Hey I ran across this great blog called the $5 Dinner.  This mom apparently loves to cook, but likes to keep things economical too.  Think about it.  If you had dinner for $5 a day (and some of her recipies double for a second meal like pork and potatoes, with the left over pork being bbq pulled pork for another meal) then you’d be spending $35 on dinners a week!  Add to that oatmeal for breakfasts, and some simple soups and sandwiches for lunch and you have a weeks worth of food for less than $50!!!  Wowsers!  I’ve been doing a LOT of reading on this stuff lately, because I want to be as frugal as possible (without sacrificing my sanity) when it comes to our eating.  We eat out very seldom which helps a ton if you really keep track and break down where your food money is going.  But anyway, I’m always on the lookout for more ways to save.  This week my goal is to make out a month’s menue so that when I go shopping on Monday I’ll have an ingredients list of exactly what I need minus what I have at home on hand already.  I think it will save us oodles of cash in the long run.  I’ll let you know how it goes!  Ta ta
