Besides helping people spend less and eat better, I post recipes, some old ones that have been remade to be a bit more healthy. Also, techniques to scratch cook efficiently. No one these days, especially working parents wants to set out and cook a meal that takes over an hour to prepare after they have worked all day and suffered the ordeal of a long commute.
I feed three of us on 45.00 a week. We eat well. Granted, we are seniors and a small child, but it is indicative of what you can do with a little money.
To answer the person or one like him, here is a list of things at the dollar tree that will take you through a few days for ten bucks.
- 1 dozen eggs
- 1 package pinto beans
- 1 package white rice
- 1 package pasta
- 1 can pasta sauce
- 1 carton oatmeal
- Pizza crust
- Peanut butter
Another ten would buy seasonal veggies and fruit.
This is by no means a steady diet. Its just keep your tummy happy until payday when you can replenish your food supply with healthy choices.
