Dinner at My House-Bring $2!! All on Sale at Raley’s!!!



Well, I had a great trip at Raley’s today, and I thought I would share our dinner pics with you!

Our whole family (7 of us tonight), is having Ribs, Grilled Corn on the Cob, Salad, and for dessert-grilled pears with ice cream, maple syrup and cinnamon.


For all 7 of us to have this for dinner, I spent $15!! We couldn’t have fast food for this amount!!! Plus-it was all cooked outside so minimal clean-up!!!

Celebrate Cow Appreciation Day With a Free Meal at Chik-fil-A today!!


So, today at Chik-fil-A, if you dress up like a cow, you get a free combo meal!

I have done this every year with my kids, and they are super excited about going. They have their scissors and black construction paper out!  Well, all but one kid is excited-my 3yr. old is crying and having a melt down because he doesn’t want to dress up like a cow, but his sister is convincing him he can be a basketball playing cow-so maybe that will work!   

If you don’t want to ‘dress up’ like a cow, you can print out Chik-fil-a’s printable cow costume.

Basically it is just ears, spots, and a eat more chicken sign you can tape on your clothes. You can get a meal with a chicken sandwich, chicken nuggets or chicken strips, fries and a drink for FREE!!  If you have a partial costume, you can get just an entree for free. My kids want their own soda, so they are making sure they have a good costume!

Raley’s Shopping Trip 7/8



Well, thanks to my kids and a great friend, we had some fun at Raley’s this morning!!!

I planned my menu and shopping list for Raley’s this week because I save the most money there. Plus, I have been wanting to eat more balanced meals, so I just shopped for most everything there today.

I did 6 shopping trips, got $170 worth of groceries and spent $65.  A lot of items I did not have coupons for, but I still got a lot of really good deals!! 

I got $76.66 of groceries for  FREE!!!!!
Strawberries (12 POUNDS!)
-Raleys E-Coupon for FREE strawberries really =2 lbs for free because they are buy one get one free this week
Johnsonville Breakfast Sausage (4.5 POUNDS!)-Raleys E-Coupon, and you can get links or patties
Oral B Advantage Toothbrushes -Free with $2 off from 7/3 PG coupon
Mt. Olive Pickle Relish– $1.49, $.75 comesoff automatically, and there were $.75 coupons on each jar-or you can use
Ribs-Ribs were Buy One Get One Free, so I got 1 free!

The rest are deals I have listed HERE and HERE. I really wanted to see how much I could get for $100, but even with all the produce and meat I didn’t get that high. I may go back for some more chicken later!
