I just read Jenny's comment on my last post. I have since calmed down a bit, and with all of our car trouble, it seems like maybe the Lord was helping me know it was ok to take out student loans.
Anyway, Karen Kent told me about a great site called savvy shopper deals. It is through the daily herald, and I already found tons of great coupons. They list the coupons in ABC order, and you can find almost anything that is on you shopping list. You just have to make sure the store accepts them. You also can sign up for emails that will tell you about the great deals!!
We don't get paid until Friday, so I'm trying to be really creative with our meals. We have potatoes, lots of rice, frozen veggies, and things like that.
Tonight, I'm thinking of making wheat pancakes with hash browns.
We have a steak leftover from the Dearden cow, so maybe tomorrow we'll have mashed potatoes with corn and meat.
Thursday we'll be in SL, so maybe our families will feed us.
Friday...I'll have to brainstorm something. Maybe I can use leftover meat in a stir fry with rice?
I'll go shopping then, so I need to plan out the next 2 weeks worth of meals. I'll post what I plan just to give ideas to anyone who happens to read this!
