Over the weekend I had a fun idea to highlight some of my fun money saving ideas for you. So this week, I’ll be posting:
- Meals you can serve your family for a $1.00 or less per plate
- Crafts you can make with your kids for $1.00 or less
- Ways you can serve/bless others for $1.00 or less
- Random $1.00 or less tips
It’s going to be kind of hodge-podge because I’m trying to keep you on your toes. Or maybe I’m just unorganized. (Hey, I’m working on it.)
First a fun craft and service idea for around a dollar or less
You all know I’m not the craftiest gal among us. But I can cut and glue, so there’s that. I had fun making these fun Owl Gift Sacks a couple years ago. You’ll find the free printables for this project here. Print ’em off, cut, glue, and fill the sacks with a treat to share. Get your kids involved. Have fun!
Now how about a recipe?
It’s the perfect time of year to put Garden Veggie Chicken Skillet on your menu frequently. This is a one-dish meal. It uses many vegetables, you can make it to your family’s liking, and it doesn’t cost much to make. I’ve calculated that it costs $1.00 or less per plate!
