FRIDAY MEANS MEGA SWAG BUCKS!

Friday, January 15, 2010 | | 0 comments

A couple months ago Tori shared with you about a new way to search the internet called Swagbucks. You get paid in 'swag bucks' to search the internet the same way you already search for things. After you earn your swagbucks you can redeem them for gift cards and other prizes from the swag store. You can read my post about swagbucks here for all the details.

As if it was already sweet enough to get rewarded for doing something you are already doing, how about having a MEGA swag buck day!
'Every Friday, Swagbucks gives you a chance to win huge, gargantuan, oodles, tons of....Mega Swag Bucks with your searches. From 3 to 100 Swag Bucks, we give away up to 10,000 Swag Bucks in Mega Bills every Friday!'

So, make sure on Friday's you do some MEGA searching to win MEGA swag bucks! Be sure to check out our Swag Bucks tips here.
If you don't already have Swag Bucks go here to sign up. After you sign up check your e-mail and they will let you start searching!Check out the SwagBuck store and share with us what you are saving up for!
Tori and I are both super excited at how fast we are earning swag bucks just by searching the internet. We have been debating if we should use them towards air line flights and take a vacation. How many have you earned so far? Have you "purchased" anything with them yet?

Recipes Using Sale Items

This week at Smiths, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are on sale for .75 cents. Here is an easy recipe I love to use these for.

"CRESCENT ROLLS STUFFED WITH CHICKEN"-
or as we call them at my house
"CHICKEN PILLOWS"
4 chicken breasts
3/4 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp. butter, softened
1 very sm. onion, finely chopped
2 pkg. crescent rolls
1/2 c. herb stuffing (or bread crumbs)
Melted butter
Directions
Bake chicken breasts in oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes (or just brown it it bite size pieces in a frying pan if you dont have much time). Cut into bite-size pieces. Divide each package of crescent rolls into 4 sections and press perforated lines together.
Mix the first 4 ingredients (chicken, cream cheese, butter, and onion) together. Place chicken mix in center of rectangular dough. Wrap dough around chicken mixture and press sides together.
Dip chicken roll upside down in melted butter and dip again into small bowl of bread crumbs. Place on cookie sheet and cook in oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until golden brown.
NOTE: Sprinkle garlic powder, seasoning salt, and coarse ground black pepper over chicken before baking, if you desire additional seasoning."
If I dont have bread crumbs on hand crushed ritz crackers work great too. Mushrooms inside are something else you can add. WARNING: If your new years resolution is to diet-- this one is not a very low cal recipe, but it sure it tasty! :) Enjoy.

Meal Planning Resolution

Wednesday, January 13, 2010 | | 5 comments
( Photo courtesy of This Week for Dinner)

This year one of my resolutions is to be a little bit more solid in the area of meal planning. Some weeks I have done really well in the past, but then there is those other weeks where I didnt even try. I was looking for recipes and found a site I really like called "this week for dinner". The site is run by a woman named Jane, who has a post DARING her readers to make meal planning a resolution. I am going to take her dare! If you are wondering, while I am typing this I am actually thinking- "oh boy- publically admitted it, now I have to follow it! yikes....


I am not a super decisive person (Tori is probably laughing as she reads this- I am more of a super undecisive person.) This for me means, meal planning is something I struggle with because I worry that I wont be "in the mood" for what I have planned for dinner. I do know however, that it is one very effective way of cutting down the grocery budget. When you plan the meals you are able to make sure you are using up what you buy, and not having tons of extra "this and that". When in addition you are following the grocery smarts way of shopping, suddenly the grocery bills can really be dropping. On "This Week for Dinner" she gives some other reasons to meal plan. The reason I love the most is you are not stressed when its dinner time. You have a plan, and all you have to do is follow it!


On her site Jane has a free download available for a meal planning sheet from "Whoops Bunny" that is sooo cute. I am totally a sucker for cool/cute paper products. I love notepads, cards, wrapping paper, etc.

So, this is one freebie I LOVE, plus it looks really cute hanging on my magnet board.
To check her site, and access the free downloadable meal planning sheet click here.

We want to hear from YOU!

Before I learned about grocery smarts I would DREAD going grocery shopping. I hated hearing the total at the checkout. After learning about the system, I found a whole new attitude and opinion on the topic of grocery shopping. Now its like a game that I am excited to play each week to see how much money I can save. Hearing the total is now my favorite part. I still take pictures on weeks I feel proud of myself for the savings! Tori and I love sharing with you what we have saved, but what we really love is hearing from our readers! We want to see your pictures! Don't pretend there has not been a week where you felt really proud of yourself, and the total savings your had! We know youve have had one! We also know you probably took a picture of it! :) So, dont be shy! Tell us about those weeks, and send us a picture of what your scored! We would love for you to show and tell, so we can feature it on the blog, and show others how you were able to purchase "a lot for less" using grocery smarts! Send us a picture, along with your total spent vs saved to Tori and I at our email- sheshopssmart@gmail.com

We cant wait to see your pictures and savings totals!
