haven't had any major problem with the food. Sometimes the fresh fruits and vegetables have to be picked over carefully but that's the only thing I really have to watch for.

* Each week Austin, Amanda and CJ are each responsible for planning, shopping for and preparing for two meals.
