I have no doubt that you are right! Everyone says that "healthy food" is more expensive, but only if you are buying the "healthier" pre-processed foods. I think fresh vegetables, can be less. I am just starting this process for my family. I live with my mom and my sister, as well as her 8YO daughter and 5yo son. I lost my job back in September and decided to go back to school, so I am taking over the cooking, shopping. I am now in the process of tracking receipts to see if there is anyway to reduce our family shopping. Good luck, and congrats!
This is about more than a number... It is about my LIFE!
