budgeting , shopping on limited funds, recipes on a budget-
general topics- how much do u spend on groceries?
many ppl are posting maybe a separate category
I think that this is something that fits well within Home Cooking. You could start a thread, and if there is enough interest, you could have new editions when the thread gets full. Like the What's For Dinner thread.
Threads on these and similar topics are posted in General Topics, Home Cooking, and sometimes Chains, and people seem to be finding them well enough and posting to them. But the topics don't come up so often that a dedicated forum would get much traffic.
Sometimes a forum that looks potentially popular, doesn't appeal to chowhounds. Look at Vegetarian & Vegan, for example. It's a major field, many cookbooks and some TV cooking programs are devoted to it. Yet only six new topics have been started this month, only three topics have been posted to since April 8, and the highest number of posts in a topic is around 40, which is rare.
