Well it’s been another week where the weather is the big news. We got something like 7 – 8 inches of snow on Wednesday night. My boys were elated and spent a good chunk of time outside sledding and building snowmen. Contrary to the picture above, they really did have gloves on at some point. Though, Jake did not wear his heavy jacket to play in the snow. You see he left BOTH of his coats at school. So he has something like 6 shirts on instead–hahaha!
I was happy to finally see some snow too. I figured it was time that there was actually a reason school was canceled–tee hee. My boys have only gone to school 1.5 days in the past TWO WEEKS!! While they love it now, I am not sure what the plan will be as far as making up all those missed days.
Please keep your fingers and toes crossed that this is the last of the snow. I am going to attempt to try to get caught up on housecleaning and laundry this weekend. Not sure if I can get it all done but maybe I can start to get back on track.
Luckily I did get a chance to go to the store before the snow hit. I went right after I got the boys off to school. It’s a good thing that I went immediately as I was texted while I was shopping that they had decided to let the kids out early. If I had waited I would have had to take the boys with me – yikes! I try very hard to avoid shopping with them now if possible. They can kill my budget faster than anything. They alway seem to “need” so many things that they see. Plus, it’s next to impossible to look for deals when I am trying to make sure they haven’t wandered off to the toy aisle.
So, I did manage to get a few things this week. With the gas card coupon I was right about on track for the week.
Squash – $1.37
Broccoli – $1.59
Avocados x 4 = $4
Cauliflower = $2.50
Potatoes = $3.79
Bananas = $1.26
Mushrooms = $2.50
Spinach = $2
Celery = $1.99
Grapes = $3.50
Milk = $3.79
Sargento Tastings x 3 = $4
Publix String Cheese = $3.50 ($1 DQ)
Smithfield Bacon = $4.99
Eggs = $3.79
Publix Creamer = $1.99
Half & Half = $2.69
Stevia in the Raw x 2 = $4 (two $1/1 IP)
Nature Valley Breakfast Biscuits x 2 = 69¢ ($2/2 PQ + $0.50/2 IP)
Lucky Charms x 2 = $2.39 ($1/2 IP)
Sparkle Paper Towels = $3.99 ($1/1 IP)
I was right at $50 this week. With the boys home plus some extra kids visiting (so their parents could work) everything is already just about wiped out. I am not sure if I will make it to Wednesday. I might end up having to grab a few things this weekend to hold us. It’s amazing how many snacks those kids need while they are home!
