The Build a Menu Anniversary Special is here!

Have you “met” the ladies from Build a Menu? We have a special word from them today and we are excited to celebrate with them on their 2nd Anniversary.

Find out more about who they are and what they are all about in the guest post below:

Trying to get dinner on the table for your family and keep your grocery budget under control can be frustrating. Any busy mom can tell you menu planning can be one of the most frustrating jobs we have! Fortunately, there are services such as Build a Menu that can help you plan a menu your family will love. Build A Menu not only provides you with new recipes to choose from each week, each recipe shows the current cost to buy its ingredients at the store, making it super easy to keep a handle on your grocery budget.

BAM helping families

What makes it even better is that you can design your selections around the grocery store where you shop. Choose from different recipe categories based on your family’s individual preferences. You’re not locked in to just one menu, but rather you can mix and match any way you like!

BAM 3 easy steps


In three easy steps you can select the store you like to shop at, pick your recipes and print your customized shopping list. Voila! You’re done menu planning for the week!

Build a Menu has a variety of recipes to choose from for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks and desserts as well. Simply select the store where you want to shop, choose the recipes you want, print out the recipes and shopping list, and you’re ready to go…including the prices for the ingredients that you will be purchasing.

How great is that!?

BAM categories

You can choose recipes from any of these categories to create a menu that’s perfect for you family:

Family Friendly
Trim Healthy Mama
Low Carb
Gluten Free
Low Fat/Sensible Portions

Happy Monday Y’all!


I do hope all your Thanksgiving plans are falling into place.

Today we get a sneak peek at the Molly Green Black Friday – Cyber Monday – Green Tuesday SALE! (It’s a mouthful for sure)

Although I cannot yet spill the beans on the exact nature of the sale price – I can tell you it will be fantastic and that it may have a little something to do with slashing annual membership prices with my gardening shears! 

We are so very thankful for you,  and on that note, we will begin our “knock your socks off” special on Thanksgiving and continue right on through to the brand new  holiday named after – yours truly. . . .

I know! I was just as surprised as you are to hear that the whole world will be celebrating the brand new Molly Green with the upcoming . . . . . GREEN TUESDAY!  Although no one has called yet to officially tell me about this great honor – someone online let it slip that GREEN TUESDAY is all about natural living,  sustainability, with a Green simple lifestyle, so, they might as well have mailed me the invite!

We are loving the new materials, writers and resources for the upcoming launch. January will be over the top exciting, but this . . . . .

a whole holiday called GREEN TUESDAY –  is truly quite an honor.  I’m off to practice my acceptance speech and peel some more potatoes.

See a great Thanksgiving kids craft here

4th of july promo header

…from Molly, Midge & Econobusters

We all know that freedom isn’t free. So, I want to start this message out by thanking all those — past and present — who have sacrificed so much for our future freedoms! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! 

On a slightly different note, learning to be more frugal and cooking better for our families comes at a price too. We always try to keep the costs of our resources affordable, because we care! We’re right there with you in the trenches learning and stretching ourselves every day. We know so many of you are one-income families, or struggling through job-loss, or maybe you’re just trying to keep your head above water since the economy took a dive in the last few years. Molly Green Magazine and was BORN for such a time as this.

Our founders wanted to pass on what they were learning and how it was making a huge difference in their families on many different levels. We have continued that vision to this day and our honest desire is that continues to be a safe community where you will glean information from our team and each other while also sharing your own successes and failures with others who have the same goal — to provide a loving and nurturing home for our kids while also teaching them to “leave the nest” and fly, well-equipped to do the same for their own future family.

As usual, Midge and I have lots of exciting things in the works for Molly Green Magazine and and we’re really looking forward to sharing those with you all in the very near future.
