Next week will be busy as we are wrapping up the final baseball games plus an end of the year party at my house where we’ll cookout and do S’mores! Of course Halloween is next week too. Lots of fun happenings next week so I think we will take it easy this weekend. We have no definite plans so we might just relax a bit. I am thinking that I might spend a little time digging in the dirt. It’s about time to put out some pansies!
I told you guys last week that I was somewhat trapped in my house because of our driveway pour. It’s been so nice coming home via a super smooth path. We endured that bumpy gravel driveway for over a year so I am now a very happy gal! I was able to go to Publix last weekend and finally shop. You will see that my totals are a bit high – even with a small gift card. The trip was necessary as I was overdue for a stock up on several things. We also needed fruits and veggies.
Have you guys noticed what hasn’t been on my totals for a very long time now? There’s no soda on my list anymore! I am so proud of my hubby. He has been drinking water instead of soda for months now! Now, he may get a Diet Coke when we go out to dinner but I no longer have to buy it to have on hand here at the house. Gotta love those fun changes that also help the ol’ budget too!
The only thing I missed last week was picking up my Scotties tissues. I have a pretty good stockpile but I had printed a bunch of coupons but left them in my printer when I left. Oh well…hopefully no one gets the sniffles too bad this season. And yes…that looks like a bunch of english muffins but they are so easy to do for breakfast with the Laughing Cow that I stocked up on a few weeks ago. The muffins freeze great so they won’t go bad!

After a small Publix gift card, I was still at almost $95 this week. I needed some maple syrup for a recipe so I figured I’d knock out a Try Me Tuesday while I was at it. Some weeks are better than others I suppose. This one is a bit of a hit…but I got everything we needed and was able to add to my pantry. It will all work out in the end
