Boneless skinless chicken breast $1.48 / lb in Oregon, Washington, & Idaho

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

This message is for those interested in stocking up on boneless skinless chicken breast.

I have never used this company before,  but have seen a great buzz online from  a couple of my fugal blogs about it.  I am planning to order some.  This is a company that delivers fresh chicken every four months to sites in Oregon, Idaho, and Washington. 

So on Nov 8th is the Salem drop off day for the chicken. The cost is $1.48 a pound for fresh (never been frozen)  boneless chicken breast.   They come in 40 lb boxes. The chicken in each box is in four 10 lb bags. Each box is about 54 ck breast.    Each box cost $59.20. People have to freeze desired amounts in freezer bags.   Hope this helps. 

Here is the web site for those who want to buy or look into it further:

I will also include a link to a site that has more info:

I have two other blogs links if there is anyone interested, just let me know.

Free candy at Rite Aid

Thursday, October 7, 2010

This picture came from http://hip2save.com/2010/10/my-rite-aid-candy-score.html
*Update--- this deal now is posting online as no longer valid.  But I am glad I got it when I did.
I saw a post on one of my favorite blogs for how to score free candy from  Rite Aid.  I ran there tonight to pick up some Halloween candy and see if it worked.  Well, it mainly worked.  My total came out right, but  I was shorted $4 in printed coupons at the end of the transaction.  I got $26 in coupons instead of $30.  I was fine with that since I only paid $25 for the candy, before  I used my gift card from last months savings.  I looked later at what coupons printed and two bags of Halloween tootsie rolls that were the same price were not in the deal.  They were the same price so I was hoping they were included.   Anyway still a great deal.

Check the post here on what to buy that works. Also note that this is the candy found in the regular candy isle, not the Halloween candy. 

I don't know how long this deal will last.  I would guess that it ends on Saturday. Any how I did not want to take a chance  of it not being there tomorrow, so that is why I went tonight.

If you wake me up again...

Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Today in preschool, Mr. M learned about frogs.  So tonight he took a bath and was sent to dress himself in PJs.  When later checked upon about 15 minutes later to see if he was dressed, he was already in bed asleep. So dad peeked to make sure he was dressed, well you guessed it he wasn't.  In the process of peeking he was awaken, which resulted in a grumpy boy for being disturbed.  He told his dad, "If you wake me up again, I'm going to rough you up!"


"What does rough you up mean?"
" It means I'm going to do karate on you."
Dad and him had a talk about not talking that way and we don't do those things either. Not sure where he learned that.  He has an amazing vocabulary that shocks me often. 

He then added, "When I am tired I make bad choice. " (all too true for all of us)

Then dad dressed him, which did not make him happy.  As he left we hear Mr. M yell, "Abracadabra, diggery do, I'm turning you into a frog.  And you don't know the secret password either."

Minutes later he was back asleep, but this is a reminder of our daily laughs and sometimes battle we get with him.  It's just so hard not to laugh when he is trying to be in charge.  We hear that Abracadabra thing often. I guess that is better than what he always said last year when he got angry, which was," You're going to Jail".

Comments like that make me really want to ask,"Where did this kid come from?"  The going to jail comment originated about an discussion that  I could go to jail if he did not sit in his car seat and that turned into everyone going to jail for anything if you don't listen to Mr. M.  Love this boy, love him lots, but I think he is going to be one to keep me on my toes daily. 

PS.  Miss A just woke him up again as she went off to bed.  He just let her know he is not happy.

PSS Here is how we just found him and luckily he didn't get woken too much as we moved him to a safer portion of his bed.

Shaun likes it best when the meals are planned and all ingredients are in the house for the month. We only buy perishables as needed, but it is a consistent list each week. We have found that the bottom line is we save money that way. I thought I would share this month. Can't say I will post again, but here is how it works.


We don't eat according to the date, In fact, since we have pretty much all ingredients on hand we pick and chose according to the day what will best suit our family. We try to mark church and family events so we plan for those too. Tonight we are having tacos which is on day 23. We have already eaten days 1, 3,4, and 16. We just mark it with an X, so we know what is left for the month.

Also, I store copies in a note book with dividers 1-31. Day 1 corresponds with divider # 1, and so forth. No more hunting for recipes, all together and ready to go.

Let me know what you think.
