Grocery list and menu planning

This last year I had a lot of fun shopping at Pick N Save on Wedensday and Saturday because of there promotioanl DOUBLE COUPON DAY!  Unfortunately they ended it on the 1st of the year!  :(  I wish I would have kept all my receipts to see how much I saved.  I would use all my dollar off coupons and save two dollars and then combine that with the weekly sales and I was getting AWESOME deals!  I will miss it..:(

So one of my goals is to start to menu plan so I can stay on a food budget easier and stress less about what is for dinner, and go out to eat even less!!  Our schedule is so different because many nights we are not home for dinner until late.  Wednesday's is FUSE night so Selah and I will eat together while daddy is at work, Thursday we have Awana so we eat a simple meal, I work at the Y on Monday and Fridays and am not home until 7ish.  My mind frame before was whats the point of planning when we barely get to enjoy a meal together, but our family has been eating later in the evening and that is ok.  My hubby helps out many times that I am at the YMCA and he will cook.  He does enjoy cooking so that is nice!  I really want to cut back on the quick drive threw foods, and have easy things to cook, or better yet use my slow cooker more often!  :)  SLOW COOKER ALL THE WAY!!!  Do you have any good recipes to share???

As I was ready to start making my list for the store and menu plan I thought I will find a free template online and I am super excited I came across the blog:  "Faithful Provisions" -  You shall check it out!  :)  So right on her blog she has 2 templates that i am using for making my grocery list and menu plan.  You just click and type and print, no feature to save but that is ok I have no need to save it!  :)

Here's to hoping that menu planning and grocery lists are helpful here at the Flanigan house! So I have some easy recipes picked out and a slow cooker recipe for next week!  Feel free to share your favorite recipes!  :) I need some new ideas to shake it up a bit around here!


To update I have enjoyed the menu on the fridge but I have changed and switched a few of the days! I think that is normal though!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
