The Dinner Report

Had this idea to share the actual cost of our dinners. I have seen so many TV shows and magazines that are toting the "$10 dinner" and I know a lot of people whose totals are WAY less than $10 (for the whole meal, not per person).
So, here is what we had for dinner 5/19

Hot Dogs and Mac N Cheese
(needed a soft and easy meal after a dental visit,ouch!)
hot dogs-.98 x 2=$1.96(-1.00/2 coupon) Final cost=.96 for 2pkgs (16 hot dogs)
buns .84 x 2=$1.68
mac n cheese= FREE at Kroger last week in the crazy combo deal
condiments from stockpile
total cost for family of 6=$2.64

Post your Dinner Report here! Use the fabulous Mr.Linky to share yours!

3 Ways to Get Ready for Summer CHEAPLY!

1. If you have an ice maker, let it run! Bag ice in plastic grocery bags to store for use in ice chests later.

2. Gather up your Wipes boxes. If you have small children (or even older ones) make them a travel box! Fill with small candies, fun pads, crossword puzzles, toys, or other small treats. Create your own scavenger hunt for long road trips (ex. Find a license plate from ___ state, 10 pts., include landmarks and easy to find items for younger kids)

3.Make a planned itinerary (with pictures) for the kids. Even make them their own maps! Trips go much smoother if they can keep up on where they are, where they are going and what to expect. Use recycled paper or paper grocery bags, cut pics from magazines, etc. Leave a place for them to journal or check off the days events, and they have a great one of a kind souvenir before you leave the house.
