I'm tired. Seriously. Still, I'm glad that this is over for another two weeks! Ha!
I have most of the shopping done for the month of September except for maybe a few items. Okay so our trip went like this;
Our bank---->our favorite thrift store---->our mortgage bank--->Aldi--->Sam's Club--->Bi-lo---->Aldi again--->gas station--->Family Dollar--->home sweet home.
I cannot tell you how happy I was to get home! The children were too. All in all it was a good trip though. So I won't complain....much. So what did I get? Here's the rarely typed but will do it this time list of what I purchased.
(4) 2 liter colas
(2)cans sweetened condensed milk
cherry pie filling
ground black pepper
2 packs sliced cheese
4 packs flour tortillas
3 cans diced tomatoes
3 cans tomato paste
2 boxes seasoned rice
2 packs toilet paper
snack crackers(Ritz type)
hot dog buns
sugar free gum
cinnamon graham crackers
25# bread flour
5# mozzerella cheese
5# cheddar cheese
Aldi (again, because milk turned out to be cheaper here this time and it was on the way home)
2 loaves of bread (for a quick,easy lunch once home)
plug in air freshener refills
Total from today: $216.76
Total for month : $433.00 (rounded up to nearest dollar)
This will be almost enough to feed our family three meals a day, diaper the youngest at night and nap(she's being potty trained), put Goodnight type protection on the bedwetters, have enough cleaners, paper products and splurges such as air fresheners. :) I did not use any coupons except from some that were in one of those coupon distributers for some Goodnights that were also on clearance. So I was able to stock up on those for a little under $4 a pack. :) I also splurged on some soda but, hey, for .59 each, we can afford some soda here and there. I even bought two mops too! Why two? So we can get the job done twice as fast with two people mopping at once. :)
My next post I will try and type out our menu for the next two weeks.
