I don’t have to tell ya’ll about the cost of living 🤯
We are fine but we have 2 trips planned and needed some home repairs.
So, to help ease our pocketbook a bit, I plan on us eating at home all of October- hence the phrase I made up- Eat at home-tober, kind of like Vlogtober, but I doubt it catches on.
Groceries are expensive but eating out is even more expensive.
I’ve bought groceries, most of what we should need this month, from the commissary, Kroger and Walmart.
I’ll need to plan ahead to keep this going all month.
I plan on blogging about it all month if you want to follow along or join in————the more, the merrier, right?
Today, 3 grands were here so we had homemade pizza.
I let the bread machine knead and raise the dough. I used the 2 pound measurements.
This is a good, basic crust. It rolls out easily and thin, like we like it.
Baked pizzas with fresh fruit and veggies
All 5 of enjoyed it lots!
I was thinking the hummingbirds had migrated already and then I saw one yesterday.
So I washed and refilled the feeders,
I live in the light green belt. We could see hummingbirds until October 25, according to this graph.
That’s much later than I would of expected. I guess we will see but there is fresh nectar in my backyard to fuel any hummingbirds that stop by.
Last week I did a little coupon shopping at Walgreens - these sales have expired
Cost was about $27 and I earned $21 for next time.
I’ve built up a laundry products and paper goods stocks pile in just 2 weeks.
The candy corn is for a grandson who thought it was a bad deal that I didn’t include candy corn in my fall decorating.
This week, I have those $21 in Walgreens rewards to spend.
I’m not sure what I’ll use them on but I may wait and go Saturday and use this coupon-
Any purchase that is $45 - and that is usually before coupons, etc- will earn $20 in Walgreens cash.
They have many of their vitamins buy 1 get 1 - hopefully some will still be in stock Saturday.
We will need to replenish our vitamin supply one way or the other anyway. M
But if you plan on doing coupon deals, please get advice from an expert on YouTube or IG to get the maximum deals.
