Hi! I am new here and I am wanting to get more organized..
I am wanting to begin meal planning to help with my budgeting. My DF is getting laid off again tomorrow (he is a fiber optics technician and his work is thru a business that contracts so its about 3 months on and then 3-4 months off) and the company is not approving anyone for unemployment because there is work through the company but it is in a town that is 3 hours from where we live.
We are trying to budget wisely and micro manage money until either he finds a new job (he is planning on taking a week off to spend with me and our DS and then jumping right into looking) or there is a new contract in place. We have to budget tightly because we are due with our second child in October (it was a surprise baby but very much wanted by both of us and DS) and I have been having complications this pregnancy and cannot work.
I am wanting to start couponing, and definitely making a weekly meal plan to help cut out on junk and organize our grocery spending. If we have to we will apply for FS but we would rather not unless absolutely necessary.
Is there any website you use for recipes or creating a meal plan? What about coupons? Do any of you use them? What is a good site for it?
