Saturday’s Savings

Notice my new blogger background.  I’ve been meaning to do that for sometime now.  What do you think? 


I haven’t clipped my coupons for a while.  Ugh.  Now it’s going to be a chore when I do.  Lucky for us, our pantry is still stocked well enough that I’ve only been buying a few essentials each week for several weeks now.  I noticed that I have a pending 20% discount available at the local grocery store.  I’ve been saving that for a larger grocery order.  I suppose I need to get myself organized so I can determine when is the best time to do that.  I’m also delighted that K’s employment is also running a 10% promotion on all their brands, which is another little push for savings.  I can’t complain.


Looking forward to this week, I should plan some meals.  I’m actually going to be away for a few days, so I’ll need to figure out what I can leave that is easy for K to fend for himself.  Better yet, I should just ask him what he wants.  I’ve been trying to be more deliberate about including more vegetables and sometimes fruit into our meals.  We have a tendency to default to sandwiches when I’m not planning ahead.  We LOVE sandwiches, but it’s just not healthy to eat so many of them. 


I’m planning to make bacon, eggs, and toast for breakfast on Sunday.  I might serve it with a small bowl of berries too.  K has to work, so I want to be sure he is fed before he goes.  It might be more of a brunch type meal. 


Salad is definitely on the menu.  I have some pre-cooked fajita style chicken in the freezer.  I also have a handful of shoestring fries in the freezer.  I’m thinking grilled chicken salads?  YUMMO!


I also have some stir-fry vegetable mix in the freezer.  I made some of it last week with pork and it was very good.  K said he liked it too.  He ate two large plates of it.  I may do that again.


The rest will be up to K.
