Groceries on the cheap is looking at the Put Dinner On The Table meal train from a different prospective. The emphasis is on purchasing good food shelf/ freezer stable staples at the lowest possible cost and purchasing enough to last you until it goes on sale again -- Keeping a controlled non-perishable stock of the things you use on a regular basis. It means that when you shop you don't buy just what you need for a day or a week. You buy a loss leader protein, produce you will need on sale, a stock item if it's a RBP, and dairy instead. This allows you to put well balanced meals on the table and feed your family on a consistent basis good, nutritious meals for a four dollar a day budget per person. You spend more time on the planning and shopping end of the meal train and less on the cooking end by cooking efficiently.
Four dollars a day is the target amount for people on snap. My premise is that of you can do it on four dollars a day, spending more isn't hard. You still get more bang for your buck.
