How’s your holiday weekend shaping up so far? MashupDad has the day off today, so we’re all spending a rare family weekday together. We’re just back from the Willowbrook Wildlife Center in Glen Ellyn (beautiful day for it, but watch out for the mosquitoes!) and are now watching Jurassic Park on DVD from the library before dinner and fireworks later. How about you?

How many papers? Week of 7/5/15

The week of 7/5/15 we’re expecting one insert: P&G. See the full list at Coupon Previews.

  • Use this as a general guide, because coupons and values vary regionally. Sometimes our papers will not include one or more of the coupons listed, or when one area will get one $ amount on their coupons, we will get another.
  • In Chicagoland, the Chicago Tribune has the most coupons in it — even if the Sun-Times, or the DuPage Daily Herald, or the other smaller papers have the same inserts, they’re thinner. (Occasionally, the Sun-Times will contain a coupon not found in the Trib, but overall you’ll find many more in the Trib.) If you are outside Chicagoland, you will want to buy the largest-circulation paper in your area.
  • In IL-Chicagoland, you can pick up the early edition of the Sunday Chicago Tribune on Saturday morning for $1.00 at Menards or Dollar Tree.
  • Be sure to check to make sure that the inserts are in there before purchasing — since they are no longer in plastic bags, they’re falling out, not making it in, or getting swiped.
  • Check out the Mashup Mom Coupon Trading Group on Facebook if you’re looking for different coupons or have some you want to trade.

Belated midweek meal planning 7/3/15

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.


Welcome back to Midweek Meal Planning for the week of 7/3/15! It’s more traditional to meal plan on the weekend, but since our Chicago grocery deals mostly 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. Or somewhat ridiculously on FRIDAYS — oh my gosh, you guys, I am so thrown off lately with the kids out of school and completely lost track of the days this week. So this is kind of silly and belated, but I thought I’d post it anyway since I love hearing about your meal plans and hope we can inspire each other.


So here’s what we ate this week.

  • Sunday: Last week’s meal plan got pushed around and I actually ended up making the Saffron Road chicken tikka masala with the free simmer sauce from Fresh Thyme on Sunday (instead of Saturday as originally planned). It had a nice flavor but was very mild, so when I make the other pouch I bought I’ll definitely spice it up more. We also had Easy Spicy Curried Chickpeas (I wilted in some fresh spinach near the end, which made them better!), Tasty Bite Madras Lentils, naan, rice, fruit, and corn on the cob.
  • Monday: Leftovers from Sunday — that was a lot of food. :)
  • Tuesday: Costco rotisserie chicken, baked potatoes, broccoli.
  • Wednesday: Leftover chicken, potatoes, and various other leftovers, salad, fruit.
  • Thursday: Salsa Chicken in the crockpot with the cheap Yucatan guacamole from Jewel.
  • Friday: MashupDad is off for the holiday so we may actually go out for an early family dinner — he is pushing for BBQ…
  • Saturday: Leftover salsa chicken.

Your turn

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!
