Hearty Meals on a Budget


Lately, we have really been focused on planning out our meals for the week and shopping only for things we need.  We are certainly starting to feel the financial strain of having a baby, and with daycare and diapers it’s hard to afford anything extra.

Here’s what we have done to reduce our spending:

  1. Utilizing coupons and deals for diapers, wipes, clothes, food and more from the free app called, Retail Me!
  2. Make a list of meals for the week on a magnetic marker board!  We found one for $5 on amazon – Here it is!
  3. Find tasty, affordable recipes on Budget Bytes at www.budgetbytes.com

We have tried:

Sundried Tomato Pasta

Slow Cooker Rosemary Garlic Beef Stew

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken

What tricks are up your sleeve for affordable, fast and easy dinners?
