On Thursday night, I was able to go grocery shopping with Emily, while Dan stayed home with baby. We had to got to several stores in order to get the best deals I had planned out.
I find Target to be an evil store, because they have such good looking food, and I always buy more than I should. But my budget was only $100 total, so I had to stay focused. At the checkout, my heart sank because the total came to over $65. Then I realized that the cashier hadn't scanned the coupons yet! We got to watch as the amount got lower and lower, and it ended at $49. Whew!!!! Yay coupons.
Then on to Hugo's for the rest and we had the same experience which was awesome. I like using coupons because I can still buy food and items in the brands we like, and even try new items without going over budget. Now if I can just get a handle on my spending for hobbies, we might get somewhere.
