Menu Plan Monday: 07/25/2016

This week we are leaving to go on our 'working vacation.'  We are heading to a steam show - we help out with set up to get free electric and water for our RV during the week, and the money we make at our flea market stand pays for our fun vacation to OC at the end of the month!  It works out SOOOO... well!  Because we will be back in the RV for 12 days and out in the heat working during the day, I kept things super simple and light.  I cannot wait to try out the walking tacos recipe - if they turn out well, I'll be sure to share the recipe with you all.  Below is what I have planned for this week...
  • Breakfasts: Fruit, Mini Bagels with Cream Cheese, and/or Luna Bars for Me; Pop-Tarts or Bagels with Cream Cheese for Joe; Turkey Sausage Links, Mini Muffins, Fruit, and/or Fruit and Grain Bars for Howard 
  • Lunches: Egg Salad, Roast Beef, Tomato and Bacon Sandwiches, Chips, and Veggie Dippers with Ranch for Joe and I.  Howard will have Turkey Sausage links, Cheese Slices, Mac and Cheese cups, and/or PB Waffles and Fruit.  We will also eat at Jimmy Johns twice - I LOVE their sandwiches!
  • Dinners:
    • Sunday - Wendy's while running errands
    • Monday - Chinese Take-out
    • Tuesday - Pizza  

    • Wednesday - Sandwiches or Subs while driving
    • Thursday - Walking Tacos (recipe coming)
    • Friday - Walking Tacos Leftovers
    • Saturday - TBA

Weekly Spending Report: 07/17-23/2016

This week I had a LOT on the to buy list.  Next week we are leaving for our 'working' vacation, so I decided to split things up and buy some stuff this week, and the rest next week.  We'll also have to pick up a few fresh items once we get there.  We were finally able to move back into the apartment on Friday - the renovations are all complete, for now.  There is still plenty to be done, but the bathroom looks fabulous!  There were a few great deals this week that I wanted to take advantage of, like the Zantac - only $1.66 each, yes please!  Also, it's tomato season, need I say more?  Any way, here is how my spending broke-down this week...
  • Monday's CVS Trip: $12.37 oop, Earned $6 ECB's (Zantac x 3), $4 Saving Star Rebate (Zantac), and $0.10 Mobisave Rebate (dish soap)
