Lately I have been struggling with how much I spend on groceries, and feel like I am spending more than I should, and a lot of it has to with having food intolerances.
I spend roughly $75 – $100 a week on groceries, bearing in mind I can’t eat anything containing even trace amounts of dairy, and very little gluten. Eating healthy, and staying full throughout the day have become a challenge for me without spending an arm and a leg.
I do try to get the almond coconut milk that I use at the lowest possible price. I also bake my own gluten free/dairy free bread, make my own cookies, and I try to make as much from scratch as I can because it is less expensive. I don’t know if it is just part of living in Portland, and Portland has expensive groceries or what.
so I am trying to change things up and see what I can do to eat healthy and cut costs.
I have also been considering a costco membership for at least a year, and see if I can save some money on things like coconut chips, dried cherries, and anything else I can find that I can use.
