So, I’ve been posting about my frugal shopping weeks for a while now and it has been fun… but I do not think it will be as fun as my next feature. I want to see your FRUGAL FINDS as well!

I just love seeing the amazing deals people get; it never ceases to amaze me how coupon-smart people rock the sales.

This week I trucked it to Randall’s, Walgreens, PetSmart and CVS and spent $37.15 [only $14.07 from my pocket, however].

Randall’s

See, what had happened was… I went shopping on Sunday after beating the crowds away at Pier 1, Old Navy, Home Goods and Bath and Body Works – by the time I got to the grocery store, I was pooped. So, when I got home I flattened out on the couch and my awesome B helped with the unloading unloaded everything, therefore there is no fancy picture to share.

This week we are preparing for our vacation to Florida, so there is not much we need to get out there and shop since most of our next week shopping will be done when we arrive at our destination.

We are subsidizing some of the groceries and preparing a meal one night, to lower the “dining out” cost, that need a few items not already in the cabinet so I hit up HEB, Walgreen’s and CVS this week and spent $49.70.

I got to make my grocery and pharmacy rounds this morning [on a Wednesday!?], after seeing the Dr. for my sore throat.

Shopping on a Wednesday is strange for me because first, I have a grown up job to tend to and second, we have dinner with C on Wednesday nights during the school year. I take B to work on Wednesday mornings and head back home to get to work [this lucky duck gets to work en mi casa!]. But, the summer is upon us and we don’t have our Wednesday dinner tonight, but, we do get to pick up our home skillet on Friday!

This time last year I had the WORST case of Strep EVER. It was the first time I had ever had it, so it took me under. Today is my third day of hopping up on Vitamin C because my throat feels like it’s caving in… just like last year. Apparently, there is a virus going around that’s causing it - I think my pretty little niece brought it over on Sunday, isn’t she just so cute:

Muffin + Dakota

I stopped at CVS, Target, Walgreen’s, Randall’s and HEB and spent only $91 bucaroos.

June 2 Grocery Trip

I finally had a chance to make my grocery and pharmacy rounds today, there are quite a few deal to be had. I stopped at CVS, Target, PetSmart, Randall’s and Walgreens [in that order] and spent only $54 bucaroos. 

We had a blast this weekend at the beach, but we got a little toasty, I chaperoned C’s field trip to the Zoo on Tuesday and we went out again to the P-land for our last Wednesday OOh-Rah before summer starts. My baby girl is now a 7th grader, time flies, she is amazing. But, now is the time I need to check my stock to make sure I am well ready for a 7th grader, and friends, to mooch off all of the fun and delicious wares of the H-pantry.
