My friend, Erin Chase's new book: The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook comes out this December 22, and I'm so excited.

This book has 200 recipes that Erin made for her family of 4, all for $5 and UNDER.


She has stove top, oven, and even slow cooker meals. The ingredients are easy to come by, and Erin teaches readers how to best utilize store circulars and fliers and which coupons are worth saving and clipping. She also gives insider secrets on how to find the best coupons online and which stores will double the discounts.

This is such a valuable resource, and quite frugally priced! The book comes out this December 22, and will be in bookstores everywhere, although you can pre-order now on Since Amazon has been so on-the-ball this year with shipping, I'd venture to guess you could pre-order and have the book delivered directly to your recipient in time for Christmas on the 25th, if you are still looking for last-minute gifts.

This book is also a FABULOUS New Year's Resolution gift, since many of us right now are thinking of trimming costs this upcoming New Year. There's no easier way to trim your budget than to meal plan and shop frugally.


Erin and her publisher, St. Martin's Press, have generously agreed to give away THREE of her brand new books to my readers. This contest is open to anyone in the US and Canada (yay, Canadians!)

To enter, please let Erin and I know what your favorite "cheap" dinner is---if you have a favorite post or recipe, it's fine to link to it!

Please enter to win only once, but you can gain additional entries by tweeting, facebooking, or blogging about this giveaway.

Please leave a valid email address in your comment, or make sure your Blogger ID has your current email address (DOT COM code is fine). I will delete all comments after the contest has run it's course, and I am not sharing your email addresses with St. Martin's Press, or anyone else. I promise.

I will pick a winner from the Random Number Generator thingy on January 1, 2010, 5pm.

good luck!
