    Buy large quantities of meat on sale and then make up dinners to freeze. Saves money and time. I do once a month cooking and will spend 4-5 hours cooking a whole month's worth of dinners for my family. Then the biggest decision I have to make is what to get out of the freezer the night before.

I also put menu plans together and we plan when we will eat out. This way eating out is a treat that we enjoy and look forward to instead of a last minute we have nothing to eat, guess we have to eat out moment.

    I saved pennies for about 2 or 3 years - $30.00 worth. The coin machine offered an Amazon coupon and I got a Bogart DVD collection set. emoticon I've started over with the pennies. A penny a point is a good idea - hadn't thought of that.
