Potlucks, family get-togethers, and holidays are a time of warmth, laughter, memories, and…. good food. What do you do if your budget is pennies to spare? Y’all can’t afford to eat out. You can’t afford to buy something. Groceries are increasingly expensive. Do you skip the gathering? Not host this time? Or do you think about what tasty homemade meals you can whip up without having to empty your wallet? Here are some ideas for low-budget meals with the large family gathering in mind.
Make sure you get your copy of my book, Happily Frugal: a wise money management workbook. It has over 700 ways to save money. If this topic is something you need, there is a chapter on feeding a family frugally.
So, what about drinks? Buying juice or soda for a big group is a bit pricey.
Is your crew staying over? Breakfast is the cheapest meal of the day.
LUNCH OR DINNER
Need to cook for a crowd, but not spend much?
These are super cheap meals that will feed a large group.
Whether you’re getting ready for the holidays when finances have been tough this year or you’ve been blessed with many children and have a lot of mouths to feed every day, I hope this blog helps you get more food with the money you have.
