Many Thanks

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank my sister in law for allowing me to babysit her princesses. They are abnormally well behaved and really a ton of fun to spend time with. I was not expecting a payment for the privileged at all and it was quite a blessing. I'm pretty sure it's gonna help me send another snowflake to the Citibank card this week.

Addressing yet another comment:

I really like having frozen meals in my freezer. Sometimes when I buy groceries I will just start cooking and freezing. I do have a weekly meal plan so I know what I am going to make. Sometimes just having the taco meat all made makes it so much easier to warm it and get the other fixings out.
Frozen meals are nice because you could make a few meals out of one recipe and save money in the long run by having food all set to go.
And sometimes cereal is good enough for dinner : )

I think I might need to take a class on how to cook frozen food because I just can't do it. I really do not like any food that I've had to re-heat after it's been frozen but I'm afraid I just don't know how to do it properly. I am however going to utilize this suggestion in my own way. Yesterday I made two dinners which basically means we're eating leftovers tonite BUT it will save me having to cook tonite. I figure I can double up dinners every other night or at least a few times a week and that will actually help with the dreaded "cooking dinner after the workout" problem I've been facing. Thank-you for the suggestion!!! Oh, and I definitely need a weekly meal plan. I'll probably start instituting that very soon.

I have to send out one more big thanks to anyone who's actually clicked on one of these adds on my page (which again, I DO NOT endorse). I'm really very surprised at how much income they're generating for me and I thank each and everyone of you who've actually checked one of the little buggers out. I will be announcing when I actually receive a payment from these ads and I guarantee that EVERY penny will be going to CC payoff. Yay!

  1. Menu planning is really the way to go. Before I started I used to be at a loss over what to cook half of the week and ended up getting take-out or going to the supermarket and buying the first thing that I saw plus a lot of other crap too. Now I decide what I'm going to cook for each night of the week; look in my cupboards to see what I already have that makes up the meals; then ONLY buy what I need for the menu. It's meant I spend far less at the store because I just buy what's on the list. The biggest benefit, in my opinion, is that I always know what we're going to be eating so I don't get home hungry and waste money. I don't often bulk cook but I do see the sense of it.
    By the way, thanks for your comment on my blog!
