Sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything...finding a quiet time is getting pretty hard around here especially since Garrison hasn't been sleeping well. He finally slept 11 hours last night...a continous 11 hours I might add. He has even had a decent nap today.
Since the popular thing to do right now is to change your blog(Franklin and Judy) I have decided I might take my blog in a somewhat new direction. Of course their will always be pictures of the boys and talk of our adventures...but I'm going to add my adventures at the grocery store. If any of you know me I am the price matching queen at Wal-Mart. I get all of the ads, write out a menu and list of what is on sale...and then take off to Wally World with coupons in hand. It's sort of like a treasure hunt...let's see what I can get for the least amount of money. And yes Laura, I am still making healthy balanced meals...in case you were wondering...did you notice the organic lettuce? :)
Today I got all of this for $54.00. I price matched most things..including the hamburger...which was $3.20lb but price matched at $1.77. I then had a coupon from the circular for $3.00 off ground beef. I purchased 5 pounds of ground beef for $4.96! I had some meat already, including chicken and steak so this helped a lot with the budget for the next two weeks! I got two pounds of strawberries, a cantaloupe, grapes, two dozen eggs, and two loaves of bread!
I also got two boxes of cereal, Raisin Bran and Shredded Mini Wheats for $1.43 each using a coupon found on http://www.coupons.com/ and price matching them at $2.18 a box. I'm not an expert and there are plenty of people who are so much better at this than me...but it's a start and I really enjoy doing it.
Here is a pic of my grandio purchase(and some cute pics of the boys):
