Here is a Story to Read

The Prudent Homemaker recently left a comment on my blog and I wanted to check out her site. Talk about someone who understands hard times and the benefits of being prepared for them! Read her story HERE. She makes very good points of what is important to stock up on and what you should just leave on the stores shelves. I like that she has lived this experience and has valuable information that she is willing to share with us. I haven't been all the way through her site, yet, but I like what I've read so far. Check it out when you have a few minutes to yourself.

Bountiful Baskets- Order Today

This is a reminder to order your basket as soon as the site has them available. Last time they were sold out in a matter of hours and I know many people who regularly order who were left without a basket or they went to Mendon. They are adding 10 more baskets to our site and we may be going weekly soon, I just don't know for sure when. People are hearing more about the co-op and recognizing what a value it is for your $.
I just found out that the two ladies who started this program and still run it are also volunteers. They are amazing in my opinion. We do run on volunteers and I personally am very grateful for all of you who come and help me!!!

Last Week of Challenge

Here goes the last week of 'The Challenge'. It was much harder than I first thought it would be. From not stocking up the way I have been to the time to cook from scratch. Without shopping I had a bit more time. It has been a good challenge because of what I have learned:

1- I have had to be better about planing out the weeks menu in advance. That saves time in my week to plan one day and run with it. Who really wants to think everyday 'What will I fix for dinner tonight?'!

2- I have been cooking a lot more from scratch. The bread recipe was an amazing find. I have thought for long time now that I need more skills in the kitchen.

3- I have had a pretty good start on my food storage for when we need it. More importantly, I know my weak areas and I can work on them.

4- I have a better idea of what I want in my garden this upcoming summer. I like having enchilada and spaghetti sauce handy!

5- It's amazing what you can get for $30 when you put a bit of planning into it.

6- I can move past the urge of eating out. The week that Papa Murphy's was having their $10 special I did not call my hubby and tell him to pick one up on his way home, even though I wanted to. I was very happy a few days back when we really wanted dinner from The Golden Jade and I had not used up my 'one dinner out for the month card'. We did bring it home, which saves money by not getting their drinks.

Here is this weeks menu:

Chicken Noodle Soup- left overs, so good the second day!

Beef in Gravy over Rice w/veggies on the side

Beef & Bean Burritos, they are pre-made in the freezer

Chicken Croissants w/Mashed Potatoes & Gravy
The croissants recipe is HERE

Homemade Hamburger Helper

Barbecue Beef Sandwiches, I will make hamburger buns again.

Ham & Bean Soup

Another week is planned.
I will be making more of the Lazy Granola, it is a hit at my house.
I haven't checked out the Pinching Your Pennies site yet, but I am going to put off shopping as long as I can this week. I did have to stop into Ridley's on Saturday for sour cream and my daughter suggested we walk past the 'reduced isle' as she puts it and they had gallons of Viva 1% milk for only $1 each, we bought two.

Baking Success!

The bread came out of the oven looking so good and the feel of the loaf is tender soft, unlike any bread I have taken out of my oven before. I am so congested that my smeller is not working. I love the smell of fresh baked bread. It truly is a comfort smell just as eating the fresh bread is a comfort food.

It gets better! As I sliced the bread I was amazed at how soft and moist it was. Everyone was loving it at my house. I made two loaves of wheat and one loaf of white. My son who is not the biggest fan of wheat was enjoying a fresh slice. You have got to try it.

Click HERE to read the recipe posting.

The next bread on my list to make is Cinnamon Drop bread. Yummmmm! I have found a site to order the cinnamon chips, 12oz for $3.50. A $65 order receives free shipping, anyone want to order with me? I haven't checked out everything they have to order yet. Check out The Prepared Pantry and see if there is anything else you would like and we can all put in a big order with free shipping.

Thanks Everyday Food Storage. I bought her I Can't Believe It's Food Storage recipe book/guide last summer and I love it! It is only $12.21 on Amazon.

Dough Enhancers for making Delicious Bread: Food Storage Recipes

I am on the quest to make the perfect sandwich bread for my family. Half of us love white and the other half love wheat, so I need to perfect both types. My mom had given me some gluten and dough enhancer a while back and they really help your loaves turn out beautiful. The down side for me is that dough enhancer is expensive. I have found a really good 4 minute Vlog at Everyday Food Storage which details why you might want to use a dough enhancer and how to make it yourself inexpensively.
She also has a Vlog on Making Bread, I will be watch this one after work today. I am also attaching her Bread Making Q&A posting. One thing I really like about her blog and recipes is that she is using food storage items. She is teaching us to use our storage more so that rotation happens and we save money while stocking up ourselves.

I will report back on how using her recipes and techniques work for me.
Have a great day!

P.S. I know some of you out there have probably already perfected your families homemade bread. Please share your tips and recipes with us. Post a comment or email me at and I will make it a guest post. Thanks, Shiree

Getting Started at Walmart

Kristen at Couponing to Disney has a new Vlog on shopping at Walmart. There is a lot of good information that she covers, I learned that Walmart price matches store brand for store brand. That was interesting to me. Take ten minutes and listen to all her good info!

She has also updated her list of under a dollar deals for Walmart. Check it out HERE.

Free Colgate at Smiths

Colgate is not my first choice of toothpaste, but brushing my teeth is not a luxury it is a necessity so I will be picking some up for my family.

This was posted on A Thrifty Mom:

One of my readers let me know that she just got back from Smith’s. They’re having a sale 10/$10 on Colgate toothpaste. Combine with the $1 off coupon in the 1/17 Smart Source & it’s free!

I do not have a ad to check the selections that are on sale…so just make sure they are the ones listed on the coupon. What a thrifty deal…I love free toothpaste!

Week 2 - Eating from the Pantry Challenge

Last Sunday as I went through the ads I knew I would spend more than $30 and that I would shop more than one store. I feel no remorse though, ha ha. I did only shop one day, I figured I should stick to some part of my goals.
Here is what I did:
At Walgreen's I bought cleaning supplies that were BOGO, lotions on the J&J rebate deal, and Loreal makeup. When all was said and done I spent $77.08 with $52.87 in savings and I have $15.49 coming to me in rebates. This still is still sounding like a lot of money to me until I look at the amount of product I bought. I am set in cleansers, make-up, facial cleansers, and lotions for months.
I then stopped at Smith's and bought the 5lb bag of shredded Tillamook cheese for $8.99 with my $1 coupon from
I had to pick up pictures from Sam's Club and also picked up 3 gallons of milk, 4 pack of butter, tortillas, 5dz eggs, & a 2pk of chips for $64.37.

I blew the budget!

With that out there I have a renewed commitment this week. I know that I will be needing milk, brick of cheese, & lunch meat from Sam's Club. I will be keeping to my $30 budget. I decided on this amount knowing that I get so much produce for free by being a site coordinator for Bountiful Baskets. By the way, they are looking for people willing to be site coordinators and opening new sites. Leave me a message or email me at for mor information.

Here are the meals we enjoyed this past week:

Meat Loaf w/mashed potatoes & gravy, brussel sprouts, and fruit salad

Pigs in a blanket w/ potato wedges & fruit

* I have used the Betty Crocker Pizza Dough recipe for decades for not only my pizza dough but for my scones and pigs in a blanket.

Shepard's Pie, everyone has their favorite recipe.

Baked Spaghetti- I do not add the onions or the green pepper, by family request, and I had cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom soup. I also add more cheese.

Chicken & Rice casserole from my freezer :)

Sloppy Joes with the peppers left in strips, so those picky people could pull them out. I also made homemade buns, baked potatoes(one was a sweet potato for me, yum!), and sliced mangoes.

Cream of Broccoli Soup w/scones

Here is what we will be having this week:

Taco salad

Meatball Soup, I made & froze the meatballs when I made last weeks meatloaf.

Beef & Broccoli
, I'm going to try out Utah Deal Diva's recipe

Traditional Roast Dinner

Chicken Noodle Soup, homemade of course. I will post that recipe with pictures on making noodles later this week.

Spaghetti w/ salad & fresh French Bread

Leftovers will be happening one night:)

This is a hard challenge when you don't want to miss out on the stock up items your family needs. I like knowing that it can be done and all the meals that can be made form our pantry and freezer. I am going to make a list of our families top five favorite meals and make sure I have everything to make them twelve times. It is a good place to start to insure a well rounded three month food supply of dinners.

I have also had some success with making sandwich bread, I have struggled in the past with it. We had delicious french toast with it.

Behr Paint Rebate at Home Depot

I have a Home Depot gift card and my plan has been for paint. I have picked up the sample chips and made my decision. What good fortune that I can also get a $5 rebate on each gallon, which will go directly into my families Disney trip fund. Behr is offering a $5 rebate on 1-gallon or $20 rebate on 5-gallons of paint purchased at Home Depot. Read the printable rebate form for details. Paint must be purchased by January 18, and rebate submitted by February 17.
Read more HERE about how I'm putting away money for our Disney trip.

Thanks, Moneywise Moms.

Help for Haiti

I can hardly stand to watch the news, I am a major bawl baby. All those poor people who are suffering and losing loved ones and their homes. I wish there was more I could personally do, but I am giving you a link to have funds donated. Many bloggers are donating money to help add to the relief of those in Haiti. You just have to leave a comment and they will donate money on our behalf.

Money Saving Mom
has organized and is hosting this event. Please visit her blog as there are more opportunities to donate!

No one understands tight financial times more than I do, but I believe that we can all do something to help. I am grateful that I belong to a church who is always one of the first responders to any world crisis.

KUTV is partnering with the American Red Cross to raise money for the relief efforts in Haiti.
There are three ways you can help in their day-long donation drive:

By Phone:
All you have to do is call and someone will take your donation over the phone. The numbers are 801-908-0680 or 877-908-0680. Volunteers will be taking donations all day until 6 p.m.

By Text:
Any cell phone user who wishes to help can simply text “HAITI” to “90999” to make a $10 donation to Red Cross. The donation will be charged to your cell phone bill. There is no fee for this service. You can donate even if you are out of your allotted texts or even if you do not have a text messaging plan.

On Line:

Money raised will be given to the International Response Fund for Haiti.

Bryan Adams & Housework

I am now just going to turn up the tunes on Pandora, I get tired of the radio stations. Pandora is internet radio that you customize what you want to listen to. You sign up for a free account and receive 40 hours of music listening per month. There are a few commercials, nothing like the radio stations though. I will be listening to my Bryan Adams station loud while I am cleaning the house, I have the next two hours uninterrupted! Sweet!
