Resourceful Woman Shares Tips On How To Make 46 Meals for $95

In case you haven’t been feeling inadequate lately, just check out this resourceful blogger: Natalie of “A Turtle’s Life For Me” has gotten down the practice of finding good deals on food and turning the process of making freezer meals for her family of four into an artform.

She details the steps she takes on her blog, cheerfully suggesting that if you’ve got a free afternoon to spend “slaving away” in the kitchen, it’ll be worth it later on when you don’t feel like making dinner from scratch or ordering out again.

Making the most of sales on meat, Natalie walks readers through the process of cooking up chicken or beef with various marinades, mixing it with veggies and saving it all in freezer bags to pull out later. She estimates that when all is said and done, she’s got about 46 meals worth of food stored after four hours of work, and has spent $95.

Check out her blog and see if you’ve got what it takes to follow in her very resourceful footsteps.
