I had a lot of fun shopping this week… mostly because of where I got to shop. =) Going to Ollie’s is always a treat because I never know what I’ll find, and this time it was Annie’s mac and cheese, hot chocolate, and candy! There were a lot of stores this week, which seems like a lot, but we tend to spread out our shopping over a few days. Allison also likes to help out, which makes things go more smoothly, and of course, it’s much easier to shop multiple stores when we have one child!

We’ve been eating out of our pantry a lot, so if you haven’t read my grocery posts recently, you might be a little confused as to where all this extra food is coming from! Every week, I buy the essential milk/eggs/fresh produce, but also things here and there to stock my freezer when they go on sale. Little by little, I’ve just created a good-sized stockpile and can simultaneously eat from my pantry/re-fill it at the same time! It takes a little time and effort, but it’s a really good system. Here’s what I bought this week:
