Menu Plan Monday 4/2/12

I had to do some improvisation on last week’s menu. Often, things pop up that you need to be flexible enough to handle. Time is not a friend of that meat in your refrigerator. Over the weekend, I completely went off the plan, and spent the rest of the weekend catching up or *gasp* eating …

Cloth diapering… Uh, I’m not sure about that.

I found this guest post on the Krazy Coupon Lady written by someone in Ocean City, MD, so I knew I had to feature it today. While I’m all about saving money when I can, I’m not so sure about cloth diapers. Some things are just not worth it. Maybe if I was a stay …

I studied in the car on the way to an exam …

You can save a lot of money by shopping sales with store cards and matching them with coupons from newspapers or the store’s website. There are a lot of match up blogs that I like, and these are a few of them for drug store sales. CVS CVS Coupon matchups courtesy of Couponingfor4.net Rite Aid …

Savings Saturday

Saturday is the day I do my shopping. My sale papers start trickling in on Wednesdays, and that’s when I make my meal plan for the next week. Now that the old car is mortally wounded and we need to start looking for a new one, our budget is going to be super tight! I …
