Have you noticed how quickly your pantry gets emptied during the summer? As it is, I do a lot of grocery shopping, but during summer months I find myself having to stock up even more. With all of the fun summer activities happening, the kids are hungrier and thirstier than ever. Sometimes I feel like I barely went shopping, when I look in the fridge and again it is empty. That is why I enjoy being a Sam's Club Member. For my family, bulk shopping on certain items is a lot more convenient and affordable year-round, but especially during the summer months. This weekend I had to visit Sam's Club specifically to take advantage of some Instant Savings on some of my family's favorites. These are staple items that I use all the time to make quick easy meals when there is not a lot of time to cook.Whenever these items go on sale, you bet I am there to stock up.
I love Sam's Club pricing already, especially because the family sizes give me more for my buck. But this week there are some super Instant Savings deals that you need to go check out:

  • KRAFT American Singles: Currently featured in the Sam’s Club Instant Savings Booklet at $1.75 off for a value of $5.03. Always made with real milk, Individually wrapped, No artificial preservatives or flavors, Excellent source of calcium. One of the items that just flies out of my fridge.

Today was one of those crazy summer days. Not only did I spend the morning getting Sammy registered at school (already!), I then had all the kiddos over for a play date. The Koolaid Jammers were an absolute life saver! Suddenly, as always happens with kids, they all got grumpy and hungry and ready for a nap. I knew I didn't have a lot of time to cook something, so I pulled out my Sam's Club goodies and put together a quick dinner with the KRAFT Easy Mac Cups. These are super convenient that way, having them around is a life saver with my older kids too, because if hard pressed, they can make these on their own. Within minutes I had a warm, hearty dinner for the kiddos.

Mac & Cheese Con Frijolitos (4 cups)
KRAFT Easy Mac Cups
2 Cups water
1 1/2 cups pre-cooked beans
1/2 cup shredded cheese

Prepare the KRAFT Easy Mac Cups as per instructions on cup. Mix a couple of spoonfuls of beans and sprinkle cheese on top. Easy!

After a long day of play, the warm goodness of the Mac & Cheese plus frijolitos, really filled them up. It didn't take me more than 15 minutes to get them all fed and off to their house for an overdue nap. I love these summer days, and I especially love that Kraft foods let me come up with fast, easy meals without a lot of hassle and in minimal time. I don't want to spend all my summer nights cooking, do you?

Don't forget you only have until July 20th to enjoy Sam's Club Instant Savings on these KRAFT products!
