Jennie Garth Shares How Growing Up Her Family Ate On Only $12 A Week!

Jennie Garth shared in her new RetailMeNot blog today how her family grew up eating on only $12 a week! How did they feed a family of 8 for that price? "We grew much of our own food, and I can still remember flipping through the tattered pages of my mom’s favorite cookbook, about feeding a family on $12 a week," Jennie said. While she may have played the wealthy Kelly Taylor on 90210 for 13 years, she explained how her upbringing played the biggest influence on financial habits today. "Yes, I live in L.A., but I don’t live in a mansion with a cook and a butler." Jennie continued by saying, "Every minute is precious, and now more than ever, every dollar I bring home, or manage to save, means more safety and security for my family and our future.”
