For my family it is one of the busiest months of the year so it is perfect timing!!
I made sure my freezer was thinned out-and boy am I glad I did!
Smart & Final has a deal running ALL MONTH LONG-spend $40 on participating frozen food items and get $10 off your next grocery purchase (which I used on NON frozen items!!!!)
I brought my kids with me because I have learned that if they aren’t going to eat it, it doesn’t matter what kind of deal I got! Also, I want to make sure they will make it when I am busy this month so I am not worried if they are eating or not!
Some items are our staples from Smart & Final- their First Street fried rice (they have Vegetable and Chicken) are our FAVORITE! We also get their Orange Chicken and Teriyaki often because it is so good!So of course I made sure I grabbed $40 worth of JUST this so that we wouldn’t be tempted to run to Panda Express on busy sports nights!!!Make sure you look for the “Participating Items” labels- not ALL frozen food counts- but most of it does.
Now my freezer is nice and full and my kids are so happy!
Here they are choosing their items -and I picked a couple things too!
Don’t forget to go to SmartandFinal.com and sign up for their email coupons! I got a 12 Pack of Maruchuan Noodles for $.01 with a $25 Purchase!!! One of my kids was more excited about that than the frozen food!
Hello Studio 40 Live Viewers!!!! Here is all the info on everything I shared on today’s segment!! I am so excited for Valentine’s Day and I have come up with some very simple budget-friendly ideas for you!
Here is what I bought at Smart & Final
Doritos 50 ct. $13.99 ($.28 each)
First Street Microwave Popcorn 24ct. $6.99 ($.29 each)
I used the Doritos bags- but any bags of chips will work for this.
I printed these simple printables
that say You are all that and a bag of chips!
I just taped them on – can easily be done by kids too!
Then I printed these printables for the microwave popcorn that say
You Make My Heart Pop!
This is a very simple snack for watching a family movie or a Valentine Party snack for the kids!
1 Box/Bag Teddy Grahams
1 Bag of Mini Marshmallows
1 Bag of Valentine Colored M&Ms
This is just so cute and a big hit in my house.
I always use the First Street Double Strength Red Food Coloring.
Just make one big bowl of mix and cook a few plain waffles (or pancakes) then add a little food coloring to make the batter pink and make some more-then add enough to make the batter red and then make the rest. It looks so pretty on a tray or individual plate.
I got the Dash Mini Heart Waffle Maker at Target for $9.99
This is just a MUST for ANY holiday or a weekend or weekday quick dessert
Cake Mix Cookies
1 Cake Mix ( I used Strawberry)
1/2 Cup Oil
Mix and drop as cookies on a baking sheet.
Add chocolate or white chips if desired
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. They will not seem like they are done, but they are. Let cool and they will be the most moist cookies ever!!
