Weekly Groceries

If you missed my Walgreens Trip, see it here!
I got lots for only $6.21

This picture however cost me
around $50. (not sure that's real great!!)

I spent $15. at Meijer and
$35. at Aldi
Also spent aprox. $6. for Milk

I am planning on taking December off from grocery shopping!
So I'm trying to think of everything I need to stock
up on in the next few weeks in order to realistically take
the month off. ( I have 2 weeks left to stock)
This week I got plenty of mac & cheese, tomato sauce,
10# of potatoes, syrup, brown sugar, carrots, and more!

I imagine I'll still have to go to CVS for milk but
I'm hoping that's it! I'm even going to try my hand in making my own bread (using this recipe Sarah found)! look out!!!
I think using my stock be a fun challenge (might not even be a challenge!)
and I'll be able to use the usual $200. grocery budget
for Christmas Gifts! It's a WIN/WIN!!!

I'll keep you updated in December how it goes!
Feel free to join in if your pantry is bursting (like mine) and
you want to free your schedule even more for more
fun Holiday baking!!

All that said...
I reserve the right to shop if a spectacular
deal week does come up!!! ((GRIN!!

Puzzles, Puzzles, Puzzles...

Wordful Wednesday!

It seems My little boy became
a puzzle lover overnight!!
It's the first thing he does in the morning
and the last thing he's doing before bed.

He calls them Easy Peasy
(((No idea where he came up with that!!!)))

I hadn't really even got the puzzles out for him yet.

Big mistake as it turns out...
He sat and did this puzzle thing for 3 hours on Sunday
Seriously 3 hours and only quit because it was bedtime.

I'm kicking myself for not introducing puzzles to him
a least a year ago!!!

Anyway he's having fun with them now!
None of my other 3 kids ever loved puzzles this much...

So How about you, Do you have any kids

In God we Find Rest...
1 Kings 5:4
But now the Lord my God has given me rest on every side, and there is no adversary or disaster.

My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.

Jeremiah 6:16
This is what the Lord says:
"Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, 'We will not walk in it'.
What has God been teaching you lately.

Walgreens $6.21 Trip!!!!

Does this look like $6.21 to you?!?!?!

Be sure to get to Walgreens this week!!!!

I did 4 transactions.

1st trans...
Buy 1 Contour Monitor for $14.99
and 1 Filler (I used salt for .50)
-use meter coupon (up to $30.) from 10/25 RedPlum
BoldPay .50 cents and
get a $5. RR back
(you might not need the filler, I just don't like
my total to be 0)

2nd trans
Do this exact same trans. again.
The Meter coupons are from 10/25 RedPlum
Now you should have 2-$5. RR and you've paid
aprox. $1.00

3rd trans.
(if you need cold medicine)
buy 3 Tylenol cold
and 1 Sudafed PE
See MSM's Deal Idea here complete
with coupon links for the meds
I Used the 2-$5. RR that I earned in the first 2 trans.
to use the RR you will need 2 fillers (I used pudding)
This trans. cost me
You should get a $10. RR back from this trans.

4th Trans.
Just buy whatever you need...
pudding 4/$1. , Spices 2/$1.,
and Kleenex big 200 ct. boxes @ $1.09 (use .50/3 MQ)
are few good deals I see!!

pay with the $10. RR
My total was $1.00

All Totaled I spent
$6.21 for everything in picture!!!
I know I've let a lot of deals at Walgreens slip by
me lately, but this felt like old times!!!

When shopping at Walgreens remember these hints
1. a RR counts as a MQ -- you can't have more MQ than
you have products. This is why a filler is sometimes needed

2. Be sure to use the 7 day coupons.
These are the coupons found in the weekly flyer.

3. You can stack MQ, 7 day, and Walgreens Monthly coupons

4. If you can, always give the MQ first.

5. I always check out at the cosmetics counter when I have multiple transactions. I feel less rushed there, I'm not holding up the line, and they're always sooo helpful!

Beef Stew Crockpot Recipe

You can add or change just about everything, But
it is a starting point!

1 can tomato soup + 1 can water
1/2 cup sugar (optional- I use a little extra!)
1 lb - beef stew meat
6-7 potatoes (med) -cleaned and cut in pieces (I don't peel)

Dump all sauces & water in crockpot and stir in sugar.
Dump everything else in and stir a little

Cook high 4-5 hours
Low approx. 8 hours

Wholesale Keychain Review and Giveaway

I was offered the opportunity by Wholesale Keychain
to review their Keychains. I was allowed to choose 3!

So I visited their site thinking this would be easy. I'd just
pick 3 simple keychains. I mean how many different choices
could there be. And I'm sure they're just regular keychains that
just say something... Right???

I was totally amazed at the selection and uniqueness they had.
And to boot, the prices were unbelievable for any keychain, let alone
for how unique and functionable they were!
Here's what I chose...

Yep, These are keychains and they actually have FUNCTION!!!
I was totally thrilled when I received them!!

First I loved their
Digital Photo Keychains
You can actually save up to 72 photos on this keychain.
I love being able to have pictures with me where ever I go!
It's really simple to use. Comes with the USB cable
to put on the pictures and it has a rechargeable battery built in
that you can just charge with your computer.
This keychain is only $14.99

((if you use promo code dailyessenti
you will also get 10% off! ends Nov 30))

Next I spotted the
USB Flash Drive Keychain
It is a 1 GB Flash Drive! That's a pretty big memory.
I downloaded a bunch of pictures and I
believe I used 3% of its space!

I'd be perfect if you need to take files back
and forth from work.
You won't lose it... unless you lose
your keys of course!!!
It's only $9.99

Last I searched around...
They have so many choices like Disney Keychains, Bottle Openers, Game Keychains, Knife Keychains, and so many more!

But I decided to go with the Astros Keychain for Hubby!
He loves the Astros (even when they stink)
It was great quality and he snatched it up very quickly when it came!

Make sure you check out all their keychains here!
They would make such great Christmas Gifts for
those on your list that are hard to buy for.

And if you make any order don't forget to
use promo code
for an additional 10% off!!!
