Ok, so we all know it's coming, right? The forecast says rain beginning today (Friday) and ending Monday. They are predicting 5-8 inches of rain, hail, and possibly tornadoes. So, how are you going to spend your weekend?
This morning I ran to town to do all of my errands so I don't have to get out again until this is over. I'll be honest, I have every intention of sitting down, reading my magazines that I never have a chance to open, and then taking a long, well-deserved nap! After that, well, that's when the work begins again.
I have done a quick inventory of my freezer and pantry. In the freezer I have flounder, crab meat, and chicken breast strips. I am going to create next week's menu around these items and extras that are in the pantry. I am already planning on Chicken Cacciatore. I will have to look around and see what I want to do with the flounder and crab meat. I have lots of frozen veggies that will fill out the rest of the menu.
Just so you know...my grocery budget for this month was $149! That is really great considering I really did not do much with coupons. My savings for the month was only 30%. This just goes to show you that you can still feed your family well on a budget even if you don't have time to devote to coupons.
Next month I am planning on getting back to the coupons and see how much I can save!
The next blog...MONTHLY PLANNING!
