    hi there. this i am good with at least when people come over to eat

    they say i am. buy beans buy the bag, dried beans whatever kind or

    color come to mind and make bean soup, adding in any veggies you have

    on hand but not untill after the beans are cooked to ready. and make

    home made corn bread. ta da money saveing tummy filling diner. my

    little girl loves beans home cooked not from a can. her reason why is

    that beans are gassy. and she loves it.

    i even use dried beans to make chili they have the red ones in bags

    too.

    also you can cook the beans up so they are done, drain the water off

    of them let them cool and mash them up and make pattys out of them for

    bean burgers. then fri them up just like a burger.

    they have all different colors (in case of a kid only wanting one

    color of food to eat) they are healthy ( as long as your not allergic

    to them) they are super cheap!!! they are very versitale.

    Here are some thing that have improved my budget. DH works out of town, once a week we have TV dinner night. Each of us eat a Banquet meal that I usually get at the store for $1 each. All have vegis and a desert and the kids think it is a treat. When buying loss leaders, only go to one or two stores and stock up. You won't need to buy Windex for a year if you get 6 bottles and paid $5. Get multiple copies of coupons so you can stock up. I buy 6 copies of the Sunday paper from Dollar Tree and only pay $6 for the papers. Most weeks, there are freebie coupons, high value or other coupons that will make sure I don't have to buy toothpaste for a year. Get the Walgreens and CVS monthly books. Both will tell you what items are free after rebate or ECB's. Some months I can get 5 boxes of tampons and receive that
    money back in ECBs to pay for things like milk and eggs. I make sure I only go to 2 store per week, so I am not running around and spending money on gas. Also a good meal for the kids when dad is gone is breakfast at dinner. Pancakes or Eggs with toast and they are happy!

    Feed them good before you go shopping. When my children were small and we

    went to the grocery store-I got something from home to keep them interested

    in; Now I have an adopted son,10 yo, I give him a hand full of coupons and

    turn him loose. He can shop better than me.
