Package of coleslaw mix (red cabbage, white cabbage and carrot)
Red onion, chopped
Seasoning to taste
Put all the ingredients in the bowl and mix together. The key to this salad, is that you let it sit a few hours in the fridge before you serve it, as it lets the flavours all come together.
So instead of paying 99 cents per 100g in the grocery store make this for not much more and it tastes a whole lot better.....
Coleslaw mix: 99 cents
Onion: 25 cents
Mayo: 50 cents
Total no more than $2.75, probably even less......
We ate ours with fish and baked potatoes and it was really good.......

Today's Money Saving Tip:
Don't buy frozen meals -- If you empty the contents of a frozen dinner onto a plate you will quickly realize that you are getting very little food for what you are paying. Do you realize you are paying $300 a pound for that tiny bit of veggies on the side? If you lead a busy lifestyle, set aside a weekend afternoon to make your own frozen dinners and meals prepared from scratch.
I posted a "special" column in the Orangeville Banner, as it was about a current issue. Normally I will be only posting once a week on a Friday. The subject was a bit controversial for me, but one that I felt needed to be explored.
