Look, folks. It’s time to take a long hard look in the mirror and accept the areas in your life that are just messed up from the floor up. And yo, two of those areas for me is cooking and laundry. I HATE doing laundry. That’s why I taught the kids how to do laundry at a young age. Don’t judge, take note on that tidbit and thank me later. Yes, they each do their own laundry. And when they say, “I don’t have anything to wear.” My response is, “Not my problem. You better get your life together!” (that’s my response to everything). To tackle the cooking issue I took time on December 30 and made a meal plan for the next two weeks. Then I went on a search for printable coupons for grocery shopping. Cause, the goal is to cut down on eating out and save money overall.
My family complains that we have the same meals over and over. Honestly, that’s why we go out to eat a lot. No one wants to hear complaints about their cooking. So….hmmm….I’m not cooking. Ok, I do cook the same thing over and over. You’re eating, right?!
Instead of scrolling past all the great meals shared in the Facebook group, this lady will take note of the meal suggestions on our Meal Plan thread every Sunday in Mamas and Coffee Facebook Group. Going to get my life together!
I hear people talk about price comparing different stores, but honestly, I’m not driving around to different stores for one or two items. Nope, nope, nope. DadJonz and I have discussed purchasing our meat from the local butcher shop. Lunch snacks, and toiletries from Costco. And our weekly grocery needs from the commissary. So, weekly visits to the commissary it is.
This may sound silly, but as I planned our meals for the next two weeks a bit of joy came over me as I thought about the kids heading back to school. Oh, wait. No, the joy wasn’t about the kids going back to school, it was about thinking of the savings on school breakfast items. Ok, 49% of that joy was about them heading back to school. Again, don’t judge. Hey, we love our kids, but those jokers gotta go. They need their peers. Just like we need silence.
It’s all good. You can say it — no judgment from me. Just a straight up mom toast to you and a head nod.
Ok, back to finding printable coupons for grocery shopping. Cause hey, you know I will veer to a whole different topic.

Fashion Diva Girl and Equestrian Girl Forever love some breakfast. Procrastination Jonz usually grabs fruit or Hawaiian Rolls as she runs out the door. Yes, Hawaiian Rolls. My other kids want waffles (homemade, I do get them to eat some Eggos from time to time), eggs, toast, biscuits or cinnamons rolls. Honey yes. She loves some Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. And you know I found a few different coupons for those cinnamon rolls!
The joy that overcame my soul to print that $1 off coupon…oh snap! That’s all I can say. Yes, there were more printable coupons. Printed coupons for yogurt, cookies, salsa, biscuits, more cinnamon rolls, and laundry detergent.

Appreciate what you’ve shared Sybil and coupons..yes!
I haven’t been able to go to Cosco yet but hope in the future I can get a membership and stock up some. My daughter goes and could go with her but she’s 10 miles away and usually after working not up to running that far lol
I always cook at home with few exceptions and have a tight, tight budget. Your sharing this encourages me as I plan meals. It does make a world of difference. My grandson is here on the weekend and doesn’t complain too much if he wants to eat lol
I have a food stock pantry so can plan meals from what I have if needed and a deep freezer as well. Do you have a deep freezer to store frozen items in for meals as you go forth. It helps a lot
Hi Cindy. We have a deep freezer and will be using it more. We are going to only buy meat from our local butcher and freeze it. Hopefully, that will help cut down on the waste. We waste so much money buying food and not using it. On a mission to do better. Already have my meat out to thaw for dinner tonight. Totally understand about the 10 miles. It’s not far, but after work and especially with traffic. That can turn into a nightmare of a drive for sure.
