What is Your Snack Hack ? 3 Tips For the Week + Enter to Win $25 from Smart & Final!

How are you all doing?? We are over here starting a new week of  our quarantine lifestyle!! 
So how do you stay on a budget, feed your family at home, not get tired of eating the same things, AND stay on a budget??  Well I have some ideas and tips for you this month!! PLUS Smart & Final is giving YOU the opportunity to win a $25 Gift Card EVERY WEEK through the month of April!!

All you have to do is participate in their Snack Hack Posts in their Instagram stories!! Easy Right?
I just posted mine!

Here are 3 tips this week to make things a little easier on your self, your budget, and possibly more fun!

Tip #1 
Make meals out of what you have already! You may not be able to make a full on fancy meal, but I have found that by using some items I have on hand I have made some items that the kids really like!
I had a can of First Street Chili (no beans) in the pantry and I had a bag of frozen fries in the freezer! 
Made my kids chili cheese fries and they were SO HAPPY! Definitely not a meal I would have planned-but it is something my kids would have wanted to run through a drive-thru and buy (So I REALLY saved some money too!) Easy clean up too!

Tip #2
Make a Menu With What You Have 
By making a menu of your meals, snack and desserts- and using tip #1 you can plan your meals out and stretch out the length between grocery store trips- then just shop for the items you may need to use up what you have. 

Tip #3
Get Your Family Involved!
When this whole thing started I planned these great meals and we had big dinners every night and it was great, but then…
-we got tired of cleaning for an hour after dinner
-we weren’t as hungry for dinner because activity levels are lower
-we got tired of eating our usual dinners

When my kids started saying what they would like to eat, it made them willing to help cook and clean. When they saw we had fries and chili- they were happy because they like to eat those items from fast food restaurants. This made them think about what other foods they missed and we started using what we had to create a variety of items that were FUN and different.

3 Reasons to Do Grocery Pickup at Walmart During Covid-19 Quarantine

Have you tried Walmart Grocery Pickup yet?? In this time in the world I am recommending it to people for the following reasons-

  1. You will not have to go into the store. No Contact.You order right online, pull up to the store in the pick up area and they load your car for you-most of the time it is in less than 1 minute!
  2. Budget Control- You will know exactly what you are spending when you place your order and it will keep you from impulse buying
  3. Less Grocery Trips- If you plan out your menu and make a shopping list, you can order everything you need at once and eliminate extra trips for the 1 or 2 items you forgot at the store when you were there!O

Grocery Outlet Sacramento $50 Weekly Shopping Trip +Tips!

If you follow me regularly you may see how much I LOVE shopping at Grocery Outlet!!

I can walk in and find so many amazing deals on NAME BRAND groceries- no coupons needed!!! It is so much fun and so easy to save shopping there. 

Many of you have asked WHICH LOCATION I shop at- I shop at the Grocery Outlet on 2308 Del Paso Blvd in Sacramento- although if I am passing any other store I usually HAVE TO go in and see because I love finding those great deals!! 

One of the highlights of Grocery Outlet is that they have a whole aisle dedicated to healthy NOSH items- and I do the Keto Diet and I find all my sweeteners, coffee, and other healthy items there WAY cheaper than any other grocery store. Sometimes diets seem expensive, but I can still eat this way and stay in my budget!

Each week I like to go in and spend around $50 and get items fro my dinner menu- and the biggest savings-KIDS LUNCHES!!!

Here is my most recent $50  Trip-I was able to grab lots of produce because we make big salads for dinner on busy nights- I also grabbed some Foster Farms Frozen Chicken Strips to throw in quickly for the protein-and a Devour frozen pizza so the kids won’t complain about the salad!

I just love the Starbucks Cold Brew and they have it for $2.49!!! That and some $.99 Almond Milk and I am set for the week- and I spend less than ONE drink buying it outside the house! Big $$$$ Savings right there!!

Kids Lunch Items- Here is where I save the MOST!

They had Uncrustables which my kids love, also Launch Sandwich pockets which are similar but with Turkey and Cheese- $1.49! A 12 Pack of Tree Top Applesauce $3.99, Fruit Roll Ups $.99, Lemon Fiber One Cakes $.99, and the lunch meat and sliced cheese were only $1.99-ALL NAME BRANDS!!

It is always a great idea to start your week shopping at Grocery Outlet! You will be able to find items you were planning to pay WAY more for. Each location may have a little different deals, and not all items are available every time you go there, but that is what I enjoy about it! My kids are always trying new things and not getting burned out with the big Costco sizes of granola bars before the box is gone! Since I have started shopping here my spending has gone WAY down- plus I don’t have to cut coupons or do much planning before I shop here which is great because I tend to get busier as my week goes on, but I know that I have groceries to start with!

March is Frozen Food Month- Great Deal at Smart & Final-$10 Back When You Spend $40!!

 

 

March is FROZEN FOOD MONTH!!! 

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!
