Homemade Taco Seasoning (Healthier & Tastier!)

Here is a recipe for homemade taco seasoning to use .


Ever since making big changes to eat mainly Paleo friendly foods, I have gotten really good at making a point to look at the ingredient listed on any prepackaged items I’m contemplating purchasing.

Coupon Class in the future

I am planning a couponing class for the future.  Most likely early November. A friend had asked when my next one would be and that she wanted to come.   So I posted on Facebook and so far it looks like I have 4 people so far coming. I love to help people save money.  I am thinking about some new ideas for the class.
