Note to Self:

Note to Self: 

When going shopping to stock up for your no spending 2 week period make sure and double, even triple, check to make sure you have your shopping list, competitor ads to price match and coupons with you. Especially if you live 30 minutes away from the grocery store.

And, to answer my friend Stephanie.....Oh, yes I did. :( 

To make matters worse it was rainy and like 38 degrees and I had all 4 kids with me. But, my mom was there to help too.  I had to make the decision of whether or not to drive all the way home (30 minutes), get my stuff and drive back to the store (another 30 minutes). If I drove home I would be getting back to the grocery store at like 5 pm so it would be getting dark and I would risk it turning icy on the way home. Why I waited until so late in the day is beyond me. So, I made the deicsion not to drive the extra hour (total) and spend the gas, which would take away from the money I was saving anyways. I pretty much cringed at my grocery total though. But, at least we'll have food to eat and can embark on our no spending 2 weeks and Eat From the Pantry Challenge.

On a side note; some people can be so rude. I know all you other moms with many littles know what I'm talking about. So, if you aren't a MOMY and see one out and about I think just about the worst thing you can do is look at her and then look at your 2 teenage daughters and laugh together under your breath.  For the record we chose life for our children and count them as a blessing!

Oh and HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2010 is gonna be a great one!

  1. I'm glad it all worked out! And what on Earth was that woman laughing at?? She's probably just jealous that she doesn't have 4 beautiful babies like you! :)


    Oh...I put anonymous because I wasn't sure what to click on "Comment as" underneath.
