It is tough to shop for seven children on a budget, but we do manage to do so. I have found that menu's, lists, and calculators are mandatory for not over spending. I also avoid getting extra just because we have extra to spend. better not to spend the money and add it to savings instead. Another good tip that works for us is to never shop for food if you are hungry. Eat first, then shopon a full stomach. Also, don't reach for those promos or impulse items, leave them on the shelf and stick to your list. Anyone else have some smart ideas for shopping on a budget?
