Balance is always a struggle for me. I am always striving for it.
One thing that I try to balance is the amount of “buying out” I do for food. And when I do it, I like to make sure I am getting value and quality.
During the holiday season, it gets hectic.
It seems that every day is hectic around these parts. And just when I think that it can't possibly get more hectic, the holidays roll around and amps it up.
I do my best to stay on top of everything. But the truth is when I am doing one thing exceptionally well, I am slacking somewhere else.
When you see me making fresh biscuits from scratch, TRUST that my kitchen is a mess.
When you see me DIY’ing, we're probably eating lunch meat sandwiches.
And when I have to prepare for hosting family for the holidays, well I am all over the darn place.
So if I am slacking the right way, it's by cutting corners rather than having a meltdown and all-out forgetting to do things.
This past weekend was a perfect example of the craziness the holidays bring when they collide with real life.
It's Saturday morning, my hair was all over my head, my teen (who happens to be my hair fixer these days) went to go hang with her friend for the night before, I hadn't gotten laundry done on Friday (which is the goal), I had blog deadlines, mom called me to let me know their travel plans and hubby reminded me it was date night. What the what?????
We had our fast food Friday, and this day was most certainly gonna be simple Saturday.
I hit up my local Kroger and grabbed a hot and fresh pizza and Coca-Cola™ beverage meal deal. For under ten bucks, I got a 12” pizza that was ready to go in the oven, and a 1L DASANI® to wash it down with.
Here's the deal, lean in cause I wanna help you be great too….
Kroger loyalty members can grab a Deli Fresh ready to heat pizza for $5.99 and a Coca-Cola™ 1.25L beverage; which includes Coca-Cola™ Classic, Coke Zero Sugar™, Diet Coke®, Sprite®, or 1L DASANI® and save $1 with their loyalty card (making the drink nearly free)! (valid 12/3/17 – 1/3/18)
There are four pizza types to choose from as well
- 6 Cheese
- Italian Supreme
- Double Pepperoni
My parents are coming to town shortly but that doesn't change the fact that I have these kids to take care of and a marriage to nurture. Oh, and housework too!
So I cut corners the cool way. By grabbing food and drinks that I trust my family will enjoy almost as much as if I made them myself.
- I got my work done and was able to submit what I needed.
- I am being a great mom by feeding the kids something tasty that was made (although not prepared) in my kitchen.
- And I took a few minutes of me time and twisted up my hair (and polished my nails cause I'm fancy) so I could hang with my boo thang!
Don't let the holiday rush and busyness of the season take you out of your hook up. Find ways to cut corners and still be awesome. And hit up your local Kroger and grab a cold beverage and meal, and keep it moving like me!
