Thoughtful Links I Love

Links I Love

Some weeks, it is the recipes I discover online that excite me. Other weeks, I am challenged by the encouragement I find online. Here’s a collection of some of the most recent thoughtful links I found. I hope some of them speak to you, too!

Jesenia of the Latina Homemaker shared how being too busy can cost you money. I’ve been there and done this. It’s a great reminder to remember that our time can indeed cost us money.

I loved this guest post at Living Well, Spending Less about 3 ways to let go of Mom guilt. It’s an article that all Moms should read.

Lisa-Jo had another marvelous post as she reminded us there’s no such thing as perfect people or perfect hospitality. Let’s open the door just the way we are.

Along similar lines, Crystal encouraged us to stop photo shopping our lives. It’s important to live and be real. There’s a time and place to worry about the messes of life.

Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy talked about how sometimes we simply need to show up. It’s true. There are times when the casseroles and plans don’t matter and we just need to be there. Remember this.

Ruth told her story and how we can minister when there is a miscarriage. It’s honest and written with compassion.

Andrea shared her thoughts on intentional free time…and why she doesn’t sleep when the baby sleeps. Whether you have a baby or not, we can all be intentional with our time.

Tim shared 5 changes he’d make if he could parent again. As someone who is passionate about growing leaders, I appreciated his insights.

Obviously, I’ve been thinking a lot about letting down pretenses and parenting. Which one of these links made you think the most?

End of February Shopping for MOPS

My end of the month shopping found me watching my budget carefully as I picked up the last items for our MOPS Freezer Cooking Session. This week, our MOPS groups did some cooking ahead for the freezer. We were each in charge of a recipe / meal and brought all the ingredients for the other ladies to make our meal. However, we all bought and prepped our own meat for all the casseroles before hand. When all was said and done, we ended up with 6 main dishes (9 x 13 size), a peanut butter pie, a hash brown breakfast casserole and a pan of scalloped potatoes. My recipe? Poppy seed chicken. That is the reason you’ll see so many cans of cream of chicken soup in the picture below! They were on a slight sale but not like Thanksgiving sale prices. Sigh. Oh well. I bought them anyway! The things I’ll do for my MOPS friends. :-)

I started this week with a quick run to our bulk store for poppy seeds (for poppy seed chicken), buttermilk powder (to attempt making my own ranch mix / dressing) and whole wheat flour (to make graham crackers). The graham crackers were a fail. More on that later! At the bulk store, I spent $6.10.

Grabill Bulk Store - 2/20/15 - $6.10

Then, Nathan and I stopped by Sam’s Club on our way to visit his Great-Grandma. Their boneless skinless chicken breasts are normally $1.88/lb which is a great price – plus I had received a $3 off coupon via email. That took my 6 pounds of chicken down to $1.38/lb! Yay! While I was there, I noticed strawberries were $4.98 for 2 pounds BUT I had also received a $2 off coupon via email. That took the price down to $1.49/lb – which was cheaper than frozen at $2/lb. I bought a box for my husband’s breakfast smoothies. At Sam’s, I spent $11.88. Aren’t you impressed that I walked out with only 2 items? It was Nathan’s bedtime when we got home so I didn’t get a picture.

After I all that, I still needed some more items for poppy seed chicken. I headed to Kroger where they had their sour cream on sale for $1. I love their natural sour cream with no artificial ingredients! Half gallons of milk were also on sale for $1. I bought 2 containers of skim milk for us to drink. I also bought 3 containers of 2% so I could make more vanilla yogurt in my slow cooker. Well, I made one half gallon this week and froze the other two to make more yogurt when we need it.

Also at Kroger, I picked up several free items. I picked up my free Starburst gum and free chocolate egg, thanks to recent Friday Freebies. I had also won a free container of Planters peanuts and a free container of Country Time lemonade in the latest Kroger sweepstakes. At Kroger, I spent $12 – and saved $20.04 or 62%.

Kroger - 2/24/15 - $12 - 62% savings

Finally, I finished out my shopping trip at Meijer where I bought Campbells Cream of Chicken soup on sale for $1 as part of the “Buy 10 for $10, Get the 11th free.” I also bought margarine and one more box of Ritz crackers for the poppy seed chicken. Finally I bought 6 lbs of apples, since they were on sale for $1.50/3 lbs. Someone left a catalina in the cart I used for two free big rolls of Meijer paper towels if I spent $10. I did – and used the coupon. Yay for free paper towels! At Meijer, I spent $23.17.

Meijer - 2/24/15 - $23.17

This brings my shopping total for the week to $53.15. That brings my total for February to $191.76, which is below my $200 budget! How did you do budget wise this month?
