No-Spend Month:  Menu


I’ll add recipes and links later, but I wanted to post our menu for this month.  I make a lot of things from scratch, have access to fresh eggs, and use a lot of fresh veggies from our garden, so I am able to make things for little to no money that you might have to spend more on.

About Leslie

I am a mother of four, who loves organization but is dealt a new hand of chaos each day. I love Jesus and each of my unique children. I strive to foster these relationships and bring a little organization to our chaotic home. I want to be a better blogger, but, truthfully, this is just not as high on my priority list as the aforementioned relationships or the state of our home.
