Are you finding this as interesting as I am, or am I just a little on the geeky side as I break down the cost of our meals and discover that we really are eating well for quite a low cost!
If nothing else, perhaps you’re getting some good meal ideas. :) I just love that even with the big rise in grocery costs, we are all still able to eat for very little money overall. We can all be so encouraged!
Sam’s Smoked Sausage Meal: $1.48/person
I’d picked up a nice package of beef smoked sausage on a recent Sam’s trip. Cost for a 4-pack of beef smoked sausage was: $11.28. I like having items like this in my freezer because they offer a very quick meal I know my family will like!
One day when I was planning a meal around the leftover mashed potatoes and green beans in my fridge, I spotted the sausages and knew they’d be perfect! We had guests eating with us that night, so we fed six adults, three kids (who’d been swimming and were hungry!!), and three toddlers.
Total cost for this meal with smoked sausage, mashed potatoes, green beans, and watermelon was $17.78. Divided by 12 people, this cost just $1.48 per person!
Let’s keep looking for ways to cut back and save as we buy groceries. But let’s also recognize that eating high-quality, well-balanced meals is very doable on a budget!
