Get ready, because this is a long post! Last week I had a LOT of money left over. Like, $20.00. So I decided to save it for this week, to buy pull-ups and other things that were on sale. I was completely out of pasta, and luckily Kroger had pasta on sale for $.49 so I stocked up! In fact, I may go back next week to get more because that’s the lowest price I’ve ever seen. =) I went to 4 different stores all this week, and I’m super tired! Let’s see what I got.
