About my meals, we like to have a big salad almost every evening so that is why I have so many fresh vegetables. My goal is an average of $75 week, so some weeks will be higher and some lower. I buy fresh stuff weekly but other things, I buy on sale and with coupons and usually have a small stockpile of things we use regularly.
