30 Frugal Recipes for the Holidays


Throwing a party this holiday season or just want to spruce up holiday dinner for the family?

It doesn’t have to break the bank.  A couple years ago I threw together a last minute Easter celebration using items that I found in my stockpile.  It wasn’t overly fancy but it definitely fit the requirements for a holiday meal since it had some of our favorites.

Wanting something a little fancier for this holiday I have been searching the internet and have rounded up some great frugal recipes for you.  They cover the whole meal from appetizers to dessert.  So check them out below and maybe you will find a new frugal favorite.
