Valentine's Day 2009

The morning of Valentine's day started with the kids chomping at the bit to get into their candy, m&ms, lollipops, conversation hearts, and a mini box of Whitman's chocolate candy. They were very happy with their own individual bags. Then it was time for our Valentine's Day breakfast. We had strawberry french toast with bacon, OJ, and Mimosa's (for the adults of course). It was delicious.
Then DH and CJ were off to a birthday party, the two little one's and I stayed at home. Justin was still trying to get over the flu, and Hailey is having some major anxiety issues if she is not within sight of me at all times, and I mean all times-even bathroom time!!!!Lol, is that too much information? Anyway.........When DH and CJ were back from the party we had Herbed chicken with rice, a nice salad and strawberry cupcakes for dessert! Yes it was a wonderful Valentine's day and a budget friendly one spent at home. :)

How was your Valentine's Day, what did you guys do? Any budget friendly ideas for next year?

Freebies in the Mail

I received these free items in the mail this past week.
My dog really liked the "Nutrish" dog food by Rachael Ray.

Weekend Adventure

This past week I talked about how we were going to check out Aldi, the grocery store. We headed there after our trip to Chuck E. Cheese. (you would not think that the economy is suffering by any means if you would have waited in line half an hour to get in that place Saturday, it was crazy!- but the kids had fun!)

Hailey used almost all her tokens riding with Chuck E. Cheese.
(The boys were M.I.A. for any pictures)

So after all the excitement we were on to Aldi. We deposited our quarter to get our cart and we were off. Right away I was surprised at the prices. They have their own brands but also had some name brand items that we use and the prices were lower than the ones that I pay at Food Lion with my MVP. The milk was 3.09 a gallon which is what I usually pay at Sam's Club, the eggs were .59 cent, hamburger buns .85 cent, canned vegetable .49 cent just to name a few of the savings. We ended up with a cart full and our total was $58.62. We did get lots snacks for the Super Bowl but those were a deal so I was happy with the overall price for the amount of things that we left with. I was a little confused when we got to the check out. You put your items on the belt and there is a another cart positioned at the end, the cashier rings the item and just puts it into the other cart (hense the hurried check out). There are bags in slots on the side of the isle, grab those and purchase them with your groceries if you need them. After checking out you move over to a long counter at the front of the store and bag/box (they do have boxes in bins free of charge) your items. When you are done loading your groceries you take your cart back up to the front of the store and "hook" it back up and your quarter will come back to you from the slot you inserted it in. I will visit again and stock up!

So I had to go back and get 2 more Loreal Products since I had not reached my limit.
I purchased some other items that are not pictured that were not ECB earners so I am not going into detail on this transaction, the most important thing is that I received $10.00 ECBs from this transaction also. Not too bad for this week.
