Wednesday Update

The problem with going to bed early is that you wake up at midnight all out of whack!

Today was a low key day. We went to the surplus store and I got 20 quarts of soy milk for $.99 each (it is $2.69 on sale for a half gallon so I saved a little bit). The thing I like about it is I don't have to refrigerate it until it's opened. At first I thought that was weird then dad said "um, there isn't any dairy in it". Oops oh ya :) It expires in June so we won't have a problem drinking all 20. I also got a loaf of bread, 12 bottles of green tea and a box of fancy pretzels. Total spent $25.80

We also went to Kroger. In the past two days Dad gave me another 18 pounds of grapefruit so we have that to eat up (luckily the baby and I both love grapefruit). I also bought fresh spinach for the baby, broccoli, asparagus, zucchini, cabbage, grape tomatoes and 2 bags of fish. I am not eating well which is funny because I make sure the baby is balanced every day. Somewhere along the way I stopped making good food for myself and I have gained weight as a result. So I am going low meat or meat free and boosting my veggie intake to loose weight. Like a lot of weight! Wish me luck!

We had snow today, I tried to take pictures of it falling but that didn't work. I don't have any baby pictures today, I am a slacker mommy!

Total $ spent today was $25.80 at McCoys and $24.13 at Kroger. I am counting this against my March grocery budget :)

Ok I know, boring post. I'll be better tomorrow - bye!

Not a boring post to me! Good deals! Did you grow up learning to be frugal? I say this because your dad gave you 18 lbs of grapefruit? If you did, I think it's great! I can't remember growing up and learning to be frugal...I start started a while ago and I am amazed.

I love this post too. I love to hear what you spend $ on how you spend it. It's like a little peak into someone's bank account or something! Have you ever been to this site: It actually makes me spend more money because there are such good deals! P.S. - how the heck did you pay your mortgage off so fast?

It was part of an estate sale and it was really cheap :)
