Dining On A Dime Book Giveaway Closed


Save $10,000 a year on food?

Without cutting coupons! Unbelievable?

Read Tawra Jean Kellam and Jill Cooper’s advice in their book:

Dining on a Dime (formerly Not Just Beans) and find out that it really is possible.

Tawra has told her story to millions of listeners and readers on the radio, on the web and in women’s magazines (including Woman’s Day and Woman’s World) and now she’s put her best tips and tricks into a 476 page book. Using these tips and suggestions, Tawra shows how anyone can tighten his or her food budget.

Dining on a Dime is packed with over 1,200 money saving recipes and tips, kids tips and snack ideas, gift baskets, menus, food storage directions, Cleaning Cents and Pretty for Pennies. The recipes are easy to cook with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. To make shopping easy and economical, Tawra has also included a pantry list and a shopping list.

They are having a 50% off sale on all their books and 63% off if you buy all 3. Dining On A Dime has never been on sale for more than 25% off so this is a great deal.

One lucky reader will win this money saving book!

If I could find some "ways to cut down on meat" as the book description says, I'd be thrilled. My DH won't do vegetarian meals, so I try to stretch meat, but it's not easy. The book looks great!

Mary said...

During times like these anything can help. I would love to win this.
