Aldi was my favorite store this week! Their produce was super cheap and I based a few of my meals around that to save money. I bought two heads of cabbage, which was probably way too much, but it’ll bulk up our dinners nicely! I don’t know about you, but when I eat meals, I like to have a LOT of food. I can’t just eat a small portion and declare myself done; I want my plate filled with food that’ll keep me full for a long time, and I do that by adding a ton of vegetables. That’s why you see me buying an entire freezer’s worth of frozen vegetables (like you’ll see below)!

I’m trying to take advantage of Ibotta this month, too. You can get a $10.00 bonus in March when you redeem 15 rebates, and another $2.00 bonus this weekend only (ends Tuesday). I had my list all planned out, but when I got to Meijer Friday night, one of the rebates had disappeared (too many redemptions), and some of the items weren’t available at my store. So I missed my $2.00 bonus by one item; I had to head to Wal Mart to get my last item for the bonus! If you haven’t signed up yet, you can do so here to start earning money on your next shopping trip.

I'm making spiralized salad (carrots, zucchini and yellow squash if I can find it)with chicken and avocado lemon dressing. We made it a few weeks ago and inhaled it!!

That sounds amazing! I need to get a better spiralizer to make things easier. =)
