    so true. about how things become very routine and dont seem as intimidating or time consuming as they once did (ie... making your own cookies from scratch, homemade cleaning products)

    thanks for sharing!

    For some reason, I could not get the video to play on my computer. I wish I could have seen how she does this. I consider myself to be "super frugal", I there is NO WAY I could feed us on $21 a week. Do they drink milk? Eat fresh fruit?

    They really didn't go into any detail at all about how she does it other than making stuff from scratch. She also has a small farm with a garden & chickens.

    That was interesting. They did say that it was for $21 plus what she has at home and she does have a nice sized pantry, her garden and chickens. I agree that it is true that once you get used to doing something it really becomes routine and less intimidating (making things from scratch).
