Over the next couple of weeks we will be featuring Budget Friendly meals because being on a budget doesnt mean eating rice and beans every night…

Getting out of debt, paying off your student loans, or saving for your next big purchase can be tedious. If you are like me, you make take things a little too far…

Eating on a budget doesnt have to suck!

Here are 15 budget friendly dinners that you can make for your family:

Family Dinner 4: Beef Cakes

This is a smart way to reuse leftover beef or mashed potatoes. A spiced bacon and beef patty rests between two “buns” of mashed potato for a heartier spin on a hamburger.

Every childhood, in my opinion, needs to have a place for sloppy joes, and when you can make them with real food; there is no reason not to.
