This week was pretty interesting in terms of what we had to buy! I have a busy week, with MOPS and then a MOPS chili cook-off this Saturday, so I’m doing a lot of extra cooking which means more ingredients. I also bought a few stock-up items like toothpaste for Allison (can’t beat 24 cents a tube!) and bar soap. Kroger’s really good for their Mega Sales, and I took advantage of it this week!

I’m so excited that strawberries are going on sale now, too. Allison seems to be getting tired of bananas… I don’t see why, she only eats one every day! But as soon as I started buying strawberries again, she’d ask for more… and more. They were $2.00 a pound last week, and $1.67 at Meijer starting this week, so it’s strawberries for everybody! Take a look at my busy shopping trips:
