Midweek meal planning 3/4/15

pizza

Welcome back to Midweek Meal Planning for the week of 3/4/15! Yes, it’s more traditional to meal plan on the weekend, but since our grocery ads here in Chicago flip midweek, and since Wednesday hump day is when many of us start running out of steam, we buck the trend here and go with Wednesdays — looking both forwards and back.

  • Saturday: Homemade pizza. Trader Joe’s sells refrigerated dough for $1.29, Junior High Guy had a gluten free crust already in the freezer, and MashupDad cooked up his on a low carb wrap. Topped these with $1.99 pepperoni and clearance olives from ALDI, plus leftover cheap produce from Caputo’s last week and some mozzarella I bought cheap last fall and froze for just such an occasion.
  • Sunday: We ate out at a local family restaurant.
  • Monday: Leftover pizza.
  • Tuesday: Leftover smorgasbord.
  • Wednesday: Chili, per MashupDad’s request. He’s kind of cute, and we had all the ingredients handy, so… ;)
  • Thursday: Leftover chili on giant ALDI potatoes.
  • Friday: Corned beef and fingerling potatoes. (Corned beef points are $1.99/lb at ALDI this week, and fingerling potatoes are $1.49 for 24 oz.) On the side, probably broccoli.

Your turn

I’m apparently cooking mostly from the freezer, pantry, and ALDI this week, but how’s your week of meal planning going? Are you cooking mostly out of your pantry, or are you taking advantage of this week’s grocery sales? Let’s inspire each other!

Reader deals 3/4/15: Here are the deals, heads up, and requests you shared over the last 24 hours — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

  • Email Rachel: rachel@mashupmom.com.
  • Comment below, or on any post where it seems to fit.
  • Post on the Mashup Mom Facebook page.

*** If you are sharing a deal from another site or an online coupon, please include the link. If you found a deal at a specific store, please include the location.

ALDI

  • Something to look for from SoapboxTray: “Fox Lake Aldi had 40oz Peanut Butter Chunky for $1.99 on clearance. There were about 10 of them there.”

Caputo’s

  • From Valentina S.: “1 lb. strawberries were $1.29 at Downers Grove Caputo’s and they were Driscoll’s. It has been a while since I got strawberries for $0.29 after $1/1 survey coupon.”

Daily deals

  • On the Thermos insulated lunch cooler, from TracyS: “I have that lunch bag! My kids use drink thermoses and they fit well in here. Only caveat is the square containers I often use for main dishes needs to be put in sideways. Front zipper keeps utensils clean.”

Jewel

  • Liz found one: “for the noosa yogurt there is also a 20/30/40% off if you buy 3 or more. I wonder if you get 4 with 2 free if it will count of buying 3–this is on shopmium
  • Tamara says noosa is: “some of the best yogurt I’ve ever had!”
  • On not using MyMixx and paper coupons together, Tamara points out when the digital ones can be useful: “However, you can use a mixx (hehe) of both. I used two printables and a MyMixx $1/2 for the P3 deal (buy 6, save $3). I have access to two computers, but figured since I only needed 3, I could save some ink and paper on the 3rd coupon.”

Pete’s Fresh Market

Reader requests

  • One from Julie on Facebook: “Looking for a deal on the newest, hottest thing that my 3rd grader is into. Animal Jam. Any deals on Animal Jam membership cards?? (3 month preferable, but I won’t be too picky.) Thanks in advance.”
  • Diane is wondering: “Does anybody know if Recyclebank still offers the CVS e gift card as a reward? (It has said sold out for a a long time.)”

Restaurants

  • Tamara found: “An interesting Jimmy John’s side voucher claim form. This is the verbiage: “I purchased at least one sandwich identified on a Jimmy John’s menu as containing alfalfa sprouts, but which in fact did not contain alfalfa sprouts, between February 1, 2012 and February 7, 2015.” My voucher was received in less than an hour and is good until May 12.”

Sears

  • On the cheap Chicago Bears sherpa throw, Mary comments on Facebook that: “Sears also has been having a huge clearance on Bears and Cowboys items. Many clothing items for kids through adults, male and female. Lots of odds and ends too (Blankets,Socks,Flags,Clocks,Mugs, etc…).

Ultra Foods

ultrachicken

  • If you’re near the Ultra Foods in Downers Grove, you may want to stop by today. Chris comments on Facebook that she picked up the above “Markdown chicken at Ultra, all for $19!” And Nikki comments: “I went to the Downers store today. They had lots of Perdue chicken clearanced. They had whole fryers, already priced at $0.69/lb, with $2 off stickers on them- GREAT deal! I also saw chicken thighs (bone in), drumsticks, chicken leg quarters.”
  • And a great suggestion from Maureen for the $1.99 coffee: “Got two (although I have a Keurig and don’t use bags coffee is one of the most popular food pantry items so I know someone will be happy to have it!).”
