Edition 5: Sunday Savings

Okay ya'll, so I had to meet Matt's mom half-way again to pick Kate up from her "Weekend at Grammy's" which means I had to do my grocery shopping tonight after church, which means I had Matt and Kate along for the ride, which meant my shopping trip was doomed needed to be shortened, which means I could only hit up our local W/D for my savings, which meant...j/k.

But I have been thinking, and I've decided to only go to all three of my stores (Publix, Walgreens, and Winn-Dixie) twice a month instead of every Sunday, and just do W/D all by its lonesome the other couple of Sundays. Going to all three stores takes a lot of time, especially since Publix and Walgreens are a good 30 minutes from where I live.

I was especially proud of myself tonight because I did not have my coach (Sal Gal) with me and still managed to rack up the savings.

I got about $70.00 worth of groceries for only $36 and some change.

Not too shabby.

And because I love all things random:

1. I just recently finished painting and hanging the belly cast I made when I was pregnant with Kate. I plan on posting some pics here shortly.

2. Matt is usually not as quick-witted as....oh, I don't know......ME, but he said something yesterday that I thought was pretty funny.
I asked him if he would please hang the shelf I've been wanting him to hang in my closet and he responds with, "Sure, honey" (in an extremely overdone sappy tone).
And then he looks at his brother, Adam, and says, "If one more person needs me to do something, I swear..."
"I heard that!" I snap back.
To which he comes back with, "Oh, I wasn't talking about you."
And then he points to his dad and stepmom's house. And says, "I was talking about Chaka Khan and Chaka Can't over there."

There is nothing better than savings on a receipt! I'm a HUGE coupon shopper & love to see how much I saved! Now, if only I'd take that much money out & put it back....wouldnt that be a great idea!

That's funny. Hubbys can bust out sometimes too. =)
How did Kate make it with the g-parents?

I MUST know how you saved all that money at the grocery store. My DH has FORBIDDEN me from EVER going to Publix again! I just spend a fortune EVERY single time I visit the store....Help????
