    The idea of feeding my family for $50 a week is probably a little unrealistic for me. We are a family of four, but my husband tends to eat a little extra at most meals and my son *who is only 4* seems to be a bottomless pit as well. It is a little difficult for me because neither of them are overweight, so I can’t even give them a little guilt for running up the grocery budget. I love the recipes you share, but in our house they have to be doubled or someone would go hungry. LOL!

    Right now it would be pretty hard to feed my family on $50.00 a week. My daughter who moved back home with 2 of my grandkids is on a diet and is buying special foods and the grandkids need lunches packed for school and daycare. My husband who recently started kidney dialysis is on a really strict diet and can only eat power foods. We are learning what those include and he will be eating different foods than the rest of us. I like to eat and if I want anything tasty we have to spend extra money again. Sad to say $50.00 just isn’t possible right now.

    Honestly, I don’t think I could feed my family for $50 a week simply because we are a family of 6, BUT, I would be willing to give it a try and come as close as I could get to $50/week. (does this include breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks, too? Or just dinners?) I’ll check out the challenge!

    Like you, I have a husband with expensive taste on some things – not everything, but he’s picky about things like cheese and yogurt and meat. Plus we try to do organic wherever possible – especially for meats and dairy products. I’d love to keep it under $50, but it would be tough. That’s why I’m stalking you, to learn the trick!!

    It would be hard, but I think I could feed my family for $50 a week. Most of our money goes to things that are easy to make, so I’d just have to home cook more.

    I don’t think I could feed our family of 6 humans, 2 huge dogs and 2 cats on $50 a week but I could get a really good start! I try to get all the cleaning, personal hygiene and paper products free but produce is pricey.
    Add that to Iams dog food for the puppy and I just couldn’t make it.

    I could totally do $50 a week! I love my Meijer and “my” cashier, Dona. She rocks and is so good about my coupons, she even compliments on my skills and says I inspire her to keep clipping coupons! And my store pushes out the reduced produce cart daily around 10:30 am, tons of produce for the cheap!

    I can’t feed my family of two on $50.00 a week but I am having fun trying. My admiration to people who can. I can’t wait to send this to all my family and friends.
