This mama loves finding quality items at great prices. Don’t we all? From clothes to food I am always happy to save whenever I can. Grocery shopping is a big part of our weekly activities. Most times, I find myself picking a few things here and there but Sunday is usually the day we complete our weekly shopping.

As our family grew, I started to find not only ways to save on groceries, but also finding places that offer competitive prices.
So are you ready to find out how I save money while grocery shopping? Here are a few tips

What can I say, I am a foodie. As much as I love take-outs, nothing beats a good homemade meal. Most days after picking the kids from school you’ll find me in my kitchen trying to figure out dinner. I do have weekly menus that I try to follow to the teeth, but there are days where I just hop on the internet to find something to make. I am one of those cooks that hardly measures anything.If I make it once, I can make it next time with no measuring involved. For the sake of this post, I made sure everything is measured to make it easy for you to follow.This stuffed salmon is one of my absolute recipes. It easy to make and takes less than an hour. Even my husband, who’s only specialty is boiling eggs can do this one. Find the ingredients and instructions below. Read More »

I love when these two can get along and watch a show from beginning to end without any fight. It’s called the power of the Ipad and Netflix. Everything has changed from when we were young. Every kid now has one of these little devices on hand to keep them busy. As much as we try to reduce their online intake this is how things are headed now. They spend as much time with these little characters on their Ipad as they would with their friends. For that reason, it’s so important that we suggest shows with positive characters to help reinforce good values. I am sure you are aware that most time kids want to watch everything except what matches their proper age rating. Read More »
