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:
- Utilizing coupons and deals for diapers, wipes, clothes, food and more from the free app called, Retail Me!
- Make a list of meals for the week on a magnetic marker board! We found one for $5 on amazon – Here it is!
- 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?
