My 5 Basic Rules for Eating Gluten Free On a Budget

  1. Make the best possible use of naturally gluten-free foods.
  2. Use prepared gluten-free products judiciously.
  3. Save money in other areas.
  4. Never stop learning.
  5. Maintain your sense of humor, if you can.

That's it. I'll expand on these in future postings.

Excellent rules for GF on a budget! I say this as chief cook for a GF gang of 4 that includes one college student & one MALE 17 yo. We're always on a budget, but even more so with growing teens who are GF. Your rules are def. rules to send along as your kids go out the door to college & start managing their own budgets.

If I may add, a couple other things I've discovered over the years that have helped budgeting with a GF family:

* Find other families/folks who shop GF. I found folks at our local GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group) who were interested in sharing intel by email on local GF specials.

* Do bulk-buy splits w/GF buddies. Lower costs & stuff is less likely to go stale. Some local health food stores offer discounts for case lot orders / 25 lb. sacks.

* Do specialty co. orders together, saving on shipping costs.

* Get your kids in the kitchen while they're young & still think cooking is fun, to teach basic cooking & GF baking skills. Even preschoolers love to measure, stir, drop cookie batter, etc. When they're teens eating 4,000 cal/day, you'll appreciate their help on keeping up with the baking.
