Rise and Shine March 27 – French bread pizza, TOMS shoes coupon, Fossil sale, women’s jeans and more


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Wahooooo it’s Friday. And it’s going to be sunny. And I don’t have any plans this weekend except for working in the yard and enjoy some spring weather! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? 

Pepperoni-Pizza-French-Bread

Still going with our pantry and freezer challenge, so last night for dinner we made French Bread Pizza - we had leftover french bread (marked down), fresh mozzarella (marked down), leftover homemade spaghetti sauce, pepperoni from the freezer and leftover olives from taco night! It was the perfect storm of markdowns and leftovers to make a frugal and resourceful dinner. My kids and husband loved it. I served it with veggies (from marked down veggie tray) and a cabbage slaw – using that cabbage I bought last week.

Grilled-Asparagus-with-Garlic

If you’re up for grilling this weekend – one of my favorite veggies to grill is asparagus! I like it with lots of garlic and you can even shave some fresh parmesan on top (after it’s grilled). What’s your favorite veggie to grill?

QFC-shopping-trip-March-26

Good morning! Happy Thursday! How is your day going so far?

Yesterday I stopped into QFC and picked up a CART FULL of groceries for right at around $40. <Insert happy dance here.> Although my Pantry and Freezer challenge ends in just 6 days, and I could have spent less by only buying food for those 6 days, I couldn’t pass up the bargains! So many manager markdowns – fresh pica de gallo $1.49, fresh mozzarella $1.99, French bread $1.16 (for our clam chowder from the freezer that we had for dinner last night), salad mixes $0.99 – $0.55/store coupons = $0.44 each, organic celery hearts $0.99, butter as low as $1.24 (details here, I stocked up!), plus bread, broth, hot dogs (my kids love!), veggie tray $3.99 . . .and even some fancy Indian sauces marked down to $1.19. Whew! So I think this should carry us through March and even into April.  The in-ad deals aren’t too bad for QFC this week either – check those out here. If you have a local Kroger store – check your ad for the same deals.

I sold a few items online yesterday as part of the de-cluttering challenge and I hope to list more items today. I’m always trying to prioritize the BIGGEST items and the ones that will net the biggest return. If you’re feeling overwhelmed – that’s a great way to start. You’ll see the de-cluttering faster if you’re moving the bigger items first.

Step-2-Woodland-Climber-sold

And speaking of selling bigger items – I sold this big ole play structure in our backyard for $100! It was picked up last night. Now to try and bring the grass back to life that was under it! :)

Good morning! How are you doing today? I’m back on my de-cluttering bandwagon and will spend this morning listing a bunch of items to sell in my local Facebook group. I already sold two items this morning!

GoDirect-Chicken-Giveaway

If you missed it yesterday – I’m giving away a year’s worth of boneless, skinless, chicken breasts. It’s 160 pounds. It’s part of a launch for a new company called GoDirect Foods - with a similar business model to Zaycon but offering a little different things, in a little different way. I tried out their beef roast and ground beef – both were delicious. I share more about the giveaway and the products I tried here.

Crockpot-Slow-Cooker-Clam-Chowder

For dinner tonight I pulled out some of this slow cooker Clam Chowder from the freezer. We’ll eat it with leftover tacos from last night. :) Random, I know, but that’s how we roll as part of the Pantry and Freezer challenge

Good morning! I’m getting a late start today. Car is in the shop so I ran handsome husband to work and then took kiddo to school. Loving the blue skies this morning here in the Northwest! Did you see Thursday should get up to 70 degrees? I have so much work to do in the yard and garden – I guess that’s what I’ll be doing toward the end of the week. :)

GoDirect-Chicken-Giveaway

If you missed it earlier this morning – I’m really excited about this new company GoDirect Foods  and the products they’ll be offering starting this spring. I stopped buying chicken at the grocery store a few years ago – after discovering Zaycon. But lately I’ve been frustrated with Zaycon’s intermittent delivery schedules (which they’ve been changing after I order) and the rising prices. GoDirect will have a similar business model to keep costs low – but has some different commitments which I think will set it apart from other companies, like Zaycon. I’ve partnered with them to give away 160 pounds of chicken breasts (a year’s worth of chicken!) to a lucky Queen Bee reader. You can learn more and enter here.

Good morning! How are you doing today? How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

Speaking of fun, our spring break is in a few weeks and I’m wondering – where are your favorite campgrounds in Washington and/or Oregon? Please leave a comment and tell me your favorite camping spots! I’m hoping we can get away for a couple days.

Project-Downsize-Donate

Yesterday I shared this past week’s downsizing progress – can’t believe it’s been SEVEN weeks of selling, donating and giving away items! I hope this next week is much better than last week – when I didn’t sell anything online!

pantry-freezer-challenge

Only 9 more days left in March – so that means 9 more days of the Pantry & Freezer Challenge. Yesterday I shared an update – I’ve sold $117.92 on groceries so far this month. The majority of the items I’ve purchased have been produce, meat and dairy – very little spent on snacks and packaged foods.

Spaghetti-Sauce-recipe-homemade

Remember when I found that huge bag of marked down mushrooms and made homemade spaghetti sauce earlier this month? I took a bag of the sauce out of the freezer, along with some frozen turkey meatballs, and tonight we’ll have spaghetti (with side salad) for dinner. I took out some frozen marked down chicken sausage/ground turkey – which I’ll cook up for tacos tomorrow night. Feeling good about using the foods we have and all the money we’re saving by not shopping too much!

Good morning! TGIF, my friends. I’m grateful it’s Friday today! Do you have any big plans this weekend?

I really need to get to the grocery store soon!  The fridge is empty – which means we’re saving money as part of the Pantry & Freezer challenge – but it’s making meal time a little tricky. We had “breakfast” for dinner last night – tater tots (from freezer), scrambled eggs with mushrooms (markdown) and gouda, sausage (markdown from freezer) and Fisher’s pancakes (markdown mix).

I think for dinner tonight I’ll make this Slow Cooker Quinoa Chicken Chili – but since we’re out of chicken, I’ll leave that out for a vegetarian version. I have everything else I need in the pantry!

Good morning! How are you doing today? I hope you’re morning is off to a great start. Things are chugging along at my place – looking forward to this weekend and keeping busy with decluttering, donating and trying to make creative meals with the Pantry and Freezer challenge. :)

Last night for dinner we had rice, Potsickers (thanks to $2.99 deal!), mixed frozen vegetables and hot dogs from the grill. So very, very random. Of course, the kids loved it – you would have thought I’d served the best dinner on the planet. Tonight will be BREAKFAST for dinner – most of which is coming from the freezer. :) I’ll probably need to go to the grocery store tomorrow – as we’re out of bananas, lettuce/spinach and other healthy, fresh snacks.

I’m hoping to clean my kid’s rooms today. They are a hot mess. Toys covering the floor and spilling out into the hallway. It’s a disaster and I’m hoping as a I get things cleaned up – that I’ll pull out some items to sell online this next week.

Fisher-Price-50-off-sale

The Amazon Deal of the Day today is great! Save up to 40% off Mattel and Fisher-Price toys – they have everything from dolls, to baby rockers, to board games and outdoor toys. This is today, March 19, 2015, while supplies last – items will sell out.

Grilled-Burgers-Goud

Did you make Corned Beef and Cabbage for dinner last night?  I’d love to hear if you did anything special for St. Patrick’s Day! For dinner, we grilled up burgers – because we had ground beef thawed in the fridge. We topped with gouda, avocado and sautéed mushrooms and onions. They were delicious and super filling – and worked perfectly for our Freezer and Pantry challenge!  Grilling is one of my favorite ways to make meals – easy clean up and great flavor!

It sure seems like “the hive” was buzzing around here yesterday – tons of online deals and things to tell you about! Today should follow suit, seems a lot of retailers are offering St. Patrick’s Day promotions and discounts.

Free-cone-Dairy-Queen

Yesterday, on the way to preschool, I took my sweet girl to get a FREE ice cream cone at Dairy Queen. What a rare treat! We went through the drive thru – and it was completely free! My favorite part of this promotion was asking YOU to share the photos of your kids and their free ice cream cones —> check out the great photos shared on the Queen Bee Facebook pageSo many BIG smiles of kids (and grown ups) with ice cream cones. I loved it. Thank you for humoring me and sharing your photos. :)

QFC-shopping-trip-March-16

After dropping my daughter off, I stopped into QFC and picked up bread, hamburger buns, hot dog buns and some markdowns. My son refuses to eat hot lunch at school – so we pack a peanut butter and jelly sandwich EVERYDAY and I was out of bread. I spent $13.93 on everything pictured above. Not much for markdowns – but all stuff we needed. The fancy bread was on sale for $2.50 – and I toasted it up in the oven with some butter and garlic, served with this soup. . . .

Slow-Cooker-Beef-Barley-Stew

Last night I made this Slow Cooker Beef and Barley stew – oh my, it turned out delicious! I used leftover pot roast and lots of veggies for a very filling soup.  If you’ve made my old beef and barley soup recipe, this is an updated version – I think it’s better. :)

Project-Downsize-Donate

Part of that process includes continuing our downsizing. I shared an update yesterday on the things we DONATED this week and the things we sold. Can’t believe we’ve been actively downsizing for SIX weeks now – earning more than $3,000 and de-cluttering like it’s our JOB.

pantry-freezer-challenge

In an effort to save money and “de-clutter” the freeezer and pantry we just wrapped up our second week of our March Pantry & Freezer challengeWe have only spend $82.84 on groceries so far this month – and most of that was fresh produce, dairy and meat. You can get an update on our Freezer and Pantry challenge here.

Good morning! I’m happy it’s Friday – how about you? Do you have any exciting plans for this weekend?

Queen-Bee-Coupons-Logo-2

I’m excited to tell you about a new “feature” for the site. As Facebook decreases the reach for pages like mine (this means I will continue to show up LESS in your feed) – one of the easiest ways we can stay in touch is via email. I worked with a developer to set up FOUR types of emails – this helps me cater to your needs and make any emails I send MORE relevant to you. We’re all busy – so making intentional choices about what types of emails we’re signing up for just made sense to me.

The four types of Queen Bee email options include:

The Daily Buzz – Subscribe to the Daily Buzz list and you’ll receive ONE email a day, that includes all the deals and posts from the previous 24 hours. Delivered around 2 p.m. PST everyday, it’s best for those who want one-stop-shopping with all the day’s posts in one place.

Rise and Shine – Receive my daily Rise and Shine post in your inbox as soon as it’s published each morning. Rise and Shine is my way of having a conversation with my readers each morning – sharing a top-level view of the very BEST deals of the day. Ideal for those who are busy and just wanted the highest level of deals.

Amazon deals – This list is for you if you’re fanatical about Amazon. You will get an email every time a new Amazon deal is posted. This could be 5 or more emails a day – so you really have to like Amazon. This is a great list if you don’t want to miss out on the Amazon deals, which can often sell out before the Daily Buzz email in the afternoon.

Recipes – This email newsletter will only show up in your inbox when a new recipe is posted or an old one is featured again. This subscription is for you don’t care about deals and prefer just recipes or meal planning posts.

You can sign up for ONE or ALL of these emails. If you sign up for all of them you’re likely to get some redundant info and probably get tired of me. But if you think you can handle that much Queen Bee :) then it’s an option for you.

Sign up for Queen Bee emails here. And keep me posted on how it’s working for you, k?

Qfc-shopping-trip-March-12

Yesterday I hit up the grocery store (QFC) – as we were getting low on fresh food options. While I’m still watching our spending as part of our Pantry and Freezer challenge, I did pick up some “extras” because the price was right. I’ll share more about what I purchased this weekend – but I spent $38.57 on everything pictured above. Not too shabby, thanks to lots of markdowns, store mailer coupons and e-coupons (like this $5 off $15 produce coupon). With this purchase I’m at $82.84 for the month so far – so still on track to be under $200.

Taco-salad-March-12

Last night we had tacos/taco salads (we have these a lot) using ground turkey from the freezer. I made another big batch of this Spanish rice and it was extra delightful with fresh avocados, shredded lettuce, sour cream and salsa from my shopping trip yesterday.

What’s on your menu plan this week?

As we continue our Pantry and Freezer challenge – last night I tried a new recipe - Turkey Tetrazzini Deluxe from AllRecipes.com. In the fridge I had mushrooms, leftover turkey and 1/2 an onion. From the pantry I had chicken broth, cream of mushroom soup, and pasta. And from the freezer I added frozen peas. I left out the bell pepper, sherry and Worcestershire sauce because we didn’t have it. I think it turned out great! My fresh options are running low – so I hope to make it to the grocery store sometime today.
