If there is one thing I’ve learned with couponing it’s how to make a meal out of the random things I have on hand. This time of year, fresh produce is harder to come by.  If you went a little overboard stocking up on something, you may find that this is the perfect time for getting creative and using up what’s in your freezer and pantry.

A little bit of creativity can turn a handful of seemingly random ingredients into a budget-friendly meal!
