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!!))
With the Holiday's coming up I can't help but wonder What's you favorite Holiday???

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.
Psalm 62:1 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'.

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

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 $4.21 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!
You can add or change just about everything, But it is a starting point!
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce 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) 1 package (1 lb) baby carrots Salt to taste
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
This made 2 Full Meals for us! You can see how full my big crockpot was Enjoy Such a simple yet delicious dinner!
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??? WRONG!!!
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
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.
