I was so happy with the sale ads this week! My purchases were reminiscent of what I used get for my $50 when I started this blog. I was able to get A LOT of produce and stay at about $55 after tax. I didn't even really use many coupons. Maybe $10 worth or so. This is the picture from my trip to Hy Vee. The picture from my trip to Price Chopper turned out horrendously blurry, so we'll just forget about that.
It's been a rough year for us, in some ways, and a very blessed one in others. I have a lot spinning in my head right now about how we're going to move forwarded financially and with a renewed commitment to savings. I'll be updating in the next few days about all of those ideas.
In the meantime, here is our meal plan for the week,
Saturday - cereal / leftover spin dip macaroni and cheese / chili, guacamole and brown butter brownies
Sunday - 100% whole wheat cinnamon toast / cheesy vegetable chowder (a double batch for the freezer!) / my mom's chicken and rice
Monday - bagels and cream cheese / brown bag lunches / chicken broccoli cheddar braid
Tuesday - cereal and fruit / brown bag lunches / egg in the hole
Wednesday - 100% whole wheat cinnamon toast / brown bag lunches / tortellini soup
Thursday - cereal /brown bag lunches / cheesy vegetable chowder from the freezer
Friday -100% whole wheat cinnamon toast / brown bag lunches / dinner at ballet
For snacks, we'll be eating cinnamon sugar pretzels, bagels and cream cheese, pumpkin applesauce, veggies and dip, crackers and fresh fruit.
