Super Savings Saturday: The “Weekly-Report-Postponed-for-a-Wedding” Edition

As most of you know, my sister is getting married tomorrow so blogging has been on the very back burner the past few days as I’m knee deep (or maybe up to my eyeballs?!) in helping with wedding preparations, decorations, and so forth. I’m loving every minute of it, though!

We just got home from the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and last-minute decorating/organizing and I’m heading to bed since I need to have myself and two of my little ones at the church bright and early tomorrow morning to get ready for pictures.

I had planned to write about a big purchase we were able to make from an Amish bulk store this week using the money we saved by not doing our regular grocery shopping trip, but I’m going to save that to share early next week in favor of getting a little bit more shut-eye tonight.

Stay tuned for my full report on our savings from this past week after the whirlwind wedding weekend is over! I’m also hoping I can have my sister guest post on how she pulled off a beautiful wedding on a dime–but I’ll let her life settle down a bit first!

Frugal Fun: Grocery Ad Playtime Menu (Guest Post)

Marie from Make and Takes shared this fun (and frugal!) idea for a way to recycle your old grocery ads into playtime menus for your children:

Grocery Ad Playtime Menu

Supplies for Grocery Ad Menus:

  • grocery ads – the kind that come in the mail
  • scissors, glue, color pencils, art paper

Menu Supplies

First, gather all your grocery ads. Let the kids look through and see what items might be good to have in their menu, then cut them out. If your child is ready to use scissors, go for it but with supervision if they're small. Or you can have them point to the items they want and you can cut them out.

Cut Grocery Ads

Next, fold a piece of art paper in half vertically. Glue the cut out food items onto the paper in a line. Now write in each price.

Write Menus

My son loved making up how much everything cost. He wanted to make the steak "1 Free" and the ice cream is $20 because it's sooo good. We even named our restaurant, LeBaron's Family Restaurant, with "Todays Special" as Shrimp, my son's favorite food. Have fun playing Restaurant!
