Menu Plan Monday 6/29

by Gina on June 29, 2009

For the first time in a LOOONG time, Bryan and I did not even go grocery shopping this weekend…okay we did pick up some fresh fruit and bread, milk, and eggs, BUT that is not our normal routine. Typically we do a pretty extensive grocery shopping trip every week. Since joining Costco, we have been able to pick up fresh fruit weekly and get meat once every two weeks. All of the other items I have either been able to stockpile, or I pick up non-perishables on my weekly pharmacy shopping trips and pay with Extra Bucks, Register Rewards, etc. This system has been working out well so far, but we have lots of room for improvement. Enough rambling, on to Menu Plan Monday!!!

Monday – Chicken Fried Rice
Tuesday – Teriyake Salmon
Wednesday – Chicken Parmesan
Thursday – Leftovers
Friday – Shrimp Cocktail
Saturday – Burgers on the grill
Sunday – TBD!

Target 6/28/09

by Gina on June 28, 2009

Cost: $0.85!

I was looking through an old insert from April and noticed that I had not yet used the $2 off any Pace Specialty Salsa coupons that matched up so well with Target’s Temporary Price Cut this month! Since I had to run out that way anyway, I brought the 6 coupons with me that I found and was able to get another 6 jars of salsa for $0.09 a piece!!! The cashier was amazed!

Friday Garden Update

June 26, 2009

While letting the dogs out this evening after work I peeped around the garden to see what was growing. I picked another zucchini that had ripened, and I noticed how much more is starting to grow! We have 4 baby tomatoes starting to form, a couple canteloupes, a yellow squash, and cucumbers all coming along […]

Mail Call!

I was so excited when I opened my mailbox today and found the two FREE meal certificates from KFC that they had promised to send. Honestly, I thought I would never see them, but alas they came through! This will make a nice meal between 7/20 and 8/3!

CVS 6/23

June 24, 2009

Total: $3.10 To my surprise I received a $10 off a $30 purchase coupon on one of my cards during my shopping trip on Sun 6/21. The kicker is that it was only good thru 6/24. Since the number of coupons like this CVS has been giving has almost dwindled to a halt I decided […]
