Help For Budgets

Here's one of my new year's resolutions: get the budget under control! And although widowhood creates its own style of chaos, there are basic budget guidelines that can still be applied---like creating a menu, sticking to a grocery list, using coupons (my personal downfall), and getting FREE STUFF!

I'll be getting some help on all of the above from this website Money Saving Mom

I'm especially going to follow the articles on $35 to $60 Menus. Why? I'm sick of cooking, I hate grocery shopping, and deciding what to eat/feed people everyday is just a drag! Since I'm past "widow fog" now---maybe I'm dealing with getting-old-fog, lol! In any case, if I just follow this website I can find these low-cost menus and have a easy and economical answer for that dreadful question, "What's for supper?" The ideas will work for everyone, even widows!
Once you're on the website:
  • click on the ARTICLES tab at the top bar
  • click on CATEGORIES in the drop down menu
  • scroll down, down, down to FROM MY KITCHEN category
  • click on $35 to $60 Menus (linked here for your convenience)
I hope you enjoy this helpful site!


  1. Wow...you hit the nail right on the head with this post...I so do NOT have a budget! I don't mind grocery shopping but fixing what I buy doesn't seem to work...thus I have major guilt about wasting food! I've added Money Saving Mom to my favorites and will check them out to see if they can help me!

    Great post Ferree!
