I finally took down our Christmas decorations yesterday. And you know what? I filled an entire bag with decorations to donate to the Goodwill. It’s not that I don’t have the Christmas spirit – but the idea of Christmas clutter for the sake of decorations just stresses me out. I’d rather have a few very special and meaningful decorations – then bins of stuffed animals, flashing lights and singing bears. Which is what I had somehow collected over the years. Feels good to reduce the “stuff” in our household and I plan to continue this process throughout January. Are you minimizing at your place?
Seems like iBotta continues to grow in popularity and cash back opportunities keep adding up! Last night they added Winco to the long line up of stores they offer cash back on. The thing I love most about iBotta is they offer high-value, nearly instant cash back, on products that often have coupons! So it’s almost like being about to “double” your coupons at stores and combine it with a sale. You get a $5 sign up credit, that appears after you claim your first offer. Payout is via PayPal after you’ve reached only $5 – and I love that it pays in real cash, not points or some other reward system. You do need a smart phone – an iPhone or Android to use - and it can be used on an iPad!
iBotta has offers at these stores - CVS Pharmacy, RiteAid, Target, Walmart, City Market, Dillions, Dominicks, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, Giant Eagle, H-E-B, King Soopers, Kroger, Meijer, Pavilions, Pick ‘N Save, Publix, Ralphs, Safeway, ShopRite, Smith’s, Stop & Shop, Tom Thumb, Vons, Walgreens, Duane Reade, Food4Less, Harris Teeter, Hy-Vee, QFC, Randall’s, WinCo

RECIPES & MEAL PLANNING
Last night I made the WORST TURKEY EVER for dinner. I can safely guarantee it was the worst dinner of the year so far. Haha. I didn’t brine the turkey like I should have and it was so dry I almost choked on it trying to chew it for dinner. No joke. I’ve made a ton of turkeys, so I’m not sure how I managed to screw this one up so bad. My sweet husband said, “It’s not so bad” followed by a big gulp of water and a 5 minute chew to get it down. So anyway it’s in the fridge ready for some super soup recipes. I suppose that works out well with my Soup and Salad series I want to have this week!
