You know the drill, I give you some freebies, talk about my weekly menu and shopping trips, and then a project. Sadly, this week I have no project to show you since I'm getting back into the swing of things from Vegas, so I promise next week to have one.
Head and Shoulders
John Frieda Root Awakening
Kashi cereal or granola bar
Home Made Simple book (get this- TONS of coupons!!)
This week's menu: (remember, those with a * next to them is a new recipe)
Monday: Cheesy Mac & Beef *
Tuesday: Chipotle Chicken *
Wednesday: Stuffed Shells
Thursday: Beef Tips and Twice Baked Potatoes with Green Beans
Friday: Chicken Stew
Sunday: Pork Loin in Crock Pot, and some kind of new potato I've not decided.
I also don't have a new recipe that I tried last week since we ate the rations I had on hand so I'm missing that component too.
What I can talk about is my couponing. I've been doing VERY well with Olivia's school supplies and I think I have gotten all but the Lysol wipes (which I'm waiting for a good sale to use my coupon on) for under $20. NOT BAD at all. The most expensive item I've gotten was $1.88 so I'm kind of excited about that. I also stocked up on pens, pencils, etc that I got for free for future years' use since she didn't need pens this year. I also did my biweekly Target shopping and I only spent $52 on almost $100 worth of stuff, so I saved about half. I had my brother with me and though he was a bit mortified seeing me with a huge stack of coupons, he shut up when he realized how much I saved AND scored him free deodorant and razors.
What recipes are you trying this week? I need some ideas for future weeks. Any ideas on the kind of project you want to see? I have a few ideas thanks to Pinterest, but other than that... I'm kind of feeling uncrafty. Which isn't a good thing considering the massive amount of craft supplies I have.
Come back tomorrow so I can tell you about my 5K. Oh yes, it's amazing.
