Yesterday I bought some bananas at Kroger for 35¢ a bunch since they were very ripe.
Since we are in super frugal mode for the time being, I want to be sure to use what I have on hand instead of buying new. So with that in mind, this morning I used the last of a box of Bisquick and made banana pancakes for breakfast.
I made sure to cut out the Boxtops for Education from the box and added it to the jar where I've been saving them. I counted how many I had today and I have 101 in the jar, so time for me to sell them on Ebay.
We used to donate them to my daughter's middle school, but we've not done that since she has been in high school. I can sell them on Ebay for $10, so that is what I do with them now.
For dinner today I have done the following...
Cut up the watermelon...
Shucked and cooked the Corn on the Cob.
Food Lion was the only grocery store to have a great sale on it this week, 5 for $1.00, and when I got there I could see why.
The ears were small and not as fresh as I would have liked. I made the trip though, so I went ahead and bought 5, but not the original amount I was going to buy ($5.00 worth).
Made Cole Slaw...
And I will serve these with the Beef Hot Dogs I bought on sale at Food Lion last week. We don't have any beef in the house to make hamburgers, so the hot dogs will do instead.
Corn on the Cob $1.00
Hot Dogs $2.50
Buns 99¢Total $10.25
$10.25 for dinner, which is much cheaper than eating out. Plus we have plenty of leftovers, which is a win-win situation. :)
What's for dinner at your house today?
