Snow Play

Well my kids have been begging to go out in the snow. So finally I was able to go and get them new snow pants and Ali new boots. I don't know why I didn't get any last year on sale at the end of the season. But anyways I got them some today, and as soon as Ali got home from school, she put them on and out they all went in the snow. Bill came home from work and helped them build a snowman, here is a pic!

They had lots of fun. I am not liking the cold weather, I must be getting old, it didn't used to bother me!

Wow! I can't believe there is only 43 days till Christmas! I have no idea what I am getting my kids for Christmas. If anyone has ideas for your own kids let me know what they are. My kids are 6-5-3, all girls. Any ideas would be great. I am going tommorrow on a shopping trip to Michigan City outlets with a bunch of ladies from church, should be a good time. Hopefully I can start a little bit of my shopping tommorrow! Have a good evening!

Kroger Trip Today Well Worth It Or Not??

Well today I went and did my grocery shopping, something I used to dread to do. Now I kind if enjoy it, not only am I getting food for my family I am saving lots of money, or maybe I should say LOTS & LOTS of money!

So you wonder how I did it well check out this blog to find out more, she can explain it better than me. On to my grocery shopping trip, Here is a pic: (Something that I never thought I would do is take a pic of my grocery shopping:)

I got all this for $19.xx Awesome deals, the purex soap I had a rain check from last week, each bottle cost me .50 each. And the blocks of cheese in the pics are not part of the Mega Event. I have to support my husbands cheese addicition:) Seriously he will eat half the block in one sitting, and if my Dad is here forget it all three of them would be gone in one sitting and now Chloe is always asking for cheese.
Here is list of what I got today:
2-lint rollers
2-scotch brite scrubbers
2-muffin mix
2-cookie mix
8-Hot cocoa mix
4-condensed milk
3-Stouffers Single serve (great for lunches at work)
2-Duncan Hines frosting
2-bic razor
2-toaster strudels
2-Packs of Dial
2-Betty Crocker Fruit snacks
2-Betty crocker potatoes

These were part of the Mega Event Buy 10 of them automaticaly get $5.00 off. I did 2 transactions.
Not part of the deal-
1-Cottonelle- .25 after coupon
4-purex soap- .50 each after coupons
2- Duncan hines cake mix- 1.00 each
3- Blocks of cheese which were 3/$5

So all that for $19.xx I thought that was AWESOME! Some week I would like to do my coupon shopping and then go to Wal-XXXX and buy the exact same thing and see how much I actually save, I think I would faint. I don't know if Wal-XXXX really saves us more! Like they say, anyways let me know what great deals you found this week! I would say this trip was WELL WORTH IT!!
Happy Shopping!
