October Menu Plan

It’s that time of the month again! A new month means a new menu! The theme for this month is hearty soups, stews and roasts to keep us warm while we wait to turn on the heat. Oh, and all are budget friendly of course, with the average dinner providing leftovers for lunch! For breakfast,…

Monthly Menu Plans

Last month, I decided to start doing a monthly menu plan on the advice of The Grocery Shrink. (By the way, f you haven’t read her ebook or blog, I encourage you to check it out!) Not only has this been much easier than I originally thought, it has made my days and weeks less…

Menu Plan Monday

Thanks to CVS I was able to put $10 of gas today! But don’t have any other plans for the week… Yvette is already excited to help me cook dinner. Ohhh and tomorrow is her awards ceremony and she’s going to be singing a song with her class. She sang a little bit of it…

Menu Plan Monday – Homely

OMG! How much is gas where you live? Here it hovers over $3.79 – $3.89! We haven’t hit the $4.00 marks yet, but this week, and the past few weeks, I am driving as little as possible. I haven’t even gone to the post office. I’ve already decided I’m only going to take Vetty to…

Coupons galore! Day (lost track) of 60/300!

Today was the first day in a while that I felt well enough to do much of anything. Unfortunately, Charlie Bear didn’t get the memo that we were supposed to be feeling better. He’s been sick for nearly 2 weeks now, running a fever off and on. I swear it’s due to those blasted shots….

Day 18!

I’ve slowed my productivity waaaay down. I have been feeling so run down since my sunburn happened. It’s actually taken a lot out of me. I’ve also decreased my meds quite a bit, and that is making my EDS feel much worse, which doesn’t inspire me to get up and clean and purge. But –…

Day – Get back on track!

My house was destroyed this weekend as 13 little, adorable, children ran through it for two days. I have only half-heartedly tried to get it back in shape, but today I did a good portion of it. I figured we would clean for 45 minutes and thats what we did. Amazing what a little family…

Yard Sale

I know I’ve been slacking on posting. On Sunday, the day of the Yard Sale, I was dumb and forgetful and ended up with a wicked sunburn. The past few days have been spent feeling quite sick and trying to cool my skin. My face blistered all over, but its now beginning to heal a…

Day 9 of 60/300

Today I spent the morning working on my new coupon binder. I totally rehauled it and I love the way it looks! I haven’t had much time to work on it so I put some CSI on this morning and worked for a bit. Afterwards I got to reorganizing the playroom and sorting books. I…
