One way we've found to save money on groceries is Angel Food Ministries. Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization that provides quality groceries at very frugal prices, distributed by host sites throughout the United States. This program is NOT just for low income families; it is open to any and everyone, regardless of your financial situation.
We place our orders by the monthly deadline for our state, and then return to the host site to pick up our boxes on the appointed date. Check out my Menu Plan Monday; most of the meat in this week’s menu comes from our Angel Food boxes.
A monthly box costs just $25 and looks like this:
JUNE 2007 MENU
(1) 16 oz. Sliced Frozen Carrots
(1) 16 oz. Corn
(1) 24 oz. Steak-Cut French Fries
(1) 8 oz. Corn Muffin Mix
(1) 1 lb. White Rice
(1) 14 oz. Peanut Butter
(1) 10 ct. Waffles
(1) 16 oz. Pinto Beans
(1) Dessert Item
There are also different monthly specials that cost under $20, and can include steaks, chicken, Italian sausage, or my favorite, 10 lbs of corn dogs for $18. I hope the corn dog special comes around before long - they sure make my life easier in the summer!
So. Angel Food Ministries - helping me save money on groceries every month. Works For Me.
