Reader Question – How to Feed 3 People on $62.50 a Week?

Here’s a question from Lynn:

I’m trying to feed 2.5 people on $25 per week in groceries, per person – that’s $62.50/week. The group contains a 16-yo girl, a 35 yo man (he’s the .5- he’s gone 50% of the time) and me, a 33-yo woman. I live in Sudbury, ON. We also have 2 other children (11 & 8) to feed about 6 days per month. Any thoughts/comments?

Can you help her out?

Reader Question – Frugal Ideas to Feed Teenagers?

Christine has a question for you all:

We have been trying very hard to adapt to the frugal living. Do the no shop challenge or pantry challenge. But having a hard time finding ways to feed the bottomless pit of a teenager on a shoestring budget. Thanks so much for any help!

Any advice or suggestions for Christine?

Freezer Cooking Idea – Smoothie Packs

I guess this isn’t technically a freezer cooking idea, but just a general feed the freezer idea!

Budget Bytes has a genius idea to make whipping up a smoothie a piece of cake!  Make smoothie packs by dividing up bags of frozen fruit you buy from the store (or that you froze yourself with Spring and Summer bounty last year).

I can tell this idea might save the day a few times after our baby is born if we can’t stand the thought of preparing even the simplest meals/snacks.

Thanks for the link, Mom :)
