No More Waste!

IMG_0133.JPG

I’ve been looking into ways about what can I do in terms of reducing waste. I never realized how much waste is created when using plastic applicators for tampon products. O.b. is a brand that sells tampons that doesn’t use plastic or cardboard applicators! They were also conveniently on sale this week at my local Fred Meyer! I usually like to stock up on feminine hygiene products when they are on sale (:

  • Sale price = $4.99
  • In-store coupon = $1.00 off
  • Final price = $3.99

Sorry if this was TMI for everyone, but I mean… It is a good deal! Also, a lifestyle change towards trying to reduce waste.

$1.99 Suja

I don’t know about you guys, but whenever I start feeling like a cold is coming… I like to treat myself to a cold press drink that makes me feel a little bit better (: (My immune system is horrible btw). I love suja products, especially their greens concoctions! This week at my nearby Fred Meyers they were $3.99 with an attached coupon around the bottle for a $1.00 off coupon!

  

 
If you are an avid Ibotta user like I am… They are having a $1.00 rebate for a variety of suja bottles! Ibotta is an app that gives you money back on certain purchases at grocery stores, electronics, beauty products, restaurants, and even pet stores! Depending on what items are available for a rebate, it is a great opportunity towards stacking coupons on your purchases! 

Stockpile Items at Fred Meyer & QFC

CIMG_2331

I got this Pinterest idea of doing a $45.00/week grocery budget for freezer meals that are easy to prep on the weekends. Usually on Sundays, I go through weekly ads and see if there are any good sale on the items that I need to buy on the shopping list. There were great deals at QFC and Fred Meyer this week that I think I should make room for a stockpile! QFC had their “Buy 10, Save $5” promotion, which made a lot of things under $1.00! I got everything on my list of groceries for my week of freezer meals AND a stockpile more for the upcoming weeks all for $40.81!

Fred Meyer Deals for Easy Cheesy Quinoa Enchiladas

IMG_0111

So, I’ve recently been trying to make meal plans for each day of the week in order to try to manage my grocery budget better. Creating a meal plan helps in terms of finding deals in grocery store’s weekly ads and to know when to stock up on certain items when they do go on sale. Tuesday’s are like my “Taco Tuesday’s” kinda meal plan. Instead, I make quinoa enchiladas in my handy dandy slow cooker! (I will definitely share the recipe with you guys below!) Fred Meyer had some of the key ingredients on sale this week and I had to buy at least more than one. Besides the sale items used for my enchiladas, they had great deals on Krave cereal and clearance Downy Unstopables Laundry Scent Booster!

Easy Cheesy Quinoa Enchiladas

IMG_0112

I am a lover of slow cooker meals! They are so easy to make and even prepare for when you’re always busy and on the go. Also, ever since I’ve discovered the invention of slow cooker liners… Life is heaven. Here is the recipe! It is delicious and I usually eat it with some sour cream and chips (:

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of ground turkey
  • 1 orange bell pepper (you can use any color you like)
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup black beans (I use the uncooked ones, but you can use ones in the can too)
  • 1.5 cups quinoa
  • 1 can of enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 of onion diced
  • 1/2 cup of salsa
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 cups of cheddar cheese
  • Cilantro

Directions:

  1. Throw in the quinoa, onion, bell pepper, garlic, frozen corn, black beans, and salsa into the slow cooker.
  2. Cook the ground turkey until browned through. Drain any grease and put into the slow cooker. (I like mine a little spicy, so when I do cook it in the pan, I like to put in some Sriracha sauce!)
  3. Add in water, enchilada sauce, salt & pepper, cumin, and chili powder.
  4. Stir everything together and cook on HIGH for 3 to 3.5 hours or until all the liquid has been absorbed and the quinoa is cooked.
  5. When its done, remove the lid and add in 2 cups of cheddar cheese and cilantro. Enjoy with some sour cream, chips, or by itself!
