fruit)

Friday: Jell-O and fruit

The fan favorite of the week was the banana bread.   The least favorite snack of the week was the “pantry trail mix” because it was mostly cheerios, and needed some more variety. If I were to make it again I would add some pretzels, goldfish crackers, and possibly raisins or dried cranberries. The kids preferred the Jell-O without the bananas.

Sunday: Leftovers or sandwiches

This week went pretty well for our dinner score. I only had only one child who would not try the lasagna.  The biggest fan favorites were the pulled BBQ chicken, and the pancakes. I did not count the tomato soup on the scorecard for Thursday because the only ones who ate it were my husband and I.  We didn’t end up having tacos on Saturday night, as we ended up going to Wendy’s instead. We ate a late lunch on Sunday, and 
didn't end up eating the sandwiches.

Frugal Friday- Cutting the Cord on Cable

I used to love watching cable, but the truth was that I only watched about three or four channels, along with the cartoons that my kids watched almost constantly. Seven months ago we cut the cord on cable and have not looked back since.  Here are some tips that made life easier for everyone while cutting the cord on cable.

1.) Internet
Though we cut the cord on cable, but didn't go completely "off grid". We discovered that with high speed WiFi there still are many options for entertainment if you are willing to be flexible.



Movies and TV**

The obvious options for movies and TV shows online are Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.  All of these are paid subscriptions if watching recent shows is important to you. So far we have tried to stay away from a subscription and have opted for free services such as tubitv.com and YouTube.Tubitv.com is a website that hosts older TV shows, I was surprised to find a few shows that I used to watch on cable, and many more I had never heard o…

The Game Plan

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!! 
An important aspect of managing a successful team whether in the NFL or Pee Wee League is the strategy or the game plan.  I have found that in fulfilling my role as family manager of this to be very true. We as humans are creatures of habit and thrive on structure. Obviously it is not possible or practical to write out a detailed schedule, but it serves as a guide. I love a perfectly executed plan, and one of my goals for this year is to organize my time more efficiently and therefore my home run more efficiently. It is a work in progress. My tendency is to jump into things full force, and the results aren’t always successful.  So I’m going to try to take this one step at a time. In order to be successful in getting back on track this week, one of my goals is to get up earlier so I can get into a morning routine. Goal number one for this week is to get up each morning and get my day started at a good time.  I have a list of items that I would like to accomplis…
