If you are the one that has been designated to prepare Thanksgiving dinner, you will want to know about this time saving tip.
One of the best ways to streamline Thanksgiving dinner preparations and save yourself some time is taking advantage of any recipes that can be made in slow cookers.
The small kitchen appliance is useful in so many ways. They keep dishes warm, free-up valuable stove and oven space for those dishes that cannot be cooked ahead of time or in a slow cooker and they help keep the house from getting too hot.
I also use a roaster to cook our turkey for these same reasons. I can use the oven to bake all kinds of delicious desserts without worrying about how to cook everything using just my oven.
Here are some Top Thanksgiving Slow Cooker Dishes:
It is possible to pull off a Thanksgiving feast while on a budget.
You know there will be great sales on turkeys, but what about the
side dishes? The key to saving money on your side dishes is to do
what the participants of the first Thanksgiving did: cook them from
scratch using whole ingredients. A side benefit is they may just be

I woke up this morning and the air was brisk which meant it was time to put some of my favorite frugal fall recipes to good work once again.
One of the first things I did when the seasons began to change from late night grilling outdoors to shorter days filled with the hustle and bustle, was to turn my attention to my favorite frugal fall recipes that I had tucked away during the warm summer months.
With fall upon us, I am looking forward to putting my favorite kitchen tool, the slow cooker, to good use once again.
I love summer grilling, but it can be more expensive to cook dinner that way versus throwing a slow cooker meal together. I find that I'm able to stretch our meats further when I am making meals in my slow cooker.
I have a few favorite frugal fall recipes to share with you:
Are you heading to Kroger this week? Here are six ways to maximize your savings:
1. Compare Coupons
Because many Kroger regions this year decided to stop doubling coupons, you want to make sure you grab the best coupon before heading to the store. Checking a coupon database will help you select the best coupon to use.
2. Take Advantage of Store Promotions
Kroger is known for their Mega sale promotions. A Mega promotion allows you to save a specific amount of money when you buy participating products. When you see that Kroger is having a Mega event, make sure to stock up on your favorite products that are included. Because you can use coupons in addition to the promotional discount, you'll maximize your savings.
They made it seem so easy on the TLC show Extreme Couponing. What you didn't see were stores bending over backwards to let those shoppers break all the store's couponing policies, just for the opportunity to be featured on the show.

Everything in moderation, right? That includes using your resources wisely. Resources being both your money and your time. Here are five reasons why extreme couponing is wrong and you'll never see me doing it. Besides the fact that I can't push a full cart of groceries.
