Spring 2017 Wish List

For February, I did a no-spend month – I felt I spent way too much money during November, December, and January, and was looking for a good way to practice some financial discipline. It was a great way to remind myself to think through all my purchases and stop impulse buying. (I do love to occasionally make a spontaneous purchase or two, and I love a good deal, but I also want to make sure I’m spending on things that will get a lot of use.) One thing that’s been helping me do that is making a list and sticking to it. I’ve been trying to write down everything I want to buy so I can prioritize purchases and buy things after consideration. So, today I’m sharing a few things from my spring 2017 wish list!

Southwest Casserole Recipe

This southwest-inspired casserole recipe is a huge favorite in our house! It’s really easy to make, only uses one dish, makes good leftovers, and is a tasty way to get some veggies and fiber. We typically make it several times a month, and we haven’t gotten tired of it yet! I love easy meals like this because they come together quickly after work – it makes weeknight cooking much easier.
