COSTCO MEMBERS - Cheap 24 Hour Gym Membership!

How many of you out there have Costco memberships, or know someone who does? Well I just found a great deal!!!

TWO (2) YEAR membership to 24 Hour Fitness
for $299.99

I went into their gym the other night to find out the cost, it's normally $34 per mo. plus starting out your pay first & last months dues. At $299.99 that's only $12.50 a month!
What I LOVE is that you pay up front so you don't have to worry about your membership for 2 years!

:: You can purchase up to 4 memberships ::

This is exciting to me because my husband keeps asking for a gym membership but it's never really in the budget, but I think this we can do. Father's Day is coming up so I think this is going to be the gift! *it's a gift for me too ;)

To find out more go to and login.

If you are already a 24 Hour Fitness Member, or are going to be soon:

Three (3) 50 Minute Personal Training Sessions for only $79.99

Summer is going to be here SOON... time to get those bodies in shape! (and be healthy of course)

Grocery Shopping Week by Week

Now being a mother of THREE I feel much more of a challenge to stay on top of things, to be organized AND to SAVE MONEY!!! Diapers... need I say more!

One of the things that I am trying to do is shop once a week for groceries, obviously using coupons and the sales. My first week back into the groove of things felt really good, so I thought I would share with all of you :)

So this is what I do:
- Tuesday or Wednesday (depending on when you get the new store ads) I gather together my ads and I find produce that is on sale. I make a list of those items.
- I think look in the freezer to see what meats, or pantry for pastas, beans, etc, and I start building meals.
I found that it was much easier to make a meal plan this way. Once I get my plan for this week done I will share it here.

How do you plan meals for your family?
