We all need tips to save some $$$!
She Works Hard For The Money (SWH4T$) Hostesses:
The point of this blog hop is to give all of us hard working women some ideas on how to save money! I have said this over and over in a lot of my blog posts but I will repeat - MEAL PLANNING is the key to saving money!
A little report for ya - as of January 29th Jeremy and I have only eaten out 1 time!! THAT IS HUGE for us! We have meal planned for 3 weeks and we saving money. I have to admit that I do flinch a little at the grocery store when I see the bill but in the long run I know we are doing better for our check book!
On top of meal planning I made a goal for us for the month of February to save EVERY SINGLE reciept of EVERY SINGLE transaction we have. I want to write everything out on a calendar day by day and really take a close look at where our money is going. So far we have been successful at this task. More to come on that later.
With out further ado - another new recipe from Weight Watchers!

1 c fat-free ricotta cheese
4 scallions, chopped
1/2 c crumbled reduced fat feta cheese

Repeat with 3 more sheets of phyllo, placing corners at different angles and lightly spraying each sheet with nonstick spray. Fold edges of phyllo in to form 1 1/2 inch high rim.
4 - Spread spinach mixture over phyllo. Lightly spray 1 of remaining sheets of phyllo with nonstick spray; crumple loosely and palce on top of filling. Repeat with remaining 5 sheets of phyllo. bake until filling is heated through and phyllo is golden, andbout 30 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
Per Serving (1/6 slice of pie) = 5 PointsPlus Value
For our dinner we paired one slice of Spanakopita with a small pork chop. Very filling meal for less than 8 PointsPlus!
