Works for Me Wednesday Part 2-Fix It!

Shannon wanted us to post this week what we FIX it a hurry for dinner. You know those days when you are too tired to follow that menu you planned on Monday..well since I try real hard to stick to the menu so I can stay on budget..I wasn’t sure what to put but there are days when I do change things up….so what does this cheap mom do?

Okay once a week in my house is breakfast for dinner anyways so often I will swap days with another, if I have already does breakfast for dinner. Then it is leftovers, and if that don’t work then I use : grilled cheese and soup, which is also a standard cheap and healthy meal in this house.

So there now go and if you are a Cannuck read Part 1 of what really is working for this frugal mom.

Works for Me Wednesday

It’s another Wednesday so what has been working for me lately around here? We all know I love a great deal, games and contests right. Well there are two Canadian websites that I want to recommend and no I am not getting referrals, these are sites I use and know by experience do what they say!

First is Pigsback, it is new on the Market, but what a great find it was. You collect points for not only shopping online from major retailers we all know and love but by entering contests too! Guess which I do more of? There redeemable awards are great too ie you can get a Gift certificate without having to have a zillion points. They mail them out too within the time frame given.

The second is for Chapman’s Icecream Kid’s Club. It too has a point system where you play games and can earn rewards. My nine year old daughter loves it and has gotten stickers, activity book, pens, beach ball, and calculator in the mail all in great condition!

These two sites help this mom be a frugal Cannuck while doing what I love..saving money, and having fun! So they both work big time for me.

PS. If you want (or actually let me) refer you to Pigsback, then yes I can get referral points, and they have a contest the person with the most referrals in a week gets $10,000 points and that is 4 $25 gift certificates! Leave a comment and I will email you within 12 hours.

Now head over to Shannon’s for the rest of what is working for everyone!
