Just Not Into Spending Money


I should have joined the No Spend Challenge for February as I am really not into spending money right now.  Maybe it's the Paxil that has made me so much more focused and therefore helps me to stay on track.  Don't misunderstand me as I am not advocating taking Paxil to help you with your financial goals. 

In my quest to save $400 in February and March, I have made up a list of entrees of items I have on hand.  I did this in one sitting and I know that there are more that I can come up with over the next week.  Here they are:

1. Chili
2. Chili Mac - leftover chili with macaroni and topped with cheese
3. Sloppy Joes
4. Meatloaf
5. Stir fry with pork or chicken
6. Pigs in a Blanket
7. Hamburger Gravey
8. Chicken or Turkey Casserole
9. Chicken Pasta casserole topped with breadcrumbs
10. Pulled Pork sandwiches
11. Pork slices with teriyaki sauce on rice
12. Honey Orange Chicken
13. Pizza
14. Pasta with meat sauce
15. Apricot Chicken
16. Waffles with sausage
17. Fried Chicken
18. Quiche Lorraine
19. Calico beans with some hamburger and cornbread
20. Tacos
21. Ham with scalloped potatoes
22. Tater Tot Casserole
23. Chicken Dumpling Soup
24. Hamburgers
25. Roast Beef
26. Ham and Bean Soup
27. Beef n Noodles
28. Vegetable soup with grilled cheese sandwiches
29. Oven BBQ chicken
30. Fried Rice with chicken
31.  Sesame Chicken

These are simple easy meals to serve with a vegetable and salad.  Best of all since I have the ingredients on hand, I will be saving money on groceries to put towards my goal of saving.

I could make Vegetarian meals all month long to save money as I have most of the ingredients i would need already in my pantry, but Hubby likes a couple of red meat meals a week and my freezer is empty of meat. So I still have to shop.

Martha it,s not to late to join us, how about it.
