Busy Day

It was a beautiful day out today so the boys and dh got out to play.   I spent a lot of my day catching up on the dreaded laundry that only seems to multiply.  The minute you think you are done, there seems to be another load sitting there mocking me.

I took the time today to make about 60 homemade meatballs for the freezer, made a fresh batch of brownies, and made a roast, with carrots, mashed potatoes, rolls for dinner.   After all of that I must say I am worn out so, I will be heading to bed early tonight, if you consider 10 pm early.

My new goal now is to start really watching our money for grocery spending.   It is difficult sometimes to determine our budget with food and it seems like I live at the grocery store.  Today I did well, and spent $50 and managed to get a cart full.  I have been cutting coupons  and I really watch the local ads and there is some serious money to be saved if you just do a little research.  I will have to keep you updated on my endeavor.  It is hard with figuring out meals, especially when you are in a rut but I plan on sticking with our budget.

  1. I attacked our laundry yesterday too and cleaned out our closet. It seems like I worked on it all day and am still not done.

    I’m finding out how tedious it is to use coupons and find those deals. I mean I know they are out there. I see them but I just got started so I feel like I’m in a little over my head.lol

    I wish I was better at using coupons. I have tons of coupons..just never use them!

    I’m so/so at using coupons, sometimes I’m really good about it, and then I totally forget. One thing I do that really helps is when I get our grocery store ad on Sundays I plan our meals for the week based on what meat, produce etc. is for sale for the week. They also have great recipes in our grocery store ad, so it keeps us out of our making the same meal over again rut.

    I’m lucky, my husband keeps up on the laundry. I do the rest. As far as the groceries go, I am diligent about checking the ads for the local supermarkets I frequent to see which meats are on sale. If it’s a cut that I use regularly, I’ll load up with a few packages and save bunches.

    For instance, every 2 months or so, boneless chicken breasts are 1.99 a pound for the 5 pound family packs, when they’re normally 3.49. That’s a basic for me, so I’ll get 10-15 pounds, then foodsaver into smaller packages.
