I was introduced to Leslie Sansone walking DVDs right after I joined SparkPeople. I find that she is entertaining, and a 2-mile walk flys by! I have to credit a good portion of my success in sticking with the exercise to these workouts.
The DVDs are reasonably priced and most come with the equipment you need ( a stretchy band, a stretchy workout belt, etc.)
I love these easy roasted chickens. For $5-8 dollars I can make several different meals. (1) Eating the leg&thigh portion right away w/some sides. (2) Making bowls of chicken noodle soup (usually freezing half for later in the month) with the carcass and some of the breast meat. (3) The remaining
chicken meat I can toss w/some BBQ sauce and have "pulled BBQ chicken" buns. Or chicken soft tacos w/some taco seasoning. Or chicken to top a salad. You get the point... I used to roast my own chicken but for another dollar or two I can save an hour of cooking....
I keep canned chicken in pantry for emergencies. I drain the broth from can into a jar that I keep in the freezer before using the chicken. When a recipe calls for chicken broth, I have some waiting in the freezer without purchasing more containers of chicken broth.
