I hit up the mall today to pick up a few freebies:

Perfume from Victoria Secret (Store price $14, with my coupon = FREE)
Body Wash from Bath and Body Works (Store price $5, with my coupon = FREE)
All About Eyes (eye cream) from Clinique (Store price $31, with my coupon = FREE)
That's $50 in FREE products!

*If you are not on e-mail lists for stores, you are missing out!

Our Weekly Menu:


Cereal, banana muffins, orange juice, special k bars, and oatmeal - all of this is from our "stockpile"
(Ben made a dozen banana muffins last weekend and froze them, so we heat them up whenever we want one for breakfast)


Sandwiches: turkey, grilled cheese, or salami
Granola bars
Snack packs
Fruit: apples, bananas, or strawberries
Goldfish or pringles


Sunday- pizza (ingredients from stockpile)
Monday- Ranch pork chops, mashed potatoes, green beans (all from stockpile)
Tuesday- Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans or broccoli (meatloaf is from stockpile, veggies are leftovers from Monday)
Wednesday- Turkey Chicken tacos (Ground chicken bought this week, taco kit from stockpile)
Thursday- Pasta and meatballs, garlic bread, salad (Salad bought this week, pasta, meatballs, and garlic bread from stockpile)
Friday- Breakfast: pancakes and scrambled eggs (eggs bought this week, pancakes from stockpile)

I use the term "stockpile" very loosely because I feel like that throws me into the category of the extreme couponers that have rooms and rooms full of stuff.  All of our food is in our pantry, our frig/freeze, and our chest freezer in the garage.  We buy groceries when they are on sale (with our coupons) and that helps us plan our menus further out.

Dinner tonight: Ranch pork chop, mash potatoes, and green beans

I was getting dressed for my doctor's appointment today, when I looked over to see this:

Happy Monday!
