Week in Review ( Week 4 )

I made 3 dozen muffins for the freezer. I used blueberries from the freezer and a strawberries that were on the way out from the fridge.  I used a basic muffin mix that allows for lots of variation.  Recipe coming soon.

I made a double batch of taco meat, and mac and cheese.  We ate one for dinner and put the other in the freezer. I also made sloppy joes and meatloaf for the freezer.

I gave my mom a shelf we had stuck in our garage and weren’t using.  It fits perfectly in her laundry room. In exchange she gave me a book she had finished along with some pie crust she had leftover from the holidays.

I was also gifted a tea kettle by my mom.  My old one didn’t have a flat bottom and couldn’t be used on my glass top stove.  I mentioned it to my mom and she had an extra.

We were able to get gas for .99 per gallon using grocery store points.  Whoop!


A cup of coffee and a good book is a great way to get some rest.

I finished reading 3 books.  All the books had been given to me.  Lot’s of time spent resting and trying to feel better.

I got 2 94 oz bottles of organic apple cider for $1.48.  The kids love it.

I went to the grocery store this morning and found English muffins for .50 a dozen!  They had a sell by date of today so I popped 4 dozen into my freezer.  We like to make egg sandwiches on the weekends.

I picked up 10 pounds of chicken breast at $1.69 a pound which is a fantastic price for my area.  In addition I purchased 4 8 ounce bags of shredded cheese that were on sale for $1.77 each.  It was a limit of 4 so I will go back another day and get more.  They all went into the freezer.   I saved using $6.40 in coupons.  I will also earn $1 back from Checkout 51 and a little from Saving Star too.

Tonight we are having a pizza picnic using dough and cheese from the freezer.  I will add some sautéed peppers and onions that need to be used up.  We will watch a movie we already own.  My little one and I are also making some Rice Krispy treats using up a box that’s been hanging around since Christmas.  Yum! I think that is good way to spend a Friday night!

How did you save this week? Have a great weekend!
