I go food shopping once every two weeks. It’s a plan that has helped our family stay within our budget. But as we near day 12, 13, or 14, we find that our supply of food dwindles rapidly. We are often at bare bones, and sometimes, I need to get creative with meals to use up what we have on hand. My kids often joke that those throw-together-whatever-is-in-the-fridge meals are often the best.
