Low Cost Frugal Meal Ideas

Do you ever have those months were you just feel like money is flying out the window? This month seems like I was spending money right and left as I've been putting money towards 2 kids getting new glasses, orthodontist bills, birthdays, doctor visits and normal everyday needs.

I feel like my credit card was on fire so I'm sitting down now to come up with a list of low cost frugal meal ideas that maybe we can just take it easy on the grocery bill this month.
