    Do we really crave the foods we were feed as a child? Will our children really crave boxed pizza if that is what we fed them? First glance I would say yes. That is what all the parenting papers say. And I did make homemade baby food for my kids and whole wheat bread for a reason, right? But...

Of course, I'm sure that most of you can probably do even better than that. But for someone who is just starting out trying to save money on groceries, this would be a...

    We now have 12 baby chicks, meat birds, that are about 1 week old. Bought them at the farm store last saturday, a unplanned purchase. Years ago, we have chickens and other barnyard fowl around so nothing real new to us. I don't remember ever raising babies up though. Hubby gave them a slice of...

    I could not believe it Walmart has big bags of laying hen's chicken feed. They also have mineral blocks, salt blocks, big bags of Pig feed, horse feed,and milk supplements. I guess Walmart is going to start competing with the feed store. Has anyone else noticed this at their Walmart or is it...

    Now, I know breastfeeding is the ultimate frugal choice but it just didn't work out for me. That said, I've compared Similac powder, ready to feed liquid (RTF) and the use of the $5 checks. Please check my math. I have used average prices based on the few stores I have price compared. Powder...

    I'm looking for some frugal lunch ideas for my kids. It's so easy to heat a store bought frozen dinner for them, but I want to try and avoid that. My 6 year old is super picky. I was thinking of cooking large batches of items and freezing in single portions.

    I found out recently that Ol'Roy dog food in the yellow bag is the same thing Pedigree. I did'nt believe it at first, but after buying a bag and comparing it side by side, it was the same. It is $7 cheaper than Pedigree for a 50lb bag. Well at least it is the same size and shape. It also smells...

    My son is 6 and is eating like a teenager lately! I think part of the problem is that at school they only have 20 min to eat so I don't think he's getting a lot of food for lunch. They do have snack in the afternoon, but I'm kind of limited on what I can send for that. Although I'm open to...

I have been keeping record of the price increase of feed in my "bunny log" and this time last year, I was paying $31.90 for #200 - yesterday I paid $46 for the same brand & weight. The owner was truly sick...
