$5 Dinner Mom offers ways to save money on groceries

Hello weekend!

If saving money is a priority for you, it’s time to get intentional. Even changing a few habits can help. Let’s talk groceries. The price of just about everything has gone up. You can’t change the price, but you can change your behavior. So who better to get some advice and inspiration than Erin Chase, the $5 dinner mom? When I grow up, I want to be her.

This week, she opened her kitchen to us to share some ways to save money. Sure, you can shop for sales, make grocery lists, use coupons, and even a cashback app, but we were talking about other ways. One of his favorite foods is frozen dinners. And she showed us how to make lots of tacos with just a pound of ground beef.

If you buy infant formula, you already know the big challenge. Store shelves are quite sparse. This week, I spoke with a mom who reached out to family and friends across the country to help find formula for her six-week-old baby. Manufacturers are trying to replenish, but it seems to be slow. I spoke with a pediatrician about his do’s and don’ts for managing the shortage.

Air fryers have been the hot kitchen appliance for quite a while now, literally. Well, if you bought one from Best Buy, there’s a recall to be aware of. The retailer recalled about 770,000 Insignia air fryers because they could overheat and start a fire. Dozens of incidents have been reported. The recall affects Insignia Digital Air fryers, Insignia Analog Air fryers and Insignia Digital Air Fryer ovens sold between November 2018 and February of this year. You can bring them back to the store.
