Menu Plan Monday (give it a go)

I'm really not the best menu planner, but there were some killer deals this week at the grocery store and I have it all planned out. First of all, I saved 62% off my total bill, and only spent $58. Score! With the rest of the stuff I have at home, it will be a very frugal week for us. Lunches are usually subject to vary, my 3 year old usually gets to pick lunch, so I try to give him some options, usually just swapping days around. I might make a broccoli cheese soup in there somewhere as well. Hoping for a no going out week for food.

Monday-      Lunch- Chicken Nuggets and Waffle Fries
                    Dinner- Linguine Alfredo

Tuesday-      Lunch- Chicken Salad Sandwich
                    Dinner- Tuna Caserole

Wednesday- Lunch- To Be Determined
                    Dinner- Chicken over rice

Thursday-    Lunch- Pigs in a Blanket
                    Dinner- Ham Steaks and Pineapple

Friday-         Lunch- Cheese Quesadillas
                    Dinner- Pierogies

The dreaded baking pantry!

I'm not sure why I was so hesitant to do the above the microwave cupboards that house our baking stuff. It really took less than 40 minutes with the "help" of my 3 year old to take everything out, clean the space, purge, sort and refill.

 Removed from Cabinet

 Empty and ready to be cleaned out!

 The items put back and look, some space!

 The get rid of stuff

After I finished that project, I went and gave the kitchen a nice scrub down. Usually it is something that gets done on Saturday mornings, but tomorrow I can relax with a nice clean kitchen!

 I love a pretty clean sink area!

Looking for an idea to help out this open area!

Decluttering my spam box. I know it seems silly, you can usually just hit select all and delete in a few quick clicks. I am hoping by removing myself from those 150+ unsubscribes in the spam folder that it will reduce the incoming spam. It makes it hard to find something in the spam folder (say, an important reply that got sent to the wrong place on accident) if there are so many messages. So for a a little while, I opened every spam in my box, went to the bottom to unsubscribe and typed in my email address over and over in the hopes that all of those third party spam offers become less frequent. Not exciting in the least, but I am hoping it works!
