Are you wondering if I fulfilled my account of doing the pantry? Well, I will keep you in suspense no longer! I did it! I organized my pantry yesterday! It felt so good to clean out and redo. Now, I just need to get to the junk drawers, which seem to be every drawer, and the other cabinets. Do I say I am going to finish all that this week? I think I will give that until next week.
I made 2 dinners yesterday as Mike's family all came over. I made a pot roast with all the veggies and a whole chicken stuffed with onions and rice. I also got to get rid of some fudge. We had fudge, pudding, strawberries and chocolate for dessert. It was our anniversary dinner with them. I also had baby Paige yesterday who is starting to walk!!!! BLOW MY MIND, why don't you! She far surpasses Mackenzie's physical abilities. Those babies are going to be 1 in 23 days!!! Oh, where did it go?
Madison is back to home school schedule and is having some good fun. We are doing Skippyjon right now. We are also working on more cooking activities and learning about shopping and coupons! Start her nice and early on saving money!
A good friend of mine is beginning a year of saving money and asked me to give a breakdown of how I do coupons. I spent a good amount of time sending this out, so I thought I would do a post on it. I will post this later on in a separate blog. If you are interested to see what I do, you can read that.
****If you use Johnson and Johson Soap Buddies (or just want some free soap for kid's bathroom, Sunday's paper had a $1 off coupon and they are .99 at Target and I have heard even cheaper at Walmart. In some places this means an overage!****
I only have until Saturday to finish my query letter for my kid's books to fulfill what I said I would. Once thatt query letter is written, all it needs is an address! Big steps for me!
If you missed grocery trips this week, see my previous posts!
