FOUR FIFTY FRIDAY

During our little Seattle visit a couple of weeks ago, Chelle, Aminta, and I were super inspired by our dear friend Leslie's frugal dinner ideas. Her goal is to make every dinner (entire dinner mind you) $4.50 or less! And to top it off, Leslie + Nick frequently host dinners in their home. We were all really challenged to work on our own groceries budgets when we returned home.

How many of you are up to the challenge too?

If so, I think it would be great if we could make every Friday here "FOUR FIFTY FRIDAY" and could share some of our favorite dinner ideas that cost $4.50 or less. You don't have to share every Friday, but hopefully enough people will want to participate that we can get a least one recipe a week (especially from you, Miss Leslie!).

Are you in?

Yay! I am so excited about this new weekly post. And so is David. It's totally turned into a game of sorts for us and we are in for sure!

Love this idea!!

For sure! I was doing all of our shopping locally and was able to get everything for all week at only $100. I was amazed at how just budgeting and planning had minimized out budget and made my life so much simpler. I could grab a recipe and know that I had everything that I needed to make it. I was much easier then I thought it would be.
So, I am totally in!
Thank you so much for the idea Andi!
HUGS!

nothing is better then being inspired with new recipes and saving some dough in the meantime!

I will post mine for this week during naptime!! Its a super simple lazy night type of dinner, cause thats the only sort we seem to be having lately, until I get some energy back!

Love this idea but I am so bad with my grocery budget...$4.50? Is it really possible? It will be fun to see what everyone comes up with and I will try my hardest to come up with something as well!
