I’m not trying to trick you, but today is Saturday. The hub is tailgating for the Texans playoff game, so I figured, Texans usually play on Sunday and I usually post on Friday… why not do a happy medium and not be lazy on Saturday?! Sounds good, right? BTW, Sister is still asleep [it's 2:30 Houston time] just a sayin’.

I went to CVS twice this week, partly because I have been on vacation for the past 2.5 weeks and I forgot how to do math and I forgot 2 coupons at home on the first trip. Cool, right?

Well, I haven’t made it to the grocery store this week, except to meet with a new coupon buddy, HI KARLA!, but no shopping was done in that trip. I have been craving chili like nobody’s business, even if it is 78 degrees in December, I just love chili… and I have a thing of ground sausage chilling in the refrigerator that calls my name every time I open the door. I did, however, make it to Walgreens to use up some expiring Register Rewards and to CVS for more razors and shampoo… and to use expiring Extra Care Bucks.

TOMORROW is DECEMBER, people! Can you believe how fast this year has just flown by?! I can’t because I turn 30 in 49 days and want to savor every moment of my 20′s, my youth. Heh.

This week I felt like this:

Cracker Jacks

Which explains why I have to post this…

Put up ALL the Groceries

…because I was putting away my last box of diet coke and remembered to take a picture – yea, that’s not happening now. I have not been to the grocery store for normal “people who aren’t living on the stock pile” food in about 2 weeks, so I figure it’s about time. When your sick, the last thing you care about is a coupon or a deal, am I right? The stores pretty much owned me, but I now have 5 chocolate bars and 2 pints of Blue Bell ice cream to devour when my tummy stops rumbling. Without further ado, the matchups~>

An amazing thing happened this week – an HEB opened it’s doors right at the front of my neighborhood and I am super happy [I still love you Randalls']. I was considering letting the crowds die down before heading over there – so maybe a week or two since Thanksgiving is next week – but we all know, that won’t happen. If you follow me on Facebook, you saw my thoughts… if you don’t, you should:

That being said, I really do not care what is in the pantry since I will not be cooking at all this weekend.
