Free Easter Menu with Printable Shopping List

Easter is less than a week away and if you are hosting friends and family, you want to serve a delicious meal, but you probably also want to save a little money.

Favado is a free app that helps you save on groceries for your everyday shopping as well as special occasions.  

Once you download the free app (click here), the Favado app gives you a list of stores based on your zip code and you can select the stores for which you want prices. Then simply type the item that you are looking for in the search bar and find the prices in your area for that item. Once you know the lowest prices, you can create your grocery list based on the best deals — a simple and brilliant way to save time and money on ham, eggs, Easter candy and anything else you need for your family celebration!

 

Favado Free Easter Menu

Right now when you sign up for the Favado app you can print a FREE Easter Menu complete with recipes and a printable grocery list! The menu includes the most frequently discounted items for this time of year (so you can save even more money) as well as delicious recipes like Bacon Wrapped Asparagus and Chocolate Raspberry Brownies – yum!

The Most Important Task On Your To Do List

by Kimberlee Stokes Affiliate Link Disclosure B

The Most Important Task On Your To Do List - The Peaceful Mom

pinit

To Do Lists – We all have them whether they are actually written down or simply floating around in our heads. As moms, those lists fill up quickly:

buy groceries

wash uniforms

prepare snacks for practice

make dentist appointment

pick up the dry cleaning

fix dinner

 

It is all too easy to become distracted with the seemingly urgent tasks that bombard us every day and to push the truly important parts of life to the side – and one of the most important items to add to that list is time off for YOU.

As I mentioned previously on the blog, I had the privilege this week of attending a conference to improve my public speaking. I received lots of great ideas and practical help (but very little sleep!). One of the concepts that I firmly believe, and which the conference speakers emphasized, is the need to prioritize in order to be successful in any endeavor.

No matter what you say your goals and values are, if you don’t schedule them, they don’t happen.

So I am taking my own advice and scheduling some much needed rest time for the next couple of days to regroup after all of the busyness. 

 

Stay tuned for lots of great information and inspiration coming your way next week and thanks for being a follower of The Peaceful Mom!
