Monthly Meal Planning

As part of my "Thrifty shopping" I have been trying to stockpile items that I frequently use, when they are on sale, so that in the end I am saving money and time (by not having to run to the store because I don't have cream of chicken soup) So starting in February I will be planning my meals out for a month at a time. I based my first months meals on simple things that my family already likes! I made a spreadsheet with separate worksheets, which are, 1. a calendar with the meals, 2. a page of recipes and ingredients, and 3. a running list of ingredients I need to purchase for the month. Under each day of the month I put what meat the recipe calls for so that I know what to pull out of the freezer and also so I could see how many pounds of each meat I would need for the entire month! I also left one day a week for left overs or eating out... or if something came up during the week and I didn't get dinner made it can be moved to that night! I posted a snapshot of my calendar for you to see but if you would like a copy of the file to use for yourself leave me a comment with your email address and I will send it to you!!

So this month is planned and I have already planned what groceries need to be bought on pay day.... I will keep you all updated as to how my plan works out!!

These make me smile

Every Month "A Little Birdie told me" puts out these super cute desktop calendar background and I just love them!!! Check out February's here!!

SNOW? In Virginia??

That's right can you believe we actually had, not just snow, but a foot of snow here in South Eastern VA? Crazy Right?! Well we spent the whole weekend having a blast an enjoying it! I managed to snap some pictures yesterday one the sun came out! I will try to get them up this week!

So for the last few weeks I have been mixing between personal blogging and blogging about coupons and freebies and such. Is there anything you all would particularly like to see? Deals on specific things or stores?? Do you have a question? Let me know in the comments section and I will post about your topic or question this week!!!
