You are not alone my friend! I attempted to coupon three times before I finally understood how to do it! That means I tried three times to read up on it, grab coupons, put together deals and failed miserably and walked away from it. I did this three times!!

I am a busy wife, mom to 3 awesome kids and blogger/freelance writer. I don’t have time to slave over a meal so my recipes are centered around being simple, using ingredients I have on hand in my stockpile and it must be kid-approved!
You won’t be making up 100 different crockpot freezer meals that no one wants to eat anyway. I tried so very hard to like these meals but they just didn’t suit my own personal tastes. I am so not super crazy about mushy one-pot wonders.
I can’t promise every recipe will be healthy, after all Easy Peazy Pepperoni Recipes does contain pepperoni and that’s a processed meat. But my Easy Fake Out Guacamole Recipe or Korean Seaweed Soup Recipe are healthy, vegetarian friendly selections that taste great and are super easy to make. (I really would be a vegetarian if I just didn’t like my animal flesh protein so darn much!)
Watergate Salad was a huge hit during the holidays but I make it all year long. And Chicken Dump Soup is my favorite go-to, quick, throw together meal because you literally dump everything into a pot, heat it through and serve.
