It's been 8 years since I've attempted to go grocery shopping with a baby in tow. 8 very long years. Any of those crazy voices in my head telling me that another baby would be amazing have been forever silenced. Friday is grocery shopping day and now that I have my 2 new little charges, nothing changed. We headed off around 10am and like usual hit all three stores on my route. However, upon returning home at 12:30pm, I'm much more exhausted than ever before!! Lugging the car seat and keeping track of a 5yr old who decided to hop his way through the day was a nightmare. If Boy Oompa hadn't come along, I would still be at the store!!
I went over budget by $8.79 but scored some really good deals.
Kroger: Dawn $1.97 (bought 2 and had $1.25 in coupons), Crest $1.99 ($0.75 coupon) and all their veggie/chip dips were $1 each.
Got all the goodies I need for Thanksgiving, plus began the stockpile for the baking season!!
