My husband and I are studying a class with Dave Ramsey at church and we’re re-learning how to deal with money, and one of the ways to understand how to deal with money is to understand what you are spending it on and how often. Are you going out to eat all the time? How much do you spend on your groceries? Do you plan out a menu?
These are all great questions that the $5.00 Dinner Mom, Erin Chase, knows the answer to. She has money saving recipes down to the dollar. Remember, spending 5.00 every day over a period of years adds up, so make sure you’re spending your 5.00 wisely. Take her new book for example, The $5 Dinner Mom Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook. In this book you’ll find 200 recipes broken down into how much each meal costs. In her books she gives you hints and tips on how to save money at the grocery store. A penny saved is a penny earned in my book and we are serious coupon clippers in my house. I just saved 107.00 at the grocery store yesterday. Another way Erin helps you to save money and time is by helping you plan ahead by making some parts of the meal ahead of time. One tip is to stock up with sales.
In the cookbook The $5 Dinner Mom Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook you’ll find recipes like:
Breakfast favorites include:
– Chocolate Chip Raspberry Pancakes
– Bacon and Egg Quesadillas
– Vanilla Almond French Toast
– Overnight Honey Nut Granola
Lunch favorites include:
– Curried Chicken Salad Sandwiches
