At VV I got several grow into items, since I don't know how the new lead laws will affect second hand stores. Anyhow, 16 items for $25: a chair, 5 pairs of shoes for the kids, 3 pairs of jammies (one not pictured), a shirt, 2 pairs of shorts, a sweater, a pair of wool pants, the most darling dress in the world, and one of their calendars (for free).
Here are pics of just the dress. I think I'll try to make a copycat for Chick, but in a different color.
Lets see...what else..... Laundry, and yesterday was grocery shopping. Albertsons had "double the manufacturer's coupon" coupons this past week, so I gathered 4 of those (good for 3 coupons) and used my 12 best coupons to have them match. It didn't turn out to be the GREATEST savings, because I haven't gotten any new coupons since Babe was born & haven't really been doing shopping since then either, so a lot of my coupons had to be thrown out because they were expired. But I did get some good loot. The cool part is that I was able to get brands that I've been wanting to test out--and it's all healthy : )
I also watched "Run, Fatboy, Run." Thanks Lorna & Sindea for the recommendation. I will say that I'm not recommending it hands down myself, due to language and some other stuff, however I really liked it! I liked it enough that although it was a free Monday rental, I'm going to rerent it to watch when HH can watch it with me (I watched it during naptime while I folded cloths).
Yeah, I liked it enough to spend a dollar to see it again...sometimes I realize how cheap I am and it's ridiculous.
Anyhow, that's our life this week. I'll post pics of the blessing dress when it's done.
