August Grocery Budget $300


So far this month I have been to Weis 2 times and spent $43.34 and saved $103.81. I have $14 in Dollar Rewards left to spend. I took full advantage of the Dollar Rewards they are currently offering when you purchase product such as Kraft and Kellogs. You can see the full circular good through tomorrow here.

If you have clipped coupons the past couple of weeks there are several coupon matchups.

*The Dollar Rewards are based on the shelf price so that makes for even more savings!

Grocery Budget left to spend $256.66

The start of homemade Christmas gifts Part 2

What to do with broken up crayons or just trying to make larger crayons for your toddler?
How about melting them!
I followed these directions.

I made these crayons for my son for either his upcoming birthday or Christmas can't decide yet.

I chose to use brand new crayons, after the torcher of peeling all the labels off I organized them by like colors into a large lined muffin pan.

I would suggest if you don't want to ruin your pan to use the paper muffin liners, they peel away very easily once the crayons are cooled.

Menu Plan Monday


Savory Potato Bake
Crockpot Roast and veggies
Spaghetti and meatballs
Beef Enchiladas
Baked Pork Chops, brocolli and mashed potatoes
Crock Pot Chicken and veggies

A few desserts we will have this week consist of Ice Cream, left over apple pie from Sunday, Apple Crisp, Cinnamon sugar pretzels and funnel cake sticks.
