It’s finally here…….The $5 Dinner Challenge!
Your mission…if you choose to accept it…is to challenge yourself to make a wholesome, balanced meal for $??? or less!
Why the ???…Well, $5 works for me and my family. Perhaps your family is smaller…or larger…or you live in a region of the country that has much higher prices than the middle of the Midwest where I live. I’d venture to say that prices in the middle of NYC or SF are much higher than those that I see in my grocery store. I’d also venture to say that it does indeed cost more to feed a family of 8! Or even 6! Especially if teenage boys are involved 🙂
The goal is to set a dollar amount for yourself based on your family size and grocery prices in your region that will CHALLENGE you to make meals for less than that amount! Every one is feeling the pinch on the budget these days. Staying in one night a week and doing the $5 Dinner Challenge will save you hundreds of $$$ over the course of a year! Start with this simple way to save 🙂
I can’t wait to read all the inexpensive dinner recipes that you all come up with!
