This Week What Might or Might Not Be on the Dining Table

The "Donuts Everywhere Edition"...

I meant to post this last week for National Donut Day in honor of Kim but Hubs didn't send the photo to me from his phone in time. Found these dog frisbees at Ocean State Job Lot and thought of her. lol

Onward to the meal planning!

Moving On-
This is what was planned--
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

And this is what really happened.......
1. Sunday--Pizza, Tossed Salad
2. Monday--Soft tortilla Carnitas
3. Tuesday--Bratwursts on Rolls, leftover sides
4. Wednesday--Leftovers
5. Thursday--hot dogs, potato salad
6.  Friday--Fend for Yourself
7. Saturday--Corn on the cob, Leftovers

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.  We had lunch out on Friday while shopping so we just scrounged for dinner,

What got put into the freezer last week....
* 1 container of ice cream
Most of what we bought was toiletries and produce.

What got taken out of the freezer and used...
* Whiskey flavored pork roast
* 4 Bratwurst
* 4 hot dogs

We spent a whopping $36.60 on food/toiletries/HBA last week at 2 different stores(Walmart on Wednesday and the Produce Outlet on Friday).This brings our food/toiletries/paper goods Grand Total to $103.73 for June.   

There are 16 shopping days left in June.

I've earned $116.96 on Ibotta in June.
I've earned $0.00 on Checkout51 in June.
I've earned $3.50 on Coupons dotcom/Paypal in June.
I've earned 7053 points from shopping on Fetch in June which equals $7.05.
I've earned 1036 points from food shopping on Shop Kick in June which equals $4.14.
I've earned 0 points from food shopping on Swagbucks in June which equals $0.
That's $120.46 in rebates(not counting the ShopKick/Swag Bucks/Fetch)on $103.73 in grocery spending.

My savings percentage for last week was 79.67%(without "regular" Rite-Aid trips)for June and the monthly savings total for June comes in at 79.03%.(w/out R-A).  Higher than usual savings rate due to clearance at Walmart and cheap produce at the Produce Outlet.

Leftovers going into this week... potato salad, a helping of teriyaki pork stir-fry, lots of brown rice, some carnitas and 2 helpings of quiche.

Here is this week's "food plan".....
1. Sunday--Chinese Take-out
2. Monday--Caesar Salad w/Grilled Chicken
3. Tuesday--Some Protein TBD, Sweet Potato Wedges
4. Wednesday--Chicken Parm, Spinach Salad
5. Thursday--Fend for Yourself
6.  Friday--Steak, Baked Potato, Tossed Salad
7. Saturday--Leftovers

What do I need to buy to fix everything on this menu? Nothing really.  Got the proteins and lots of fresh produce here from last week's shop.  Just need the "umph" to whip up the meals.

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. What the heck Sluggy! I'm in awe over that grocery numbers. Way to go on that negative amount!

  2. Good for you, I will not eat a dog frisbee, but a donut.....
