Make These Easy Cream Cheese And Chicken Taquitos In A Flash!

Inside:  A few simple ingredients make these cream cheese and chicken taquitos the easiest recipe you’ll make all week! Snacks and lunches just got better!

Most Moms’ ears perk up when they hear the works quick, easy, and chicken.  Who doesn’t want another simple (and affordable!) recipe to add to their collection??

That’s why I’m such a huge fan of this cream cheese and chicken taquito recipe.  It’s as easy as making a sandwich would be.  But I can make these ahead of time and put them in the fridge for lunches or snack time.

And, pssst, I’ve frozen these with success, too!  I know “they” say cream cheese doesn’t freeze well, but we’ve had no problems with it.

5 Ways We’ve Saved Money This Week 92

5 Ways We’ve Saved Money This Week 92

In case you aren’t familiar with our story, our family is wading through month number 20 of paying off a big chunk of debt.  We’ve stuck with the plan through thick and thin.

In late July our ratty old paid off van quit on us.  And now my computer died.  It wasn’t even that old!  We have no idea what happened to it (though I suspect the kids…ahem.)

I’m kind of glad all of this is happening now rather than a year ago.  I might have been more tempted to give up then.  Now it just makes me double down on my resolve to be out of debt so we can have a deeper savings account for problems like this!

5 Ways We’ve Saved Money This Week 90

Back to school time is anything but frugal.  You have to fight tooth and nail to find ways to save money this time of year.  Between school fees, supplies, clothing (and I’m just talking about what’s needed for growing reasons, not fashion!), pictures, and sports playing fees (plus the cost of getting into games), a family could go broke!

At this point, we really need to treat this like another Christmas.  It takes months to save the money needed for Christmas gifts and fun.  We should spend our summer saving up for all of these back to school fees, too.

These are the kinds of things that lead to crazy amounts of credit card debt if you aren’t careful!

When I agreed to help build a brand new non-profit PTO from scratch with a few other enthusiastic parents, I had no idea what I was getting myself into!  We’ve been working hard to get everything ready for back to school on a very limited budget.

At least I knew a little about dealing with a budget anyway!

Needless to say, I’m a little fried from all of that busyness, so I apologize for not getting a new 5 Ways post up last week.  I’m glad you didn’t give up on me!
