Hope It Taste Better Than It Looks

I was so excited to try out my new silicon flexipan. I made a Spice/Pumpkin cake. It is only a box of spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. It didn't come out of the pan well. I think I should have let it cool first. It is 5 Weight Watcher Points Plus so I don't know if it is worth it.

Kroger Paid Me to Take 10 Packs of Cheese!!

Kroger has a GREAT sale this week: Buy 10 (particular) items and get $5 off your order. Kraft singles are part of the sale. If you buy ten, they are only 99 cents each. Wait, it gets better! There is a coupon booklet this is a display near the eggs at Publix that has a $1.50/2 coupon for Kraft cheese making them 24cents each! Wait, it betters better yet! When you buy they you will pay $2.40 but a catalina will print out that is worth $5 off your next order! So you get paid $2.60 to take 10 packs of Kraft cheese slices off their hands! I LOVE better than FREE!!

Eating from the pantry Challenge is hosting a Eating from the Pantry Challenge. I think I am gonna give it a try!

Each of us is making our own rules. I plan on spending no more than $25 per week on groceries and using the stockpile that I have accumulated. However, I will also be using my WIC coupons. I hope to take pictures of my freezers and pantry before we get started. I plan on posting my menus as we go along. I hope to also post about my shopping trips.
