Money saving day ...

I am very happy with me today. I had an uncommon amount of energy -- not quite sure what that was about -- and hit the commissary, Walgreens and Dollar Tree for some deals.

(And now you get to hear about them. That's right. If you stop reading I'll never know but, you know, don't).

I noticed we were out of chicken on my way out the door so I knew that I [possibly would go over my weekly attempted grocery budget today. I figured it's OK since I've been under it for several weeks.

When I hit the chicken case I was VERY excited because Official Chicken Guy was stocking the shelf with pre packaged meat that reach its best buy date today and was therefore marked down at least $1 a lbs. So THAT was fun.

Then I went to Walgreens and got the following:

2 things of shaving cream for Luke
2 things of shaving cream for Amy
1 thing of cough drops for Amy when she is sick
4 cadbury eggs for Luke
1 thing of cetaphil face wash

... for $9!

Anyway, that was exciting.

Now Luke and I are watching Bolt (free Redbox Monday!) ... exciting. And NEXT week we'll get to watch Slumdog Millionaire! I'm so excited.


  1. um, I hate to tell you this, but I think they call that sudden burst of energy near the end of pregnancy "nesting". I know you nest all the time so it's hard to tell, but the spike in energy is a trait, I'm pretty sure. :)

    Also, how did you get all of that stuff for $9. Just the shaving cream should have been that much!!

  2. Slumdog Millionaire is a great movie. We went and saw it at the 3 dollar theater.
