2 - Some Maybelline products in the cosmetics aisle for $1. I found Forever Metallics metal-shine lip color. It's a fat pencil with lipstick coverage and lip gloss shine. My local store had several wearable colors. I love these lip color pencils and was super happy about this find.

Delicious Frugal Meal

This Lentil and Brown Rice Casserole is meatless, cheap, and delicious. I used about half the cheese called for in the recipe and it was still yummy. My whole family loved it, including my carnivore husband and my picky eater son. My carnivore son rolled it in a wheat tortilla and declared it 'fantastic, Mom'.

Thanks, Erin, at $5 Dinners for the fabulous recipe that will definitely be repeated at our house. If you haven't visited Erin's blog, you should. She has a lot of great meal ideas.
