With grocery costs soaring, it's more important than ever to keep a tight rein on the grocery budget. But do you know how much your favorite recipes cost you? With this spreadsheet, you will. I am changing my monthly menu plans to include three or more meals per week that are even more frugal. This will help me know for sure that I'm knocking dollars off the weekly budget with my new plan.
The spreadsheet is made in Excel and is fairly basic - I have no idea how to use Excel, but I was able to easily input a few ingredients and try calculating a simple recipe in just a few minutes. I found it online while I was browsing through blogs for recipes. The author is asking one dollar for the spreadsheet, and emails it to you after receiving your payment. I felt comfortable risking a dollar on it, so I decided to give it a try. I don't have any relationship to the author other than as a customer so I can only say that it seems like a pretty good deal to me so far!
