A Good Shopping Day!
We were at Walmart this morning at 8:15 AM ready to go! Our freezers were completely empty - it doesn't usually happen, but I had used my last meal up this last week. Time to cook again! I am cooking for a client of mine this weekend as well, so off we were to shop for our 45 meals plus the 20 for my client. I knew it was a BIG shopping day, and decided to put Callie in the backpack carrier to allow for maximum cart usage! The boys were great - they were in superhero costumes and were Batman and Robin...very helpful superheros! They were thrilled to get a box of Transformer Fruit Snacks (a box of 10 bags for $1.50 is one of the BEST treats I've found for them!!) and then we were off to BJs...to get an enormous amount of meat! :) We were finished up by 10:30, dropped our refrigerated and frozen stuff off at home, and then went straight to the pool! We lucked out and saw the Jansen Family there and enjoyed swimming with them for a few hours. The kids are down for naps and I've finally got all the groceries situated and ready for cooking this weekend. The best news? I saved $27 in coupons, and have another $10 rebate coming my way!!! Now THAT'S a good shopping day! :)
