Wow, coupons. How thrilling, right? I realize this is really nerdy and boring but I’m all about saving money right now. Fish and I have made a pact to really stick to a firm budget and part of that pact was I agreed to make all our meals. This is a bit of a huge task because we are both home 24/7 so I’m making breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not presenting him with a meal for breakfast and lunch, I ain’t no maid! I am making sure that there is food in the fridge and pantry with which Fish can make a lunch. Thank goodness the man actually likes leftovers.
With all this menu planning and money talk, I have started to use coupons. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I’m getting a little crazy with the coupons. I don’t just go to the store and pick out anything willy nilly. There is a plan and a list, and by God, there are coupons! It gets a little crazy making because every time I’m putting something in my cart I’m thinking that maybe I missed or forgot a coupon for that particular item. I’m learning how to let go.
So how’s about I wrap up this ridiculously dull post with an even duller menu?
Monday – Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes (It was delicious)
Tuesday – Crockpot Italian Herbed Chicken
Wednesday – Spaghetti, Salad, Garlic Bread
Thursday – Red Chili Beef w/ baked tortilla chips
Friday – Italian Beef Sandwiches w/ roasted Cauliflower
Saturday – Rice Salad with Roasted Chicken
Sunday – Haven’t decided!
