Weekly Spending Report: 06/19-25/2016

This week just seemed to fly by.  I worked a good bit, and when I wasn't working, we were always on the go.  I am hoping that next week will have a slower pace; I could use the rest.  We are still hunkered down in the RV while the renovations are being completed in our apartment.  This has pushed back our potty-training timeline, so diapers were on the grocery list this week - at least I got a great deal on them!  I am pleased with what I was able to purchase for my money this week, even if it is more than I like to spend.  I am also very grateful for all the previous months when we were under budget for groceries, since that is providing us with the cushion we will need to stay within our budget for June.  Below are the deals I scored this week...
  • Sunday's CVS Trip: $14.07 oop, Earned $25 ECB's ($10 diapers, $5 lotion, $2 drinks, and $3 Ziploc), and $3 Checkout51 Rebate (Pamper's Cruisers)
  • Sunday's ALDI Trip: $32.12 oop (included, but not pictured in 4 gallons of H2O, and 1 package of organic chicken breasts which were already in the crock-pot)
  • Sunday's Giant Trip: $34.74 oop, Earned $1.50 Checkout51 Rebate ($0.50 Luna Bar x 3), $0.10 Mobisave Rebate (frozen pizza), and $1 Saving Star Rebate (Mama Celeste Pizza)
Total OOP: $80.91
Total Earned: $30.60
Total Remaining for June: $112.64

Menu Plan Monday - 06/27/2016

We should be able to move back into the apartment this week!!!!  I love staying in the camper, but I'm ready for a very long, very hot, 'real' shower.  Tomorrow is the final inspection of the renovations, and if everything goes as planned, I should be able to clean tomorrow night and get us moved back in on Wednesday!  I'm just a little excited in case you couldn't tell.  I'm still keeping things super simple this week menu-wise - I am so looking forward to having a full kitchen again - RV cooking, while good, is getting a little redundant for me.  Here's what's on the menu this week...
  • Breakfasts: Fruit, and PB Toast for Me; Pop-Tarts for Joe; Turkey Sausage Links, Mini Muffins, Fruit, Fruit and Grain Bars, and/or Peanut Butter Fiber Bars for Howard
  • Lunches: Leftovers, Canned Soup, Salad, Misc. Frozen TV Meals, and/or PB and J Waffle Sandwiches
  •  Dinners:
    • Sunday - French Bread Pizza
    • Monday - Burgers
    • Tuesday - Subs (from the Amish Market we are going to that day - yummy!)
    • Wednesday - Take-out
    • Thursday - Crock-pot Pork Chops and Mushroom Gravy, Jasmine Rice, Steamed Broccoli
    • Friday - Crock-pot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, Baked French Fries
    • Saturday - Crock-pot Pasta and Meatballs, Foccacia Bread, Green Beans
