Try This! My March List

I did fairly well on my February list of things to try, with only one thing that didn’t quite get done as intended.  My March list looks like this:

Monthly Meal Planning

Freezer Cooking

Homemade Hair Detangler

Homemade Baking Mix

Recycled T-shirt Headbands

In case you are wondering why I choose the things I do, there is a method to my madness.  I try to include at least one recipe idea, one craft idea, and one organization idea.  Since I’m writing about one idea each week, I also try to make sure I have as many ideas as there are Tuesdays in a month.  That’s really all there is to it.  Now, I better go get to work on the first one – meal planning – because I have NO IDEA what we are eating this coming week!!  Hopefully by the time you read this in a couple days I’ll have that figured out.

Thrifty Thursday: Target Gift Card Challenge

My children get a lot of Target gift cards for birthdays and holidays.  It’s nice, because then we can save up for bigger purchases and have less clutter around the house.  The only problem is that the things they save for aren’t always at Target.  Right now, I’ve got $60 in Target gift cards in my wallet from this type of trade.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll be trying to see just how far I can stretch those gift cards.

My Target is re-modeling right now to add an expanded grocery department.  I am super excited because I like Target better than that other store across the street that starts with a “W.”  I’m hoping to find a lot of great deals while this re-model is going on.  Stay tuned to see how I do……….
