Thursday- shredded beef tacos with homemade salsa and spanish rice
Friday- italian cream cheese and chicken
Saturday- spicy chicken chili
Finally finished with my freezer cooking days, I ended up leaving a couple of things off of my list (like the cookies and homemade hot dog buns). Still, I have lots of yummy things in the freezer and it wasn't bad for a first attempt. :)

Still to go:
3 batches of pumpkin pancakes
4 dozen double chocolate cookies (not sure if I will make them all and freeze them or just freeze the dough)
homemade strawberry poptarts
homemade hot dog buns
homemade personal pizza pockets
shredded beef from a roast
hot chocolate mix
2 pounds of dried pinto beans
1 pound of dried red kidney beans
This was my very first freezer cooking day so I purposefully decided not to attempt a whole lot of entrees this month to see how it went. And we actually needed a lot of the breakfast foods so that is why there are so many of them. With a two year old and a six month old, I am actually having to space my cooking out across several days. I can keep my toddler entertained but the baby is teething and she wasn't having any part of my cooking and not tending to her. :) We have enjoyed eating some of the things that I have already made and I love that my freezer is holding several options for other things. I have taken several pictures and will probably post them at the end once everthing is finished.

The idea behind a day like this is so stock your freezer with lots of yummy and healthy (okay, sometimes not so healthy in the case of baking) meals and snacks for the month. I will post my cooking plan tomorrow. Look forward to lots of pictures. :)

This was a 58% savings, so a pretty good trip. I had lots of good coupons and $4.50 in catalinas and I am getting $2.09 back in a rebate. (I am going to make some homemade pumpkin and chocolate chip muffins today or tomorrow and I actually used the catalinas to get the canned pumpkin and chocolate chips.) We had a pretty crazy grocery trip, it was raining so I had to try to keep the babies dry. I had to go though because my son only had three diapers left! I hated to go out in the rain for just the diapers so that is why I went through my coupons and grabbed a few other items too. When we got to the checkout, we had to wait for 15 minutes...there were only two registers open. So this trip definitely counted as an adventure!

The razors were on sale for $3.99 and I had 3 $3 off 1 coupons. (99 cents for a 4 pack of razors is a good deal!). The shaving cream was on sale for $1.89 and I had two $1/1 Q. (yet again, 89 cents is a good deal and my stockpile that I had for shaving cream has been almost exhausted.) The poptarts were on sale for $2 each and I had one $1/2 target Q and $1/2 manufacturer Q so it made them $1 each. There are 55 cent/1 Q's that would have made it 10 cents cheaper but I didn't have two of them. And the movie is for our little boy for Christmas. It should have been $5 but I had a $2 coupon so I got it for $3. We got a lot for our money. :)

This site is a great site for getting coupons. I am getting ready to try a full size secret clinical strength deodorant for free and the only thing that I have to do afterward is write a short comment about it on their site and maybe fill out a survey. This website is really nice anyhow, lots of good articles and fun surveys.
She speaks- www.shespeaks.com
Another great site for coupons and samples and you actually get to have influence over what is made and sold!
This one will let you try products before they release them and give you coupons to give to your family and friends.
All of these sites ask that you share your opinions with the people that you know. You should never sign up on one of these sites just to get free items without committing to do your part to tell others about the products. There are lots of other sites like this out there but these are all sites that I am actually a member at. I would love comments from anyone who knows of any other great sites like these.
