Hey Friends! The Christmas season is here again with all the scurrying to buy gifts; the thrill of surprising a loved one on Christmas Day; the anticipation of receiving a specific present; and the special moments that make this time of the year so memorable.

During this time of the year, time and money seem to be elusive creatures. Christmas shopping, special events, and holiday gatherings make it challenging to make decent meals, let alone create a budget-friendly menu.

One of the ways to combat the urge to grab a quick meal while on the run is to pull out your slow cooker. In the morning, as you’re preparing breakfast or packing lunches, take a little time to combine a few ingredients and when dinner time arrives, you’ll have a delicious meal waiting for you.

At Build a Menu you will find a Slow Cooker subcategory in the Dinner section under any of the grocery store options. Come check out our breakfast and lunch recipes as well, and discover how much of a difference menu planning can make in your budget this week. The money you save can be used for other things–like Christmas gifts!
