A great way to save money is NOT to eat out or order in when you are too tired or don’t have a lot of time to cook. Freezer Cooking or Bulk Cooking is a great way to have wholesome meals on hand at any time!

Plus you can use items you are able to stock up on for cheap {with coupons and sales} but don’t want to eat 5 days a week.

Rebekah gives you 10 Freezer Cooking Tips to help you get started with freezer cooking! Plus she has some post about her experience with Freezer Cooking in the past.

Anyone do Freezer Cooking? I am definitely going to start, even though I have been saying that 😉 I am!  It sounds like such a great way to save myself some time each night!

This is a DIY project that I am excited to try out in my boys’ playroom! I would love to make the bottom half of their walls in that room chalkboard paint, but it can be expensive! Plus I am not sure I want the walls to be black or green, making your own you can choose your color paint!

Idea Room has a way to make your own Chalkboard Paint with just two ingredients: paint (of any color or type) and some Non-Sanded Tile Grout {for around $4 at home improvement stores}

See how to make it plus a really cute idea to make chalk rocks HERE

Katie from Coupon Katarina gives up a few tips of the trade on how to save when buying fresh produce! Make sure to head over here to read even more great tips and details!

Save on Fresh Produce!

Use Coupons!

Yep you can find coupons for produce! There have been coupons for berries, salad, tomatoes, potatoes, and pineapples! I always highlight these coupons so make sure to print them quick if I do because they won’t be along for long!

Right now you can head over to coupons.com and see if there are any new ones that have popped up! 🙂

Know what’s in season

Its gonna be cheaper if its in season and not being shipped from across the globe

Look for manager closeout or soon to expire foods

Use them quick for some great cheap finds!

Don’t buy EVERYTHING Organic

Know the dirty dozen and try to stick with organic on these: Nectarines, Celery, Pears, Peaches, Apples, Cherries, Strawberries, Imported Grapes, Spinach, Potatoes, Bell Peppers and Red Raspberries

Other fruits and veggies have a “protective” shell or aroma that doesn’t need sprayed with pesticides

Shop at Aldi

Aldi does have very good prices on produce, you can see my video on Aldi here

What to do with those expired coupons! Help Military Families!

I have been looking for more information on this program, and Cindy, over at Living Rich with Coupons had all the details! So I am excited to share it with you! My brother is currently in Afghanistan so this mean alot to me to be able to help out other military families!

The military commissary allows military families to use expired coupon for up to 6 months past the expiration date. They need your coupons that you will not be using or have recently expired. They are looking for only manufacturer coupons and coupons that are not more then 1 month past the expiration date (to allow for delivery & sorting time).  Sorting the coupons and placing them in a ziploc bag would make is so much easier for then to sort through them quickly. You can ship them to:

Coupon Program
