Feeding Four on $50 - Week One

Our $50/week grocery budget challenge might have been easier had we begun with a freezer full of food.
We didn't.
A stock pile of groceries would have been nice too.
We don't have much of that either.
I have a bit of a coupon collection, and know prices. That's my only advantage here.
We'll soon find out how good an advantage...
