A mom's 'backyard supermarket'

With food prices on the rise, we are all spending more at the grocery store. But not Mavis Butterfield! This extreme saver spends only $100 a month to feed her family of four. So what's on her grocery list? Only three items: chicken, milk and butter. That's it! And it's all because she grows her own food! In fact, Mavis is trying to grow 2,000 pounds of food, in her backyard, by the end of this year! And no, she is not living on a farm.

Check out this great story of one everyday saver and maybe you can start your own garden at your house!

Keep up with Mavis on her website.
