So it’s time for another Pinterest board to be featured…and for March, we are highlighting the “Rice and Beans Budget” board. Dave Ramsey coined the phrase and it’s a popular one around here…and in our home. We are Dave Ramsey fans and really appreciate the simplicity of his plan to financial freedom and a debt free life. If you ever listen to radio show, you’ll often hear him talking about the “Rice and Beans Budget.”
As part of the “get your expenses under control” aspect of digging out of debt, food is one line item of the budget that can be reined in and it’s where big savings can happen. Hence his common phrase, “the only time you should see the inside of a restaurant is if you are working there.” Replace that time you used to go out to eat, with a rice and beans budget recipe and you can spend $100s a month and $1000s a year less on dining out!!! (Hello, debt snowball getting bigger and gaining speed!)
We’ve compiled some of our favorite rice and beans based meals into one place on Pinterest.
If you’ve got a favorite recipe that you’d like added to the board, please leave a link in the comments, or email it to me. I love having this great resource for those on a “Rice and Beans Budget” to turn to for help in making fabulous meals for less!
