We are always looking for ways to save money. So we started menu planning. Once we got that down we wanted to take it even further to save money. We added in one meatless meal a night a night of breakfast for dinner and a leftovers night. Leaving us 4 ‘bigger' meals to plan for a week. It has really saved our budget.
While we do the simple eggs and bacon, breakfast potatoes, pancakes, french toast, omelets etc we also like to have the occasional extravagant breakfast. Scones, roll ups, casseroles, etc.

I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
