Spend Less for Convenience Meals

With the new year approaching, it's good to evaluate where you are spending your money and look for ways to save. If you find you eat fast food regularly because you don't have time to cook, try to find some TV dinners that you like and keep them stocked in the freezer. The quality of TV dinners has improved remarkably since they became popular in the fifties. They tend to cost half what a meal at a fast food restaurant and can be even cheaper if you use a coupon. If you have the time, an even better approach is to spend a weekend in your kitchen making meals for your freezer.

Invest in a slow-cooker, you throw everything into it in the morning and it does the cooking for you. You won't have to stop for fast food on the way home because a nice, hot meal is already waiting for you! The best part is, that you can buy cheaper cuts of meat that will be more tender with the slow, all day, cooking.
