Bulk Order Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast $1.69/lb


Are you looking for a way to obtain a stock-up price on 100% natural boneless, skinless, no added hormones or additives chicken breast? I have good news…

Zaycon Foods is coming to a city near you in April. Get a 40lb case of fresh boneless, skinless, chicken breast for $1.69/lb! Orders must be placed before the event sells out! You’ll have to go pick up your order at a select location near you on a designated date.

Chicken can then be split into appropriate meal size and frozen! If you’re thinking that 40lbs is way too much meat for your family to consume, then split with a friend!

There are many locations to choose from! If you’d like to place an order or see a location near you just head on over HERE and register.

Have you ordered from Zaycon before? We would love to hear your feedback!

When Our Income Decreased By Half….


We have seen our family’s monthly income slowly decrease over the past two years. It’s funny how God works! Never in a million years would we have moved to the country to more land, higher utility costs, and higher property taxes knowing that our monthly income would decrease by half. But God was kind to us and moved us during a season of plenty  only to prepare for a season of faith.  While we need to be careful about where every dollar goes, and  live a pretty bare bones type of lifestyle,God is faithful and He continues to provide.

When we would like to take a trip, plant a garden, fix a car, or  make a large purchase, we bring it before The Lord in prayer.  I’ll be honest and confess this is a brand new concept in our life. Before, we never truly relied on The Lord to provide. We could purchase what we needed when we needed it, in our old life . Then we had a catastrophic year, half being spent in the hospital, draining all money we had with gas, eating on the go, and medical bills. We are truly thankful for friends, family, and complete strangers blessing us through that year!  We were able to stay afloat, not worry about finances. But in all honestly, we are still trying to recover. We were emotionally, physically, spiritually, mentally, and financially drained. But the good news is, we are on the mend! Praise The Lord!

Here are a few ways we tightened up our wallets over the past couple months;

1. Trusting in The Lord!

We have witnessed some amazing miracles this year, by simply praying for a need. The Lord has been faithful with meeting all our needs.

I’d encourage you to start a family prayer journal and keep track of your prayer request and answers! The Lord loves to answer prayers from the mouth of babes!

2. Simplify Grocery Shopping;

We are now doing the majority of our shopping at Aldi and Costco. Meijer we stop at for our favorite butter, produce sales, and a few coupon deals.

I have found that I can get in and out of Aldi’s in less than 30 minutes with a cart full of groceries for less than $100. There’s no toys (usually), not too many fun eye catching products that attract the kids. I don’t have to feel bad for not using coupons. It’s just a win-win in this season of life.


3. Giving Things Up;

We had to give up a few things. One item being juice. 5 kiddos drinking juice everyday adds up. I’d estimate we were spending $75+ a month on JUICE! Now its water or homemade lemonade (water,stevia, and lemon juice). Another item is snack-y type foods. We now make our own snacks, (trail mix, popcorn, fruit salad, banana bread- are a few of our favorites).

We made the decision to not do bee keeping this year. My husbands bee colony died during the winter. Then the bee boxes got turned into a mice hut. We ended up burning his bee boxes. We had a lot of other needs come up, and couldn’t afford to invest in more bees and boxes this season. So we had to let that fun hobby go this year. I’ve been secretly praying for a swarm of bees to appear on one of our trees, though!


4. Simple Menu Planning

We have specific meals we eat throughout the week. Which might seem boring to most, but it’s how we making eating affordable! Ha!

A few dinner meals you’ll see us eating every week include- tacos, spaghetti, haystacks, breakfast for dinner, pasta, chicken, and homemade pizza. Included with each meals we’ll have fruit, fresh veggies, or a salad.

Breakfast is the kids choice. They are responsible for their own breakfast. The big kids help the little kids. Choices are usually waffles, toast or cereal. On the weekends we have our personal chef home (hubby) to cook us an eggstravagant breakfast! :)

Lunch is easy around here too, PB&J, Quesadillas, or leftovers. Along with lunch we make a smoothie. Right now we are on a green smoothie kick, which includes green grapes, lemon, spinach and honey.


5. Living off the land

Okay, I’m kidding here, but one day soon we hope to have our hens laying eggs, and our garden providing extra produce to our table! This picture is of a morel mushroom the kids found growing on our land this spring. .

I’d love to hear some changes you had to implement to save money?
