    What is a good estimate for a food budget for a few ranges of incomes? I hear so many different things but just want to know is too much or too little.

    Rachel, this was a great video, thanks! I appreciate you saying “practice contentment” and that sometimes it’s just a season to get to where we want to be. Needed to hear that in my life/situation this week. I know it’s so simple and as a Christian I feel silly even needing to be reminded! At any rate, it was good to to hear.
