I see a lot of budgets that have higher then average grocery expenses. I also see some grocery budgets are very slim and can’t cover everyone in the household. You should never have to cut your grocery expenses if you are budgeting correctly. Here is a resource that may help.
Angel Food Ministries
Angel Food Ministries is an excellent resource for helping with your grocery expenses without using coupons, sales,etc. Angel Food Ministries is available in all states except for AK, HI, ID.

Once your order has been placed they will contact you to come in and pick-up your order. You can buy groceries for a family of 4 for less then $100. I use this resource myself. Quality Food, in bulk, similar to Costco, Sams Club, or BJ’s without the membership. This is available once per month and the Menu changes on a monthly basis. The Menu consist of a variety of different foods varying from seafood, different meat products, nonperishable items, etc. Angel Food Ministries participates in the Food Stamp Program to help with low-income families grocery cost as well.
Anything can help when it comes to your budget – I know that from speaking with some of my clients or those that contact me regarding assistance with debt issues. When I go through a budget with the family, I always notice that big parts of the budget besides rent/mortgage are the grocery expenses. Also I notice that the grocery expenses are often slim because the bills are so high. You should never have to sacrifice feeding yourself and your family to pay your credit card bills. Use Angel Food Ministries. They are just that, food delivered by Angels.
