I stumbled upon a wonderful blog called Cheap Eats that has an archive of pretty tasty recipes that you can make for less than 3 dollars.
It’s got pretty photos and some great commentary. You’ve probably created similar cheap eats recipes yourself but just haven’t really thought about it.
Next time I whip something up, I’ll try to remember to photograph it. Many of my meals can be made using ingredients from Trader Joe’s, for less than 5 dollars per meal, I’m guessing.

If you can afford more than $3 per meal but still want to get great value, here are some other posts or sites I recommend. I’ll add to this as I find other great sites to share!
- For healthy and organic value, buy Trader Joe’s instead of Amy’s Organic. You could be getting the same thing.
- Check out Poor Girl, Eats Well (aka PGEW) for cheap eats recipes, and a cost breakdown. She’s different because she works to include healthy ingredients, versus resorting to industrially processed solutions.
