This week I only went to one store. But, I took ALL SIX KIDS. So, I think I get extra points for that. Don’t you?
The kids did great. It helped that I made my expectations of their behavior very clear as well as the consequences. Losing your half hour of computer time can be a major bummer in the summer. I was really proud of them; everyone was so helpful as we managed two carts through our local market. Here’s what we nabbed:
6 loaves of clearanced bread $0.99 each
a cherry pie $1.99
butter $2/# (not the best deal around, but I didn’t want to make a trip to Costco just for butter)
organic lemonade after sale and coupon $0.75
cherry tomatoes $1.50
cukes $0.69 each
nectarines and peaches $0.49/#
pineapple $1.50 each
red bell peppers $0.77 each
watermelon $1.50 each!
serrano peppers $0.19 for 4 chiles
Total for pictured: $54.22
