What family isn't looking to save money this holiday season? If you've begun pricing the ingredients for your favorite holiday recipes, you might be suffering a bit of sticker shock. Luckily, there are ways to create familiar dishes with a few budget-friendly shortcuts!
Old Tradition: Shop 'Til You Drop
New Twist: You have a budget and you're ready to hit the supermarket and favorite stores. For the best deals, remember to shop early. Plan your holiday meals weeks ahead and store up on non-perishable items at the grocery store. Canned vegetables, such as Libby's, are affordable, convenience, and taste great in green bean casseroles, corn pudding, and all your holiday favorites!
Libby's and mom of 7 Hannah Keeley teamed up to bring us some delicious dishes for you next holiday get-together. Check out our favorite:
