30 Day of Eating In: Week Three

I went grocery shopping on Day 18 and spent $82, that makes $315 for the month so far. I'm finding it hard to reduce our grocery bill much lower. My goal is to get under $400 for the month, and I'm not sure if we are going to make it. I ran out of chicken, pork chops, and ham a the same time so I need to restock my freezer next week. I did splurge on some tuna steak this week though. I haven't had tuna steak in two years, and it seemed like a much tastier idea than the salmon I was planning on buying.

To save money, I plan my meals around the what is on sale, and I clip all of the coupons that I can. Honestly though, there aren't that many that I can use since I'm on a gluten free diet.
