I love this, and I love you. c:
-Whole wheat pasta ($1/box+sensible portion. Pair this with something else. Pasta is the side, not the meal.)
-in season sale fruit.a lot of it. Bananas are always cheap ($0.19) clementines are cheap in the winter, and grapes are cheap in the summer etc.
-yoplait 100 calorie greek yogurt are 2 points plus and always on sale (= or <$1)
-this+banana=breakfast for $1.19 or less. - store brand quakes ($1.99 +2pp)
-store brand pretzels ($0.99 and 1 bag lasts 2+ weeks)
-frozen veggies are often cheaper than fresh. And with 3 very different schedules, we found fresh was getting thrown away/going bad/not being used when we thought we’d use it etc. -manager special meats. The stuff that’s going bad in a day or two is always drastically cheaper.
-quinoa from trader joes ($3.50) 1 bag lasts a month or more
This list is 80% of our intake.
Anonymous asked: Okay thanks! I'm signing up for WW tomorrow. I hope it works for me. I'm a broke college student and right now I'm only making $500 a month so but I need to save at least $200.. so do you think I'll have enough money to buy Weight Watcher food? Lol
Don’t buy the pre-packaged foods. The frozen dinners are very high in salt and not a good value, and the food at the meetings is super overpriced- it’s like $7.50 for 6 super tiny mini bars etc. buy lots of fruits and vegetables, keep an eye out for what’s in season (clementines are usually on sale in the winter, and grapes are cheaper in the summer- stuff like that) because that almost always means it’s cheaper or on sale.
My living situation is a household of 3 people who all eat healthy and we spend $280 a month on food- that’s for all 3 of us.

I thought that your last anon was extremely rude, and I just wanted to let you know that I totally understand how truly frustrating it is.
Aw, this made me happy
