Making A Budget Friendly Meal

At a time when retailers are making it a marketing game against the general consumer you can still win.

My husband loves to eat out and I don’t like to cook but even with the skyrocketing prices it is cheaper and healthier to eat at home. Here is one meal you can fix at home for about ten bucks and still feed about four people.

Crock Pot Easy Fix

You can’t go wrong with this boneless Applewood Spiral Ham ($8.49 at Food Lion). Add red potatoes, apple slices and broccoli. I added just enough water to cook the veggies.

You can also still save at the checkout by using coupons. While coupons are limited most larger grocery chains have their own savings programs.

Stock up on staples that can be put in plastic containers for long term storage like flour, sugar, oatmeal, dried beans when they are on sale.

Make the most of reward programs…they do make a difference in the long run. Stay healthy and throw your savings into a jar for that special event or purchase.

Have a great day!
