More savings and gorgeous weather.

Man the people that went away for spring break this year, really wasted their money, this week has been GORGEOUS. Weds. we took the kids to the zoo (mom and I took Faith and Chey) and had a great time. The weather was so nice and it was so fun now that Faith is a little older. Thursday we went up to see papa and had a picnic outside with him, that was fun too and i really think getting out in the sunshine was good for him. Yesterday i did my grocery shopping for the week and had an awesome time, now that i am doing this coupon thing i am loving shopping, it's like a game. Some of my good buys were 10 packages of Huggies flushable moist wipes for a only 23 cents per package!!! I got 4 boxes of cinnamon life cereal for 58 cents per box. I also got several items totally FREE, for example i had a $1 coupon for malt o meal cereal, they were on sale for 10/$10 (which on a side note you don't have to buy 10 of them) and so with the coupon, totally FREE, there were a few others like that too. I did have to buy quite a bit this week that wasn't a coupon item, but was on sale or cheap because we needed things, but in total i spent $157 on a trunk FULL of groceries so i think that i did really well, considering there was quite a bit of meat and other items included in that total. Off to enjoy another gorgeous day!!!

I am totally jealous of your nice weather! We have gotten snow and HAIL ! We had a few days that were just wonderful followed by snow and snow and snow. It isn't sticking, but that isn't the point! haha
