Low Cost Grocery Shopping for Single Moms
Grocery shopping forms a large expense of any single mom’s budget each month. She has to make sure to provide nutritious & healthy meals for her dependents by buying various kinds of fruits & vegetables, as well as meat, grain or rice. Clipping discount coupons is not a very practical option for single moms because it takes too much time finding coupons & clipping them. Fortunately there are other ways to save money on grocery shopping. If you haven’t already read, be sure to read our article on Nutrition & Health Government Grants for Single Mothers.
