Things are really getting interesting where I live. It couldn’t be a better time to be a Budget Smart Girl. One local supermarket’s been printing a coupon book for things like frozen foods, breads, produce. Now their biggest rival has jumped on the bandwagon. Last week their coupon book arrived in the mail. I noticed some coupons are for exactly the same products as the other supermarket but their prices were even lower. I guess when they’re fighting for our dollars, we win.
It’s been another busy week for me, work wise and trying to catch up with gardening chores after a week of rain every single day. I’ve been planning easy to put together meals and came up with two new one. I’ll be sharing one of them later this week, the other one in this month’s newsletter.
Speaking of gardening. I’m going to try growing asparagus and potatoes. I’ll be ordering my supplies from www.gardeners.com. Even if you’re not in the market for gardening stuff, check out their two contests. One is for rain barrels. I’ve been meaning to buy one of those for a couple of years now. And as the Budget Smart Girl’s philosophy is why buy it when you can try and win it, you can guess I entered the contest. Plus, if you click on ‘growing vegetables’ you can win a $250 vegetable garden kit.
This week on Budget Smart Girl-Last week I gave you some suggestions for eating out while you’re on a budget, this week, I’ll tell you about ways to cut the cost of meals when you’re on vacation.
Also, quick tips, short cuts to get you out of the kitchen and keep you on budget. Plus, a recipe that just about anyone can make…it’s really budget friendly too.
