How can you SAVE money when the food is so EXPENSIVE?!
WHY does it cost so much more than the grocery store?!
Then the simple statement: I cant afford to feed my family this food.
I used to think the same way! I would see prices of $7-$10 for a jar of this or that blend and immediately write it off as "too rich for my blood!" :) To be honest, I still see some of the items as a splurge, but there are definite money savers, not to mention the health benefits. So let's dig in!
#1 Macaroni and Cheese
A kid classic! I don't think I've ever met a kid who didn't love this stuff!
But, we all know how gross it is. The ingredients list gives it away! It's also not that cheap when you think about it. If your kids are eating this as their entire meal, which...let's face it a lot of kids do...you probably need a box for every two kids. I have 3 kids, one is a preteen, I would need two boxes of this to feed them.
Wildtree offers a product called Kids Cheez, which is essentially the "cheese packet" that comes in the above box but with no preservatives, dyes, MSG, etc. It is an organic, dare I say healthy product.
A jar of this has several servings, so you mix this ^ with a box of this
And BOOM, you have plenty of Mac and cheese for the family, and it's healthier, AND you have plenty of the blend left over for next time. Another $1 box of pasta will feed your mac and cheese loving kids!
Another staple in my house is dip. My kids LOVE dip for their pretzels.
So when I got my huge box of Wildtree goodies, the first thing I made was Dill Dip.
Equals dip for days. Many of us keep sour cream in the fridge all the time for various recipes so what this jar of delicious dill dip blend does for me is knock an item completely off my grocery list. Sure it's a $2-$4 item depending on the brand you buy but if it's a staple on your grocery list every week, that savings will add up! Not to mention it's healthier, and you can control the amount you make which reduces waste.
2 of my 3 kids could eat spaghetti everyday...the third likes it in small doses. Unfortunately for him, majority rules, and mommy like spaghetti too so it's a weekly dinner go to.
This was our go to spaghetti sauce
Because it was healthier, and it tasted fresher than other brands. This retails for close to $4 but I justified the price bc when mixed with a $1 box of spaghetti I was essentially feeding my family of 5 for $1 per meal (before the meatballs and garlic bread). Now this is my go to:
This can costs me about $1.50! So there is another $2.50 savings every week, and it tastes so fresh and delicious!
This needs no explanation. I think most people agree that pizza is delicious, and amazing, and delicious. :) Healthy? Well that's a horse or a different color...
It sure is good though! Which is why I'm so thrilled to know that Wildtree offers products that let me feed my family PIZZA, and feel good knowing they didn't just eat their weight in insecticides, preservatives, dyes, GMOs, you get my point.
So, pizza in our house looks like this:
I think it goes without saying that this is much cheaper than delivery.
Who doesn't love dessert?! Especially CHOCOLATE! Boxes of cookies and candies are expensive, and we all know they are filled with absolute crap. Delicious crap...but crap nonetheless. A bag of Oreos is about $3-$4, one little candy bar at checkout is almost a buck by itself, and they're just horrible for you! For basically no time at all, you could have this:
All you need are these
And you have a dessert that is made from a certified organic product.
So, there you have it! Yummy food that is good for your family, and saves you money at the grocery store. These meals cost me even less because I signed up as a Wildtree rep and got a HUGE box of food for pennies on the dollar. If you would like to get these savings too, now is the time!
