This year is going to be a bit different for myself and my family because both of my boys will be in school full time! I’m so nervous. Vincent is also starting sports this year. We’re going to have tons of after school practices. Because of this I have decided that once my boys get home from school, that’s it, my work day is over. Computer, phone, put away. I want to be able to make the most of our evenings and I want them to contain as little stress as possible. One of the first ideas that popped into my mind was that I should cook a bunch of meals in bulk that I can put in the freezer & have it ready to go or simply pop in the oven when we get home.
I don’t know about your kids but my children love all things pasta so that was pretty much the first thing on my list. I knew I could get extra large jars of Ragu® spaghetti & pasta sauce at Costco because they recently teamed up so they could make dinner time more convenient for moms like me. The kids and myself got our list together and headed on up there. School starts in only 2 weeks!
Did you know that if you don’t have a membership at Costco a friend can buy you a cash card and you’re able to shop in the store? You have to use your card all up in one trip. What you don’t spend, they’ll give you the remainder in cash. So if you can’t afford a membership right now or you just want to check out the store first, find a friend with one!
