Oh happy day…oh happy day!!! My mama is on her way to the US!!! As you are reading this I am either at the airport waiting to run up to her and give her the world’s biggest hug or she is already relaxing with me at our home hugged out (if such word exists).
At CVS I once again had to battle the addiction of buying cheap diapers. Seriously, how can I pass on paying $3 for a pack of huge diaper box that originally cost $23?! My conscious is not letting me, even though we don’t’ have children yet. I am also starting to get confused as to which stage of diapers sizes should I stock up on? Do children wear more of size 5 or size 3? Please help me! Your answer will be greatly appreciated, so I would know in a feature what size of diapers to buy.
Well, besides diapers I stocked up on beef jerky and some healthy snacks for my husband to take with him to the military camp in a few weeks. All the snacks cost me nothing, since I utilized extra care bucks.
Finally I stopped by Ingles with intentions of buying muffin liners. Ok…I need your help on this one too. I was SHOCKED when I saw a price tag on the muffin liners. I love baking muffins, but I absolutely hate cleaning the mess of leftover crumbs in the muffin tin. Any cheap suggestions? But I was doing a happy dance when I saw turkey bacon (natural/organic) on sale for $1.99, down from $5 dollars a pack. I picked up all 9 packs for my mama to eat when she comes and asked a meat dept. associate if he can reduce it further if I buy all that is on the shelf. He looked at me for a second and then told me that he can come down by $0.25 on each pack. To me a discount is a discount whether it is $1 off or $0.25. Needles to say, I paid $15.75 for 9 packs of all natural bacon and saved $45 dollars!!! After my shopping trip, I loaded my car with ice bags to keep the food cold and headed to church!
