Need some good cheap eats? I gotcha covered.

This month on Good Cheap Eats has been a little different than normal. Just like here on Life as MOM, I’ve been participating in The Nester’s 31 Days series. Here I’ve been chatting about Kitchen Time Savers. There I’ve been posting about DIY Convenience. That means that I’ve posted far more recipes than I normally do.

Check out all the yummy goodness! My kids had a nice month, I can tell you!

The series has been a labor of love, so if you find something you like, I’d love it if you pinned it or shared it with your peeps. The more people who see the series and are helped by it, well, that makes the effort worth it. You know?

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
