So, this week is our last full week at home – then things are going to get a bit crazy. LOL! I have already started a meal plan for our 15 days out of town AND am working on cleaning out the fridge and pantry of things that just won’t last.
When you go on vacation, do you try to give the house a good scrubbing first? We do! We also set off bug & flea bombs, drain the water heater, unplug most items (stove, TV, microwave, washer & dryer, etc), and crank the ac down. We don’t turn it off because it isn’t worth the extra money it will take to try to get our house cooled back off upon our return.
Be sure to print out your coupons this week! Remember, you should be able to print them twice.
Ok, on to my menu planning ideas for this week:
Monday: Leftover Kelli’s Spaghetti
Tuesday: Girl Scout Stew – using the leftover spaghetti sauce… yeah, I made a TON
Wednesday: Chicken Broccoli Casserole
Thursday: BBQ Pork Chops, Potatoes & Cheese, Corn on the Cob
Friday: Movie Night (Loaded Potato Skins, Chicken Nuggets, Pizza Rolls, etc)
