My Story


Welcome to my little internet corner…

Hi friends, my name is Aimee and I am so glad that you have found my blog! Eating Healthy Spending Less is a tool that you can use to help your family stick to a grocery budget, eat healthy, and learn new techniques to make the process easy. 

When my husband and I first got married we moved out of state for him to work on his graduate degree, which left me bringing in the bulk of the income. Just getting by, I began talking to other women in my similar circumstance and learning how to coupon and shop the grocery ads. I also started researching deal websites for help.

Later on in our marriage, when the economy tanked, we found ourselves in a similar situation and now with a mortgage payment. We were a family of three and I needed to act fast to make sure all our bills were paid. I put us on a strict grocery budget of only $30 a week to get us through the summer with high utility bills, and I taught myself how to still eat healthy on a budget. I didn’t want to just sit around eating processed foods and feeling like a failure, especially since I had a daughter to care for.

This girl’s on a budget!

This led me to where I am today. We are now a family of 6 and on the Dave Ramsey Baby Step Plan. Using my methods we are consumer debt free, and working towards building wealth. We work really hard to save our money, and in doing so I have slashed our grocery budget again, only this time it’s easier because this system that I’ve worked so hard to achieve actually works! We are able to easily feed our family healthy nutritious meals on a budget, even with dietary restrictions.

Eating healthy on a budget…

My husband and I were gluten-free for 7 years, however we are both now able to tolerate sourdough bread. Due to several auto-immune symptoms that I experienced over the past few years I changed my diet to a whole food plant-based way of eating. My husband and children fully support me, though they are not completely plant-based. Many of my recipes here do contain meat, since I started this blog prior to eating plant-based. However, the newer recipes here are plant-based, which is perfect if you are looking for egg-free or dairy-free recipes.

My hope is that you find a way to eat healthy on a budget. Eating healthy looks different to everyone, however, the common goal is to achieve a fresher, less processed foods diet in an economical way. That’s exactly what I’m going to show you! 

Anyways, I hope you will allow me to teach you what I’ve learned, so that your family can Eat Healthy and Spend Less!
