Asian BBQ Pork
It's been quiet around here except for my son and grandson visiting over the weekend. West is into playing card games with us now. He loves playing matching games. He also loves going into the exercise room with me. He tells me to get on the recumbent bike and then proceeds to keep turning the controls to make it harder for me to pedal. He takes great joy in this. He is quite the little "trainer".
We did watch the Superbowl game last night as I am sure many of you did. Since I am on WW, I didn't want to ruin my diet with a lot of snacks that we would normally have during the game. So I took the free box of pizza rolls that I got recently and baked them in the toaster oven. I ate 5. DH ate the rest. It made us feel like we hadn't missed out on anything.
Today's mail brought a $12. rebate check from Neosporin.
Our taxes, both Federal and State have both been filed which makes me feel like it really is a new beginning now. Now I can finish as much spring cleaning as I can.
I haven't been doing much as far as money saving except the usual. I have not been out of the house which by itself keeps our money in our pocket. No gasoline used or groceries purchased. I do have to go pick up a few things at Top's tomorrow since it is 6% off Senior Discount day.
I plan on organizing my pantries and freezers( again ) so that I can better find things. I do this often because they seem to get messed up when I am in a hurry. I also want to make note of anything that I need to stockpile for the next year at BJ's. My membership expires this month. By stockpiling a year on everything I buy there, I won't have to renew my membership for another year.
Please feel free to share with all of us anything that you have done in the past three days or so to save some money.
