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)

Ingredients:
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

How to Save $10,000 This Year

I first posted this last Jan. (2011)- thought it was worthwhile posting again this year! Also, I mistakenly entered $24.40 in the original post as the amount to save each day-the correct amount is $27.40. 




Yes, you can save (or make--depending on how you look at it!) $10,000 by the end of this year, and it is really pretty easy.

Save $27.40 each day, and after 365 days, you will have saved $10,001 dollars.

Of course, since we are now about 14 days in to Jan., you will need to adjust that savings a bit- but still, you get the gist, right?

And if you save $10 a day, you can still have $3,650.

How about $5 a day? That will give you a nice savings of $1,825.

How to save money each day? Here are a few ideas:


Skip Starbucks--make your own coffee
Skip the take-out lunch--make peanut butter and jelly snadwiches
Make spaghetti 2 times a week--skip the meat
Buy a water filter and drink tap water--skip the bottled waters
Put back one item from your grocery cart each time you shop--and save the co…

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…
