Tips for Saving Money on Groceries and for Eating Healthfully

Happy Monday!

Hubby and I have been trying to get back on track with our money-spending habits- we were doing really really well for a while and then we got our tax return and -bam! all of a sudden kinda went on a crazy spending spree. We bought things that we needed, (mostly…)  but didn't stick to a budget at all really, and now most of that money is gone. We did manage to save a little bit, which is better than we did last year, but since we're getting ready to move across the country we really want to buckle down and be wise with the money God has given us and use it to its full ability instead of just throwing it away on "stuff."
We also have a savings account to help with the cost of moving or for an emergency (hopefully we won't need it for that!)  and want to put as much as possible in there while still being able to break even.

Anyhoo, I thought I'd share a few tips that we use to help us save money on groceries, since that's where a lot of families spend a large chunk of their income, and its an easy place to shave off expenses from!
