I got a big kick out of this meme.

Onward to the meal planning!
Moving On-
This is what was planned.....
1. Sunday--Mushroom Quiche
2. Monday--Dogs and Burgers, Pasta Salad
3. Tuesday--Teriyaki Pork Stir-Fry w/Veggies
4. Wednesday--Leftovers
5. Thursday--More Leftovers or FFY
6.  Friday--Pizza?, Salad
7. Saturday--Leftovers

And this is what really happened.......
1. Sunday--Mushroom Quiche
2. Monday--Dogs and Burgers, Pasta Salad
3. Tuesday--Teriyaki Pork Stir-Fry w/Veggies
4. Wednesday--Leftovers
5. Thursday--Chinese Hot and Sour Soup
6.  Friday--Grilled Teriyaki Salmon, Mixed Veggies
7. Saturday--Leftover Stir-Fry

Last week saw 4 nights of home cooked dinners, 2 nights of leftovers/planned overs or FFY and 1 night of Take-Out/Eating Out.  Most of what was planned happened but not necessarily on the correct night.

What got put into the freezer last week....
* 8 pints of ice cream 8-) It's summer!
* 2 lbs. bratwurst

What got taken out of the freezer and used...
* 2 pie shells
* 6 burgers
* 8 hot dogs
* 1/2 bag of mixed veggies
* 1 teriyaki pork loin
* 1 hunk of salmon
* 1 bag of stir-fry veggies

We spent a whopping $67.13 on food/toiletries/HBA last week at 2 different stores(Walmart on Friday and Weeis(PMITA)Markets on Sunday).This brings our food/toiletries/paper goods Grand Total to $67.13 for June.   

There are 23 shopping days left in June.
I've earned $66.88 on Ibotta in June.
I've earned $0.00 on Checkout51 in June.
I've earned $3.00 on Coupons dotcom/Paypal in June.
I've earned 6,860 points from shopping on Fetch in June which equals $6.86.
I've earned 360 points from food shopping on Shop Kick in June which equals $1.44.
I've earned 0 points from food shopping on Swagbucks in June which equals $0.
That's $69.88 in rebates(not counting the ShopKick/Swag Bucks/Fetch)on $67.13 in grocery spending.

My savings percentage for last week was 56.67%(without "regular" Rite-Aid trips)for June and the monthly savings total for June comes in at  56.67%.(w/out R-A).  

Leftovers going into this week...pasta salad, potato salad, a helping of teriyaki pork stir-fry, lots of brown rice and 1 whole quiche.

Here is this week's "food plan".....
1. Sunday--Pizza, Tossed Salad
2. Monday--Soft tortilla Carnitas
3. Tuesday--Bratwursts on Rolls, leftover sides
4. Wednesday--Chicken Enchiladas
5. Thursday--some sort of Seafood, Sweet Tater Wedges
6.  Friday--? or Fend for Yourself
7. Saturday--Leftovers

What do I need to buy to fix everything on this menu? Domino's will make Sunday's meal for me lol but otherwise I've got everything here.  Don't "need" anything immediately but I am 13 rebates away on Ibotta from that $10 Bonus so that will happen sometime this week or weekend. 8-)

What is getting fixed and served at your house this week?

Was last week's plan successful, did you go off plan or did you not even plan what was going to be eaten last week?

Any great deals on food at your stores this week?  



  1. Laying off the rebate game this month?
    My plan for last week was only successful if, by success, you mean "did we manage to eat". If so then yep my plan was really successful.

  2. Those shoes are just plain scary. Does Dan have a pair clear back in the closet? I would be checking, just sayin....

  3. I spit out my drink seeing that I didn't even manage to read the rest of the post yet, I was laughing so
