Still No Baby?


That's right, still no baby!  My due date is in a week, so we are expecting this little one to be arriving anytime now, though I have to admit I'm surprised we've made it this far!  I am definitely feeling ready at this point...

I thought I'd just check in and let you know what the plan looks like for the near future after little one arrives.  I will take a short break from most blog posting for at least a week, longer if need be just to get settled.  I hope to get back to posting grocery store deals as soon as possible after a week or so, and other deals will likely take longer to get back up to speed.

I am excited to enter this new phase of life and motherhood!  And, as much as I love to write here and love to teach and equip others in saving a buck, my family is and will be my first priority and keeping that in check may take more time away from FM Cheapskate in the coming months.

That being said...  Do you want to contribute to the frugal community here at FM Cheapskate?  Did you know you can post right on the FM Cheapskate Facebook page?  if you have a question or a deal to share, this is a great way to join the conversation!  I'd also love to hear your ideas that could be presented in a Guest Post or your Money-Saving Tips that I can share with other readers!  Email me at fmcheapskate@gmail.com and let's talk!

Thanks in advance for bearing with me, being excited with me and for all your support already!  I promise to let you all know as soon as I have news to share.  :)

FREE Jar of Better Than Bouillon (Facebook Offer)


Head over and "like" the Better Than Bouillon Facebook page to request a FREE Jar of Better than Bouillon soup base!  I requested mine successfully, but it looks like the tab has been deactivated while they fix a bug.  According to the wall of the page, the giveaway should be back up anytime, so check again soon if you're not able to get through tonight!

Pantry Challenge Menu Plan + Plan to Shop!

Photo credit
As you know, we've been trying to eat from the pantry intentionally this month by creating a meal plan. It has been great so far, but another hiccup taught me a valuable lesson last week.

I mentioned in the Cash Wise Weekly Deals that chili sounded like a good part of the menu plan for the week, since beans were the free item and Fritos were on sale. (I can't eat chili without Fritos, of course.)   The problem didn't arise til Wednesday when I decided to make the chili (we were feeding guests that night), but I only had time to stop by Hornbacher's. Unfortunately, the Fritos and beans were on sale at Cash Wise, and cheese (which we were completely out of, of course) was on sale at SunMart. I obviously did not plan that meal well, because I didn't plan to shop at SunMart or Cash Wise til the end of the week. I ended up getting a better deal on Shopper's Value Fritos ($1.50!) at Hornbacher's and spent the difference on a small block of cheese that was definitely not on sale.  And, I already had beans in the pantry.

Lesson learned: you can't use it in your meal plan til you bring it home from the store.  Obvious?  Not so much to me apparently.  :)  Here's this week's plan:

Breakfasts:
Strawberry Spinach Peach Smoothies
Waffles
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
Breakfast Burritos
Cereal, Yogurt, Fruit

Lunches:
Grilled Cheese, Tomato Soup
Wraps, Sandwiches
Salads
Leftovers

Dinners:
Vegetable Stir Fry with Rice
Chicken Blurkey (Turkey Blurkey made with chicken.  I know that doesn't explain it well.  It's a family thing and others have compared it to Turkey ala King?), Biscuits, Watermelon
Chicken Fajitas
Homemade Pizza (Crust recipe found here)
Homemade Macaroni and Cheese, roasted potatoes (Still searching for the best homemade Mac and Cheese recipe - anyone have one to share?)

Snacks:
Cucumbers, Carrots, Applesauce, Cantaloupe, Muffins, Energy BitesZucchini Cookies

My husband and I did the preparation for our meals for the whole week this afternoon, to alleviate some stress through the week.  We also preserved quite a bit of fresh produce this weekend and I baked 5 dozen muffins to last us awhile in the freezer.  I hope to post more details on our freezer cooking adventure later this week.  We'll see how the week goes...

Care to share your menu plan?  Are you eating from the pantry?  If so, what creative uses have you come up with for items we all probably have sitting in the pantry?

Pretzelmaker Buy One, Get One FREE Tuesdays!


Head out to Pretzelmaker any remaining Tuesday in September (9/20, 9/27) to take advantage of Twisted Tuesday, where Pretzels are Buy One, Get One FREE, no coupon needed!

One Last Facebook Giveaway!


I've been hosting a round of giveaways for all of you 1600+ awesome Facebook fans and it's time to do the last one for now.  This may be my favorite, as I know how practical it is!  For this giveaway, 2 winners will receive $15 Gift Certificates to use on printer ink refills at Rapid Refill in Fargo!

I'm often asked the question "How do you save on printer ink for printing all those coupons?"  Rapid Refill is one of the ways that I do just that.   Not only can I buy a black ink refill for my HP for $10 regularly priced (price varies depending on your printer model), but Rapid Refill regularly emails coupons to those who sign up for their email list, so I can usually get an even better deal!


Two winners will receive $15 Gift Certificates, compliments of Rapid Refill in Fargo.  Rapid Refill will ship them to you where ever you live, but they are valid only at the Fargo location.

Can't wait to save on printer ink?  Head over to Great Plains Live, where you can buy $15 Rapid Refill Gift Certificates for only $9 anytime!  An extra $1 ships it to you, or you can pick it up downtown at the AM 1100 The Flag station on Broadway for free shipping.  Not a bad way to stack your savings on printer ink!

Giveaway is open to those who "like" FM Cheapskate on Facebook. Please enter using the form below!  I'll draw and announce a winner Monday night around 8:00 PM.  As long as the form is open, feel free to enter!

Pantry Challenge Menu Plan + Freezer Cooking!

I'm still menu planning and trying to eat from the pantry this week though I'm a few days late in posting my plans!

I was able to do a nice freezer cooking afternoon with a friend this last weekend and we stored away more than 10 meals each, plus the fixings for a few more. I can tell we're getting close to this little baby's arrival and so after the weekend I'm trying to slow down and rest more as well as take care of odds and ends around the house. Until baby makes her arrival, here is the plan:

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps
Dilled Chicken Salad (part of our freezer cooking was cooking several whole chickens in the crock pot and freezing the cooked meat in portions for recipes like this one)
Make Ahead Lunch Wraps (we altered this recipe a bit)
Wild Rice Hotdish (made ahead in the freezer)
Chili, Cornbread
Tuna Casserole, Green Beans from the garden (didn't get to this last week)

Are you menu planning along with me? How is it going? Since I'm trying to use what I have in the pantry, I enjoy the feeling of knowing I'm using things I've purchased at great prices ahead of time. Definitely the hardest part for me is sitting down at the beginning of the week and going through what I have and trying to be somewhat creative in meal planning without buying too many extra ingredients.

What about you? What challenges have you come across and what is working for you?
