I’m trying to stay out of the stores this week since we need to use up what we have in the house. But, Sunday afternoon I did tackle the two drugstores (CVS and Walgreens) — with ALL SIX CHILDREN in tow. Yes, I am woman. Hear me roar. Nothing too exciting on the drugstore fronts: […]
Back in the days – the pre-coupon/pre-Dave Ramsey days – I was pretty snobby about my purchases. I thought name brands meant something. And I smugly looked down my nose at my lil’ sister who used cheap shampoo as body wash. I only bought the best. Well, come to find out, the best isn’t really […]

And since, food is SO much more fun than matching socks, I thought I’d share some meal planning helps on the web. Hillbilly Housewife – The name is kind […]
It felt wierd to realize that I had not been in a grocery store for about 3 weeks. FishBaby will be two weeks old tomorrow and for that last prenatal week, well, I stayed in bed! That explains why we only spent $200 on groceries in August. (Thanks Mom, Dad, and Auntie Jamie!) So yesterday […]
