I am constantly looking for ways to cut expenses and free up more money to put away for our future so when I sat and looked at how much we were spending on food and groceries it really got me thinking about finding more budget friendly recipes.
The internet is a great resource for finding so many ways to save money, sometimes I find myself spending hours coming up with new ways to save a dollar that I had never even thought of before and often find myself spending the majority of my time on coupon and deal sites to find out what deals are available in the stores where we live.
A couple of years ago I found a site that has since become one of my most frequently visited sites on the internet, it has everything a savvy shopper could ever want, coupon match-ups, budget friendly recipes, tips and tricks and a whole lot more.
The same of the site says it all, 5 Dollar Dinners , I highly recommend that you check it out, you never know what you may find and you could learn a could new low cost recipes that your family will love.
Budget Friendly Recipes
While I love checking out the blog at 5 Dollar Dinners to find budget friendly recipes and coupon deals, it is not my only online source for low cost recipes, here are just a few of the sites I check out each week when we are sitting down to work on our weekly meal plan:
AllYou Magazine – most of you will recognize this magazine from the grocery store checkout lines, they have a little bit of everything in their magazine, family, food, lifestyle, coupons, health, and a ton more.
One of the things I like the most about AllYou is main theme of the magazine is budget friendly, you will find all sorts of budget friendly ideas from recipes to crafts and everything in between.
You can check out their big list of budget friendly recipes here.
Save A Lot Stores – while I have never been in a Save-A-Lot store, never even seen one, they have a huge database of recipes for us penny wise shoppers and all of their recipes are categorized by meal, you can even filter the recipes by ethnicity of the dish.
We have made several meals from the recipes we found on the Save-A-Lot website and always check them out when we are thinking about trying something new, you can check out the Save-A-Lot recipes here.
