Lots of people experience times when there’s more month than money, when that next paycheck just can’t come fast enough. In lean times the rent still has to be paid. So does the power. But the grocery budget — now, there’s a place where a lot of us could economize– if only we could find food that our families will actually enjoy.
Here’s my idea. Would y’all be interested in doing a ‘Frugal Meals’ carnival sometime later in April? I am picturing each participant sharing 3 days worth of menus and recipes, as well as total food cost for the three days.
Of course it would be fun to see who could come up with the lowest per-person 3-day cost. But the yum-factor is important too. I’d love to see what you cook when you’re trying to stretch your money while still pleasing your family.
Does this sound like a fun carnival idea? Would you be likely to participate?
