Grocery Tip #6 - Use Your Crockpot
Do you have one day in your week where it seems you are on the go the entire day? You get home wiped out and the last thing that you want to do is make dinner. So you throw a few frozen pizzas into the oven or have your spouse pick up Chinese on the way home. Maybe you have several days like this each week!
I solve this problem with a little preplanning and putting something in the crockpot before I leave the house. It is so nice to come home to a prepared dinner after a long day running all over town making sure that my children are well-socialized. Utilizing my crockpot saves on frustration and it saves on the wallet.
Another nice thing about crockpots -- you can make even the toughest, cheapest cut of meat tender and delicious!
I have uploaded some crockpot recipes to the files at our homepage (Yahoo! Groups: ThriftyHomeschooler).
