Shopping Deals May 23, 2013!

Hi Guys!

I just firstly wanted to say if you haven't tried batch cooking... DO IT! It's such a time saver! If your like me and you are all groggy and slow in the mornings, batch cooking is like the lazy girl's way to saving money! I've been doing a bit of it here and there but lately I've been more on top of my cooking! Last weekend in my spare time I baked about a couple dozen oatmeal chocolate chip muffins, froze them and thawed one or two (they're small) for immediate consumption the morning of. I shouldn't say thawed, but more like slowly rebaked while I was getting ready for work. I've also been making larger portions of certain dinners when I can and packaging the extra as lunch for the next day. I know it can be tedious to be eating the same thing twice in a row, so that's why I still bring sandwiches. Being in a condo, freezer space is tight but if you have the space and you can batch cook a bunch of different items you won't get bored of, you should definitely try it! Maybe even swap some food with friends! I once made frozen lasagna, portioned into single servings for times when I ran out of sandwich stuff and it really saved my butt! I even have mini single bite whole wheat banana breads ready to go for snacks when I get a craving. Try it and let me know how it works for you!

Quite a few good deals this week! I'm mostly looking forward to the $1 sale at No Frills and all
 the fruit items on sale. I love fruit! Especially, when I buy too much and they are super ripe and about to go bad I freeze them. Like bananas, they're great for smoothies or banana bread! Ok, go see what's going on this week and happy hunting!
