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!
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!
