Girls, I am loving these great ideas!
Today’s suggestion for making ends meet is to plan meals. I find when I plan my meals, I use my food more wisely, and we are tempted to eat out less! I’ve gone through different phases of meal planning. When my kids were younger, I had a monthly meal plan that I used. Then I moved to just planning out my meals each week–thinking through our activities and considering what ingredients I had on hand. Regardless of how I plan my meals what always stays the same is that when I plan my meals, we save money.
Keep the ideas coming in. And remember, to get the most out of this contest:
