YES! We are Very tight on money currently and find it very hard to buy healthy foods. Boxed mac-n-cheese (which DH and Kynslee both love) with hot dogs is tons cheaper for us to budget than any actual meats and such. But, I'm trying my hardest to eat healthy on a budget. We only have $80 max a month for food so it's very hard. I don't like letting others know this but we sometimes will go to the food bank to try and get food to help provide meals. I only shop the sales and then add coupons to it. And, with meats I mainly try and buy the clearance meats (the ones that are about to expire) and then plan my meals around those. They still taste just as good and you can still freeze them for a bit. Healthy casseroles are a great way for us to go as they usually last longer for us and I can stretch meat out with them.
