Why my kids don’t allow couponing


People love coupons, in fact one site reports that anywhere for 81%-96% of Americans report using coupons. If that is the case we are in the minority, but why? Clipping coupons is usually the first thing that comes to mind when people think of saving on the grocery budget. Why don’t we use them more? Continue reading “Why my kids don’t allow couponing”

Did you know we are on Yummly? #recipes


Have you ever heard of Yummly?

Have you ever wanted to save a link to a recipe you wanted to try? It’s kind of a hassle to do it in your browser. With Yummly it is really simple just look for the ‘Yum button’ on the post and click it and save it to your own collection. I just installed a button yummly_button on my site. You’ll find it at the bottom of each post. Even if the site doesn’t have such a button you have the option of installing a button on your favorite browser too. This allows you to capture links to just about any recipe you find on the web. NICE.

Its a really great application for capturing recipes you find on the web, actually one of the top. I’ve been using it for some time to capture recipes from all of the web. Other sites exist to do similar things but Yummly is purpose built for recipes and has a great community to go along with it. It is the only one I have found that allows you to include or exclude specific ingredients and perform searches according to your particular diet preferences.

Recently, though I found out that it is possible to become a ‘publisher.’ Hopefully by doing so it will make it easier for those outside the WordPress community to find the recipe’s you and I have found so enjoyable.

Budget tips for grocery shopping


Have you noticed how much of your household budget goes toward groceries? Grocery shopping is a significant expense for most, but there are ways to make it more affordable.

Menu planning is integral to succeeding in managing this expense. In April we discovered just how important it really is. We didn’t have time to make our menu plan and shopping list and as a result spent almost as much on two on the fly meals as we did for the remaining planned meals.

Here are some money saving tips Continue reading “Budget tips for grocery shopping”

Planning is Key to Success! — jeanne in the kitchen


The weeks I have had the most success sticking to my meal plan are the ones where I have planned and prepped ahead. While it does take a little time up front, I enjoy not having to cook for myself every day and having grab and go options. So, at my place Sundays are for […]
