My husbands hours got cut back at work. On top of it all our car needs new breaks. We have money in savings but it won't last long. Any ideas on cut backs or cheap meal ideas!! No, we still do not qualify for PA. I WANT honest options on cheap meals..

Pasta, and rice are cheap and filling. You can do a ton of things with both.

Frozen chicken, frozen veggies (you get more for your dollar, then canned or fresh)

What do you typically eat?

The best advice I have is to buy as many whole foods as you can and go from there.

Buy flour, sugar, oats, whole chickens, whole roasts, bulk produce...portion everything when you get home and freeze for later use. Bake your own breads, muffins, rolls and the like. It cuts out processed nonsense, tastes better and is healthier for you.

so, get one pepper for each person in your home. mix together some dry rice, minced onion, onion powder, garlic, salt, pepper and mix it well with some burger meat. cut the tops off and take the insides out as well as the membranes. stuff the pepper with the mixture and place them inside a 9x9 dish that can be used in the oven. add a can of tomato soup and add a little bit of water to the bottom of the dish. you can add the tops on top of the pepper if you'd like too. i think the oven needs to be set at 350 degrees and it should cook for about 30 mins.

you can google other stuffed pepper recipes too.
