We typically go to the Farmer's market every 2 weeks so our bill is aorund $220 per month. We are looking into a variety of other resources to help cut down on costs like cowpooling and I am putting the finishing touches on our garden which will cut down some of our costs as well. The meat is what is expensive so it may require a little more creativity to find more affordable sources.
I average between 1400-1700 calroies. Like Diana said you can do so on a budget but you must get creativity and make good connections. I am the only one working currently and we have a 6 month old so saving money is paramount.
Today is a new day. You will get out of it just what you put into it. If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. And supposing you have tried and failed again and again, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'Failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.
