Laurie’s Office Max/Depot Trip (+ We Finally Have A Menu Plan!)

Screen Shot 2016-08-08 at 6.38.03 AM

Here’s a peek at what I scored this week at Office Max/Depot, as well as our much needed menu plan. School starts next week here in Ohio, and while I’ve so enjoyed the summer break with my kids, I’m ready for a little more order in our lives!

 

First, here’s what I bought at Office Max this week:

  • 3 packs filler paper 1¢ each
  • 3 packs 4 ct glue sticks 25¢ each
  • 3 packs Office Depot highlighters 50¢ each
  • 3 packs 6 ct Papermate pencils 50¢ each
  • 1 pack 2 ct pack kids scissors 25¢ each
  • 2 sharpie markers 25¢ each
  • Total spent = $5.03

And, here’s a peek at what’s on our menu plan (in case you’re needing some inspiration too!)

  • Monday – spaghetti with whole wheat pasta, salad, homemade wheat bread (I just substitute half whole wheat flour for white flour)
  • Tuesday – Taco Tuesday, taco salads for James and me, tacos for the kids using leftover Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken (see Reagan make this one here ~ this is so simple there’s no excuse not to cook!)
  • Wednesday – cabbage rolls, salad (this is a new one for me, hoping my family won’t revolt! Several girls in our 21 Day Fix group raved about it so I’m crossing my fingers.)
  • Thursday – salmon, baked potatoes, salad, veggies
  • Friday – breakfast for dinner or dinner out

Target: 99¢ Elmers and Ticonderoga!

Screen Shot 2016-08-03 at 8.02.43 AM

Here’s a crazy deal at Target.com that you don’t want to miss! Check this out:

If you’re a Target Red Cardholder you’ll get free shipping on your order, or choose to pick up in store. And remember that Target is offering a $5 gift card when you spend $30 on school supplies to pick up in store this week as well ~ love that!

 

Note: I just actually ordered these and chose to pick up in my store later today – will get an email from Target when the order is ready (I have to drive right by there so it’s on my way!) Remember that Office Depot and Office Max also have Ticonderoga pencils for $1 this week, so if you don’t have an Office Depot nearby this will work there as well.
