It has been a very busy month of May with Easter, Mother’s Day and some other projects I’ve had going on. So I hope to spend the next week catching up on some on my postings that I’ve fallen behind on.
I have been keeping up with my challenge of trying a new recipe each week for “What’s New for Dinner.” Some of them have been: Baked Tilapia, Bacon Roasted Chicken and two others that I want to share separately as I thought they were really great and are definitely part of my permanent monthly meal plan going forward!
But I have some fun things planned for this summer on Coupon Geek.
Last year, I did a Wednesday’s Reading Day and shared what I was reading with my children and did a giveaway for you guys to pick your own new books. I will be sharing books again this year but I am going to do the giveaways in one big one at the end of each of the summer months with several winners for new books–and one additional giveaway to kick off our fun!
My garden is ALMOST set-up now and I’ll be sharing some pics with you and some ideas for getting your own garden started this year. Produce coupons are so rare still and having your own garden is an amazing way to save money and have some fresh veggies worked into your meal plans.
I am also working on a “Time Out with Kids” series, sharing some frugal ideas that I’ve done with my kids throughout the week. We had a fun little outing last week that I can’t wait to share as my kids keep asking me to repeat our adventure this week. You’d be surprised at how much fun you can have for free or nearly free. (A special thank you to my friend Keri Lyn for making my button for this series!)
Some of you have asked what my plans are for fitness coming up. June starts off my 5K training again with hopes of signing up for the Susan G Komen Chicago 5K Race. I am also digging out an old DVD of mine of my favorite fitness instructor, Denise Austin, called Blast Away 10 Lbs. It has some fun kickboxing routines on there and Denise is one of the most motivating trainers I’ve found. So I’ll be doing these along with several walks with kids and loads of outdoor fun with them, taking advantage of Chicago’s limited warm weather months!
So stay tuned for some fun and as always, thank you so very much for stopping by Coupon Geek and following in my adventures and coupon savings!
