Martin's Coupon Deals Ending 10/8

Martin's Matchups 10/6/2015I wanted to pop in with some really great deal that are VERY time sensitive at Martin's this week. 

First if you did not know Martin's will be changing the start date of their sales period starting 10/8/2015. Sales will not run Friday through Thursday. The weekly circular will no longer be in the Sunday paper but should come in the Red Plum flyers you receive in the mail during the week. If you are not confident this will happen you can request a flyer be mailed directly to your home.

Lets jump into the deals!

Weekly Goals to Achieve Plus Meal Plans

Today marks the first Monday of a new month. I am not finding that a refreshing as I  did earlier in the year. For those of us that are goal setters this is "crunch time". Even when I don't have a lot going on I always seem to feel that unconscious reminder to keep moving, pushing, and accomplishing new things.

If that is only me please do your sister a favor and leave a comment telling me I am insane! Seriously, it would be reassuring to hear how people that don't set goals handle life. I feel like I would be a big ball of nerves not having anything to work towards but in a odd way I wonder if they are better at being spontaneous and trying new things. Just thoughts I think guys!

Let jump into this post now for real!

Spicy Philly Cheesesteak on a Budget {3 Ways}

How to make a spicy philly cheesesteak on a budget with or without bread

 I am not a very spontaneous person. I like plans and thrive on routines. I also love spicy, bread, and cheesesteak!!

My food creations on the other hand while I like them to be planned always take a new and unusual twist from the norm.

I love cookbooks but never actually use the whole recipe when cooking..baking is a little different. One extra teaspoon of something and you have a whole batch of cookies down the drain.

So when I was at the grocery store last week I saw a HUGE shelf of bakery goods reduced and inspiration struck.

I love hitting up the reduce shelves when I can spare the extra in my budget because the breads and pastries freeze wonderfully!

This week they had hoagies reduced to $1.73 so I grabbed one package and said I want a Philly Cheesesteak!

Weekly Goals to Achieve PLUS Menu Plans

The Ultimate to-do list
I saw the best graphic this week. I wish I would have saved it for you guys but it was just in passing and made me laugh. The picture was a circle graph of all the months of the year and each section represented how long each month felt.
January took up the largest part of the circle, I think we can all agree January seems to be the never ending month.
February through August were basically all even taking up just about the rest of the graph. 
Finally, September- December was represented by the tiniest little slivers of "pie" you have ever seen. 
That is exactly how the last quarter of the year is for me and I am betting you are nodding your head as well. 
With that said we have had a non-stop year, peaking when Jeff went into surgery two weeks ago and then going on vacation.

Last week I crashed from all of the hustle and bustle, worry, and life in general.

When this happens I normally retreat and stop everything not really moving forward or backwards.

This time thanks to a great blog I have been reading I decided to do something a little different.
