Probably a no brainer..

But figured I would share it anyway.

When money is tight and we need to stick to a budget. I like to make a tad bit larger meal each night, so that there is some left over. Still within the budget. And make up my lunches from those meals for the week. Saves my sanity from those boring pb&j sandwiches. And I get to enjoy a nice meal during the day as well.

You probably already do this or you send it off with your spouse.. but for those that don’t. This is perfect! 🙂

We had burritos tonight for dinner. Had plenty left over. So I split it up into two containers and turned it into a mexican salad. Enough for two meals. So I figured I’d take a picture of it .. along side with stir fry from last night. And share it.


Have a budget life/ sanity saver? Share it!

  1. I love leftovers for lunch and I think turning burritos into a salad for the next day is a great idea.

    This post would make a great addition to Our Growing Edge, a monthly blog link up just for new food adventures. It’s a fun way to share your new food experiences with other foodies. This month’s theme is WORK DAY EATING which includes any recipe or food experience suitable for the work day such as lunch, snacks or easy meals.
