I spent $35.86 on food/toiletries/HBA this last week at Weis.  
This brings our food/toiletries/paper goods Total to $148.59 for June.  

There are 3 shopping days left in June.

I've earned $18.80 on Ibotta in June.
I've earned $0 on Checkout51 in June.
I've earned $5.00 on Coupons dotcom in June.
I've earned 11,503 points from shopping on Fetch in June.
I earned 5,702 points from food shopping on Shop Kick in June. 
I've earned $5.38 from food shopping on Swag Bucks in June.

That's $23.80 in rebates(not counting the Shop Kick/Swag Bucks/Fetch)on $148.59 in grocery spending so in reality it's $124.79 spent after the 3 rebate apps I count.

My savings percentage for the last week was 10.00% (without "regular" Rite-Aid trips)and the monthly savings total for June comes in at 40.05% so far(w/out R-A).  

Leftovers going into this week....Hot Dog Chili, Beef Pie, Steak.

Here is this week's "food plan".....
1. Sunday--Leftover Tempura Shrimp, Salad
2. Monday--Fend For Yourself
3. Tuesday--FFY
4. Wednesday--FFY
5. Thursday--Probably some sort of take-out
6.  Friday--Breakfast for Dinner
7. Saturday--?  Depends of what Hubs made this week

What do I need to buy to fix everything on this menu?  I won't be here half+ of the week.  Hubs has lots of leftovers to eat.

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 deals on food at your stores this week?  



  1. We have another meal for Tommy of carne asada, one chicken breast for me, 4 meals of taco casserole/soup, Two whole chunks of breasts from a chicken I put in the crockpot. That is five meals for two. So, we will have that and any leftover vegetables, like the huge pan of squash. I may bake sweet potatoes and heat those in the microwave when we want one. The breasts will go in a casserole that starts with Stove Top stuffing, can of soup, egg, and chicken.

  2. I made a giant zucchini pasta bake instead of lasagna due to laziness. Maybe pizza tomorrow and may thaw some frozen soup. Or sandwiches - no other ideas this week.

  3. I understand where Kim was coming from!

  4. They had fun without us Anne, we have to get back at them!

  5. What are we going to do with that Kim?! 😂 I have hamburger thawing for tacos for tomorrow nights dinner and we are having pizza for movie night tonight. Other than that, I’m not sure. Safe travels to you.
