~Tip for Today=Cook Ahead!~

Feeling overwhelmed with summer break ending, school beginning and a million things to get done in a week?
Well, I've been a bit overwhelmed trying to figure out how to get everything that needs to be done in the next 2 weeks accomplished. Between school, work, holidays, guests, birthdays, etc there seems to be no time to plan ahead.

In an attempt to make the next couple of weeks easier for me in the kitchen, I'm spending today cooking chicken in bulk in my crock pots. Once they are finished, I'll chop them up and freeze them individually based off how much my family eats per meal.

This is an easy way to get ahead of the game and stick to a meal plan. I'm always saying that it is so much easier to eat at home if you can make a meal in 20-30 minutes. If your meat is already cooked, you are one step away from a quick and easy dinner!

Hope this helps someone today!

~Tip for Today=School Supplies!~

Buy school supplies in bulk!

It is a no-brainer to buy school supplies right now when you can get them super CHEAP! There is no reason to wait until the last minute and go one place to buy them all at full price. Instead, each week look at the sales ads and drop by the participating store (or comp at Wal-mart) and pick up those items. Pick up extra for next year or to donate.

As we all know, there are some supplies that your child will need each and every year. Why not buy them when they are .01-.10 each, rather than $1?

This is really not overwhelming, I promise. No coupons are needed. Just run in and get the sale items. It really is that simple :)

Happy Monday!

~Tip for the Day=Use it up!~

Tip for the day...

Don't throw food away! One of my 2012 goals was to use food up before it goes bad. My ultimate goal was to not throw any food away this year. We have done a great job! Yes, there have been things that had to go. However, not many. We have tried to use all ingredients on hand and tweak our menu to make it work out that no veggies went bad before we finished them. That has meant a lot of veggie salads for us! Luckily, we love them and like eating lighter when it is so hot.

Challenge: Try to use up all the food in your fridge before it goes bad!

Happy Tuesday!

~Tip for Today!~

Howdy Sassy Savers!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Is everyone surviving the heat? Whew.

As I was trying to come up with something to write about today, I thought about a tip for the day. You all seem to love those!

Tip for today:

When you are at the end of a tube of a squeezable item (toothpaste or sunscreen), simply cut off the bottom. You will find at least a weeks worth of product left. I just did this with my sunscreen and am on week #2 of using it. I was amazed at how much was actually left! Nothing would come out no matter how hard I squeezed!

Hope you found this tip helpful!

Happy Monday~
