A great way to save money and get some recipe ideas is to sign up for one of the Betty Crocker or Pillsbury newsletters. They will send you recipes and coupons to give you some ideas on meals for your family. I know it makes it easier for me to plan my shopping trips to have meal ideas along with coupons for the ingredients. I'm going to put a few links here, so be sure to go sign up to get the newsletters coming! Most of them will mail you a coupon book for joining too!
