costco rebate check shopping trip

Costco – Free! 

It was like I won the lottery. Seriously. Although tempted to buy the giant Costco  92″ bear  I decided to spend my whole Costco rebate check on food. Yep. I’m totally exciting that way. ;)

Dave’s Killer Bread for the HH, Doritos and Mrs. Buttersworth’s syrup for Monkey Boy and Dubliner cheese for me. Yay! I also stocked on the basics like flour, sugar, rice, potatoes and onions. My total came to around $207 and so they gave me the rest in cash. Weee! Free groceries and a free lunch. Can’t beat that!

chicken stirfry

And since I finally broke down and bought an electric skillet last week  {did you see that sweet picture I posted in Instagram?} , I also picked up chicken, fresh veggies, eggs and breakfast weenies too. Real food!! Wahooo.

costco rebate check

So you are probably wondering what on earth I purchased at Costco in the past year to have earned this rebate check. Well for starters, my parents give us a Costco membership every year for Christmas. Which is totally cool because even though there are a lot of benefits to owning a Costco membership, $110 a year is still kind of high in my opinion.

So what did we buy? Mostly mattresses and bed frames for our place on the East Coast. And of course there’s all that lawn fertilizer, man clothing, and Costco food court weenies the HH buys there throughout the year as well. Oh and a new camera for me {because I busted mine this past summer after owning it for 3 years} and The Girl Who Thinks She’s a Birds graduation present as well. It adds up let me tell you. Quick.

kashi cinnamon harvest cereal

Amazon Subscribe and Save Deals $18.67

I picked up 4 boxes of Kashi Chewy Honey Almond Flax Bars for $8.34 and 4 boxes of  Kashi Organic Promise Cereal, Cinnamon Harvest for $10.33. I’m not sure if the deals are still available but I should be receiving my box from Amazon later today.

cougar mountain cookie dough

Smith Brothers Farm - Sponsored

A strange phenomenon is happening at our house. Our milk isn’t getting guzzled down like it use to. I attribute this to not having a kitchen area because of the remodel.  Luckily the cabinets and oven should be in place by the weekend {I won’t have a sink or a counter top though} so instead of ordering regular milk this week {we still have 2 cartons in the fridge} I thought I would grab some Cougar Mountain Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough and bake some cookies this weekend. {Fingers crossed!} I also picked up a half gallon of Chocolate Milk for Monkey Boy, and a tub of Greek Gods Honey Yogurt for the HH.

How did you do this week? Have you found anything good at Costco lately?

~Mavis

Total Spent This Week $18.67
Total Spent Year to Date $1503.02 
{Over for the year!} :(

7 minute marshmallow frosting

tin heart

Yesterday my 85 year old neighbor lady stopped by to invite our family over for pecan pie and coffee on Sunday. Her husband, the retired Air Force Colonel {who wants to run for congress}, had found an award winning pie recipe from Texas last week while were talking in the garden and was going to have his wife make it.

Well, as my neighbor lady and I were talking in our family room, {that now has walls! as she pointed out} I mentioned I had to get my entire downstairs painted this weekend {to stay on schedule} and that it was also Monkey Boy’s birthday on Sunday and the boys had planed to go shopping for his present.

“Oh! What is your son’s favorite kind of cake!? I will make him a cake for his birthday. This means of course you will not get your pecan pie though.” 

Oh.My.Word.

I giggled, and then admitted I hadn’t thought about making Monkey Boy a cake because I DON’T HAVE AN OVEN and how lovely it would be if he had a homemade cake on his birthday.

Can you believe that?

I tried {once} turning her down but quickly noticed the twinkle in her eyes and the smile growing on her face before she announced she’d be making him a very moist chocolate cake with a marshmallow frosting in a SQUARE cake pan. And then promptly told me it was my job to buy the candles.
:) It was AWESOME. :)

I barely know my new neighbors and I love them already.

Happy Friday everyone. Life is good!
