I do a lot of crock pot meals. If you plan right, you can make your meals stretch with a limited budget.
Chicken & rice is one of my favorites.
I make pizza from scratch, and it costs about the same as a frozen one in the store. Less than ordering out.
I make soup from scratch.
I also use the crock pot. Planning meals that way helps them to stretch further, and end up costing less.
Crock pot meals can be cheap. Chili, Taco's, spaghetti.
We have a budget of $600 a month for the 7 of us. We do lots of pasta dishes, casseroles, salads, crockpot meals. Some months are harder than others. We know what our kids love and know what they don't love.
tacos, sloppy joes, spaghetti...we use venison so we just have to buy the extras. Most of it I have in the house so it is only a couple dollars a meal :)
