Cut your grocery bill with these 8 healthy ingredients for $1 on Shine

Cut your grocery bill with these 8 healthy ingredients for $1 on Shine

The thing I like best about this article is the reminder that we can save money on our food bill and it can taste delicious. With the cooler weather and shorter days coming on it's a good time to think about comfort foods - soups, stews, and chili. All these can be made very affordable and bring the family together for a hot meal. Combine it with a salad and french or corn bread for a evening to relax and enjoy being at home. Another benefit of these meals is for the family on the go. They simmer well on the stove so people can grab a bowl as they are coming in. Don't be afraid to experiment. Some of my best soups have been made by rummaging around the frig and throwing in something extra. Did you know that radishes taste good in almost every soup?

If you don't have a cookbook there is a link to Betty Crocker on the side bar. Who can beat Betty for knowing how to get around in a kitchen? Go ahead and pull out the apron if you want to feel like a real pro. lol. Sometimes it's the little things that make a house a home.

The Simple Dollar is also running a post titled 20 Favorite Dirt Cheap Meals that you might enjoy.  Cooking at home is one of the the fastest ways to reduce your expenses but more importantly are the good memories that come from having a family meal and remembering the times together.
