Happy Prime Day, friends!
In case you missed it, I’ll be posting all the Prime Day deals for meal planning tools and kitchen gadgets over on this post. So if you’re looking for cool things to add to your kitchen, head on over and check out my post throughout the day!
So I’ve run into an interesting problem. Typically, I buy a lot of my paper goods- toilet paper, paper towels, tissues- from Sam’s Club with gift cards from Swagbucks. I earn about $25.00 a month, which is usually enough to get us through and buy what we need.
But recently, Swagbucks hasn’t been very kind to me. I have an old phone where I run their video apps, but the videos stop playing due to ads that I need to manually click out of. So since I can’t run them all day, I’m not earning any Swagbucks. And I’ve had no time to take surveys.
Now we’re slowly running out of supplies and we actually have to start using our own money again. *Gasp* I’m considering taking $5.00 every week out of our budget and using that once a month to buy what we need. That’s probably what I’ll do for now, until I can find another solution.
Also- I’m doing a freezer meal session this week! I’m using 5 rolls of my ground turkey from the freezer to make a week’s worth of meals and put together a plan for you all. Some of the items I bought this week, like the canned goods and bell peppers/onions, are being used for that. So look forward to seeing this new plan in the next couple weeks!
