I took my cut up organic chicken that I got cheap from Whole Foods and the BBQ sauce I got for .39 at Smiths and it's cooking nicely in the crockpot. My house smells GOOOOD! (for once :) Is that a tip? I don't know, but the smell is making it so I can think of nothing else. :):) Do you have a tip? a frugal recipe? a great shopping trip? ANYTHING of a frugal nature....Please LINK UP!
