Welcome to week 2 of the ABCs of Frugal Living! Each week, for 26 weeks, I’m bringing you a resource to help you save money on different aspects of your life. This week I’m featuring Budget Bytes, a blog that creates recipes and breaks down the cost of both the recipe and ingredients! When I first decided to use Budget Bytes for this week, I didn’t realize that I’ve used a few of her recipes already, pretty recently in fact! I went through all 11 or so pages of her recipes to make sure I didn’t miss any, and found 4 of her recipes I’ve made and totally recommend, along with a bunch of others I’m going to try really soon.
For the most part, she tries to bring us healthy recipes, but as you can see in my list below, it’s totally okay to indulge sometimes. You can eat healthy on a budget, if you know where to look! Please check out her blog here and give her some love, try a few recipes, share them on Pinterest, etc. Enjoy, and save money at the same time!
