7 Cheap Crockpot Meals are great when you have no money and no time! Yet they are all fabulously delicious, filling and wholesome!
Crockpots (or Slow Cookers, if you prefer) are a fantastic time saver for a busy family. Throw the ingredients in the crockpot at the beginning of the day and when you return home at the end of the day, the house smells wonderful, and dinner is ready!
Last week I shared 10 Cheap Soups and this week it is 7 Cheap Crockpot Meals. Do you notice a theme? A lot of people are going through tough times right now.
I, too, lost my full time job and we will have to tighten our belts until I find another job. So I understand how challenging it can be to plan meals when you are a budget.
As a result, I’m sharing some of my favorite Crock Pot recipes, as well as some ideas of how to use leftovers in other recipes so you can get multiple meals from what you cook in the Slow Cooker.

Recipes You Can Make With Leftovers from CrockPot Meals
The great things about slow cooking the chicken or Chuck Roast is that you can use the stock from it to make a soup to stretch your dollars more by getting more meals out of the chuck roast or chicken.
Whether you make a soup, or casserole, or salad, you are getting more meals from one chuck roast or one roast chicken.
There you have 7 budget friendly Crock Pot Recipes and 6 recipes you can make from leftovers. Do you have any favorites? Which one are you going to try first?
I think I will start with the roast chicken and then make the Chicken Tetrazzini, or maybe I’ll start with the Chuck Roast and then make the Beef Vegetable and Barley Soup! Decisions, Decisions.
