Introducing….5 Minutes for Deals!

by Lolli

I don’t know about you, but saving money has become one of my top priorities lately. It has to be a priority. Times are tough!

More people means more groceries to buy

When I was newly married, I was able to keep the family food budget really low. Shopping for the two of us wasn’t that hard….and I admit that I wasn’t making anything fancy for us to eat. Ramen noodles and canned soup is cheap.

Almost 17 years later, our situation is a little different. We’ve added 5 more people to the family, which increases our food consumption quite a bit (particularly the teens and pre-teen boy. Wow!). Plus, we have pickier tastes now. Ramen and frozen burritos just don’t cut it for dinner anymore.

So, for my own benefit and yours, too, I am thrilled to announce the official launch of 5 Minutes for Deals.

This is something we at 5 Minutes for Mom have been working on behind the scenes for quite some time, and we couldn’t be more excited that it’s ready!

These are some great tips for saving me. I am a mother of a teenager and know how much food they consume. My other son is 7 and eats quite a bit as well. It’s important to have healthy, plentiful snacks in my house at all times.
