The house is so quiet, it's unnerving. Today is the first day of school for my DD she starts 11th grade. Already she is making plans for Prom and homecoming..sheesh I'm just not ready for prom yet...
I plan on taking loads of pics, I had no time this morning, she changed her outfit no less than 5 times and almost missed the bus...
It's been a while since I posted, life has been interfering in the fun...my friend Kristi has done an amazing job keeping the blog going.
Here's what I've been up to and hoping you will join me on here and share.
I've been very organized on getting my meals menu done for the week, with shopping list.
I've found I've reduced my weekly bill from 128.00 to $35.00 weekly..
Isn't that amazing?
I'm sure you are wondering how???
I'm the world worst impulse shopper, those items by the register have put there with me in mind....
I've been using this wonderful site call ziplist.com, I'm able to search for recipes, do my list, send it to my phone and shop.
I've also been doing the grocery game, where I found out what grocery store in my area is having a sale and what coupon can I use to save..
This is how I've been able to shave off 70% of my bill..
Here's ab example of my menu for the week..
Brown Rice with Lentil beans w/smokedwood bacon. Garlic chicken
Mexican rice with salsa/avocado/ground beef (using brown rice from Monday)
Lentil beans leftover
Bourbon Chicken with Pasta
Ground Beef Mexican rice left over
After using coupons for my list my grocery bill was a whopping $19.89 for the week for 4 people...
Yes it does work, I have not purchased anything this week that was not part of my list..
Leave me a comment and let me know what tips n trick you use to save on groceries?
