My husband was so cute this weekend, twice is told me I should tell our readers a way we saved money. I apologize for the randomness of these two things, but they are great and my husband thinks everyone should know these tips.
1. Save money on your kids meals.
I admit that my kids have fast food once a week. We have a scheduled appointment every week during lunch and it’s our little treat. But honestly, it gets spendy. We only go to Wendy’s and I always get my children chicken nuggets, apple slices and milk. For two children to eat, it costs around $8. However, I found a way to cut that in half. Instead of ordering kids meals with mediocre prizes, I started ordering off the value menu where I get the chicken nuggets for $2.58 for two orders and the apple slices are $2 for two as well. My children don’t object to water so we just ordered two cups and that’s free making our grand total $4.58! My kids don’t miss the toys and I am saving money on our weekly indulgence. Most fast food places have a value meal so you can do this anywhere!
2. Upcycle your hamburger or hotdog buns.
Have you ever seen Father of the Bride 2 and the dad has a nervous breakdown in the store when he can’t buy the amount of buns he’s going to use, but instead he has to buy the standard eight? I am with the man, I hate that! We are a family of four and at most we eat six of eight buns. There are always two buns leftover and I hate wasting money by throwing them away. So now, I upcycle my buns. We like garlic bread around here so now with leftover buns, I butter them, throw some garlic salt on them and toast them in the oven. It’s wonderful and there is no waste! Bread is bread no matter what it looks like 🙂
Do you have any random tips to share with us? How are you saving money?
