Save Money By Having Breakfast for Dinner!

Breakfast just happens to be my favorite meal of the day, so it is a delicious option for our family to make a "breakfast meal for dinner" every so often! Dishes made with eggs can be very easy on your food budget, so why not serve one up one night soon?

Try this recipe for a Spinach Omelet. Add some dinner rolls and a tossed salad for a yummy cheap dinner menu!

(Serves about 4)

8 large eggs
4 cups large-leaf spinach
Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat 2 Tbs. vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Rinse the spinach and pat dry with a paper towel. Add the spinach to the oil and suate until it wilts down, about 2 minutes.

In a bowl, whisk eggs together. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Then pour the eggs into the pan.
Turn down the heat and let the eggs set. When they start to get solid, carefully turn the omelet over. Heat until the eggs are fully cooked.

Divide into four servings and enjoy!


Totally agree! I love omelettes any time of day, I like to think of having them for dinner as very Parisian! Poached eggs are good too! Emma @ Tightwad

Things To Do With Empty Cans of Soup

All of these ideas start with a clean empty soup can with no jagged edges. For some you may want to peel off the labels, others you might just leave the labels on!

1.. Having a picnic? Use empty Campbells soup cans as utensil holders for plastic forks and spoons on the picnic tables. (leave labels on ..adds a colorful unique touch!)

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.
7. Make a Christmas Lum…

Home Made Halloween Costumes

Halloween is around the time to start cooking up some Halloween costumes you can make from home and save money while treating your little ghosts and goblins to a fun night!

This idea came from I just changed a couple of things, but basically the costume idea is the same.

Home Made Spider Costume

long sleeve black top/shirt
4 long black socks
newspaper, grocery bags, paper bags, or anything else you can use to stuff the socks with
a black knit cap
black yarn

Stuff each sock with paper or bags or filling of some sort.

Attach each sock to the side seams of the shirt (two socks on each side)
(I would suggest sewing the socks to securely attach them to the shirt, but duct tape can probably work as well.)

Next,  you will want to attach the black yarn in-between each sock and the cuffs of the shirt. This can be done in a couple of different ways. You can use the duct tape to attach a yarn piece at the cuff of the sleeve, and then tape the end of the yarn on t…

D.I.Y. Wrinkle Face Mask

Want a cheaper way to fight wrinkles?

Reservatol is one of the best antioxidants you can use to help keep wrinkles at bay, problem is that beauty products containing this ingredient are usually pretty expensive. 
Luckily, red grapes have plenty of this amazing natural antioxidant. So instead of spending your hard-earned money on brand name facials, try making this d.i.y wrinkle face mask at home instead.

All you'll need to make this facial at home are a few red grapes, a little olive oil and some flour. It's easy to make this all-natural beauty treatment, so why not give it a try?
Ingredients: 4-6 red grapes 1 Tbs. olive oil 3 Tbs. flour
How To: Gently cut open the grapes to remove any seeds, then puree the grapes with the olive oil in a blender. Mix the grape puree with the flour in a small bowl.
Smooth gently over face (make sure to clean your skin first,) and relax for about 15 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.
