Menu Plan Monday: 04/18/2016

This week is fairly easy work-wise, only 1 large tour.  I do have a bunch of paperwork to do, as well as some floral things to make for the next tea.  Home-wise we are gearing up for Howard's 2nd birthday this coming weekend!  It's Curious George incase anyone is interested; he loves that monkey!  I have one day that is jam-packed with appointments, but other than that, I am hoping for a fairly laid-back week!  Here's how the menu's looking for this week... 
  • Breakfasts: Yogurt, Fruit, and Mini Bagels for me, Pop-Tarts for Joe, and Mini Muffins, Fruit, Yogurt, Sausages, and/or Fruit and Grain Bars for Howard
  • Lunches: Salads, Canned Soup, Misc. Frozen TV Meals, Chicken Salad/Tuna Salad/PB and J Sandwiches, Leftovers
  • Dinners:
    • Sunday - Cheeseburgers and French Fries
    • Monday - Take-out
    • Tuesday - Crock-pot Chicken, 3 Cheese Pasta, Vegetable (TBA)
    • Wednesday - Tacos, Mexican Rice, Salad
    • Thursday - Leftovers/Clean out the fridge
    • Friday - Howard's Birthday - Sonic!
    • Saturday - Frozen Pizza (Cake and Ice cream party afterwards)

Weekly Spending Report: 04/10-16/2016

This week I stocked up on cheap Pop-tarts for Joe's breakfasts (which earned me $14 in FREE gas), money-maker shampoos, new puzzles for Howard, and some fresh produce!  I also spent very little - under $60 for the week - which is AWESOME!  I am hoping that I can keep that up for the rest of the month! 
Here's how the spending broke-down this week...
  • Sunday's CVS Trip: $0.93 oop, Earned $4 ECB's ($2 Garnier Fructis, and $2 Garnier Whole Blends), $2 Saving Star Rebate (Garnier Whole Blends), and $5.29 Gift Card (I was accidentally charged for an extra shampoo)
  • Sunday's ALDI Trip: $21.08 oop (included, but not pictured are 4 gallons of H2O)
  • Sunday's Giant Trip: $37.29 oop (For buying 6 boxes of Pop-Tarts, I earned $0.40 off each gallon of gas up to 35 gallons, or $14 in gas savings!)

Total OOP: $59.30
Total Earned: $11.29
Total Remaining for April: $210.01
