Sharing Saturday Link Up #34

SharingSaturday_34_FacebookSquare

For those who are regular readers you will note that this week’s link up is a few days late, to be honest I almost didn’t take the time to share it because it is 2 days behind schedule BUT here it is.   I may have been on vacation and now battling some issues but that doesn’t mean I can’t help promote other businesses through our weekly link up party, right?

So, who is ready to party this week?   I know I am.   We had a great time at my mom’s a few weeks ago until my daughter had another “episode” and turned everything upside down again.  We are now home but taking it one day at a time.  Due to the fact we were not home, dealing with medical stuff and recuperating from our “mini-vacation” I chose not to post anything this past week.  And you know what?   That is okay because our family comes first.   How about you?   How was your week?


I want to give a big shout out to everyone who linked up last week (without reminders) and those who link up faithfully.   I will not be featuring anyone this week due to my time constraints but I did want to offer the opportunity and hope to read some great articles and discover some great products as well.


Before we begin, here are just a few guidelines for those of you linking up for the very first time.

Sharing Saturday is a place where you can come to share and read everyday stories from everyday people and learn everything from new recipes to life tips and lots of things in between.

We want to create a family oriented, faith based spot for readers and bloggers alike to find tips, tricks and inspiration for anything pertaining to the home, business or family.

August Shopping Trip- Stocking Up

August Shopping Trips & Stocking Up

We decided that stocking up on drinks last month was a great idea.  It reduced the amount of extra store trips we made considerably, and helped me manage the overall grocery budget better.  Because of our drink requirements and limitations it takes a considerable amount of our monthly grocery budget ($150/$500).  This month I was able to splurge on the Starbucks Drinks (.50 each) with the money we saved buying in bulk at the beginning of the month.  Besides, it is a much cheaper to put in the fridge and take on doctor’s trips than buying something on the road, and it makes a nice, refreshing treat for the teens and hubby.

Monday Menu #15- What’s on Your Plate?

Monday Menu 15 Facebook

I am happy to share, that eating from the cabinets last month went well, but now it is time to restock.  Due to the amount of groceries we purchased this weekend, three carts at Save-a-lot alone, we are sharing our stock up trip in a separate post tomorrow.

It’s been a great week here at Treasured Tidbits.  A week full of changes, updates and online discoveries with a bonus of family time and personal growth.  As I stated in our last few Sharing Saturdays, our goals for August are to learn how to optimize our blog and update all our previous posts.  We are working just as hard at The Zippy Zebra.  We will continue to share Menu Monday and Sharing Saturday, plus work behind the scenes to improve our Pinterest and social media, so please be patient.  Because when September 1st hits I hope to give you some great content to prepare ALL of us for an AMZAZING 2017.

Monday Menu #14-Making Do With What’s On Hand

Menu Monday #14

Monday Menu #14

As we enter week #14 and share our Menu Monday plan, we are wrapping up the end of our one month budgeted grocery period.  During this week we are trying hard to “Just Make Do” with food from the fridge and cabinets.  Keeping this in mind, we will not have a shopping trip to share this week, we didn’t last week either.

I would estimate that we have spent approximately $50 for this week’s groceries.  Those items included: 3 gallons of milk, eggs, cheese, bread, lunch meat, orange juice and a few more dairy products.  Items we were unable to pre-purchase and store in the freezer.

It has been a fairly slow week here at Treasured as we have prepared for the new school year.  Our children are home schooled, but I am still very active in our local Music Booster program and band activities.  In addition, I encountered a few physical set backs that left me unable to function too well.  But I am in motion today and ready for a visit from my wonderful family.  How are you spending your Saturday?

Monday Menu #13

This week did not require a large shopping trip since we are eating from the cabinets and freezer and only purchasing dairy, produce and bread as needed.   We are having guests for lunch each day during band camp and did increase our lunch plan to accommodate a larger lunch crowd but we still not change our over all menu.   We haven’t even needed to purchase drinks after the great drink haul I grabbed at Save A Lot
