My Menu Plan for this Week 11/11/19!






Well, the snow has come this morning and I do believe we already have a good 4 inches.  It's very pretty (first snow is always the best). We do have quite a few of our trees that haven't lost their leaves yet.  That's a lot of heavy weight for some of the smaller trees.  Well, there is nothing we can do about it though, just pray that they won't lose any branches.  

Now, I'm not going to think about the snow again, well until we have to shovel!

Here is what I plan to put on the table this week:

Monday                   Chili  (It's in the crockpot now. For the meat I'm using left over hot dog coney island sauce and also the chopped onions from the hot dogs we had yesterday)


Tuesday                  Roast, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn and biscuits.  


Wednesday             Beef stew with the leftover roast (I make it the same as I do hamburger stew)  

Thursday                Chicken Noodle Soup


Friday                   Spaghetti


Saturday                BLT's and hashbrowns (with tomatoes from the garden)


Sunday                  Out to eat


What will be on your dinner table this week?

My Frugal Ways this Past Week 11/10/19!

Winter has come to our Michigan home.  It's just frightful.  I'll tell you the truth the weather is just plan cold most of the time.  We've already dug out the big heavy comforter, the fleece sheets, and the long johns.  Yep, we are old and cold, LOL.  

Now we hear snow is on the way, with an accumulation of 4 to 5 inches Monday night into Tuesday.  Delightful!  We have had snow but this will stick good.  We are ready though if the forecast is right, all the summer lawn furniture is put up, the wood is ready to go for the fireplace, and the snow blower is ready to go. 





Here are the ways we saved this past week:


I made up enough hot chocolate and  Chili mix to last the winter.  

We went to an estate sale hoping to buy this great priced vehicle they had, but the icy roads slowed us down.  We ended up getting  #9 and #10 in the street numbers they handed out.  Everyone wanted that car! Maybe, if we would have left at 3 in the morning we might have had a chance, of course the roads would have been worse. We did feel better after we bought some great deals though:

Bag of screwdrivers for $5.00



A bigger Food Saver than I have now for $5.00.  Man, this thing is powerful!  

Cuisinart  blender/food processor for $15.00

6 regular sized cotton yarn and one big cone of cotton yarn -$2.00 for all!  

TV for daughters room for $50.  I told her Merry Christmas  (I realize now the Christmas present limit will be $50.00 instead of $25.00)!  


I also bought this quilt for $15.00.  It needs to be quilted but I think I can follow what the previous owner started without a problem.  Well, I think I can and that's what is important.  



Basically, she just followed the patterns on the top of the quilt and embroidered it.  Looks so pretty so I hope to finish it out this winter.

I bought some trash bags for a great deal this week.  You can read about that here.

I cleaned out my side of the closet then mailed in the postage free bag to ThredUp.

I also cleared out some toys and gave them to the Veterans Thrift Store.  

My Goals for this Week:

With half days and what may be a snow day, I think most of my time will be watching my sweet grand children.  So, I'm thinking that we will bake cookies, watch movies on T.V. , make a snowman and go sledding if the snow is just right, and then if all else fails take them to the Burger King playground, LOL.

My Grocery Shopping Deal this Week 11/9/19!






I went to Meijer this week and started shopping Halloween clearance.  I bought the kids some Halloween shirts for next year at 90 percent off and some candy that was 70 percent off.  Husband then hid the candy somewhere out in the garage.  Even I don't know where it is (I looked for it one night) ha ha.

Then I was walking down the aisle on the way to the produce section and noticed these garbage bags on clearance.  They were marked down to $1.99 for 70 bags.  I will have to tie them in a knot on top but I think I can handle that.  Garbage bags are extremely high for something you are just going to put in the dump,  so I was so glad to find this deal.  Buying them on sale like this leaves more money to buy actual food!  

What great grocery shopping deal or deals did you get this week?
