Saturday's Shopping Trip (Beth's)

In case you had it in your head that I was perfect and always found great bargains, you can put that thought aside today! Two days ago, my son (who has yet to be born) decided to start antagonizing his mom early and caused my pelvic bone to drop on one side and twist. After physical therapy today and I thought I could handle shopping, but half way through forgot about saving money and concentrated on getting home quickly, which meant shopping at Target right down the street. I grabbed the necessities and even forgot milk. I didn’t do terrible, but I did miss tons of great deals this week at Meijer and Kroger!

Even worse, when I got home my husband wasn’t home yet. Since I realized standing and cooking wasn’t going to be an option, I fed my children a dinner of celery sticks dipped in peanut butter, grapes, cheese cubes, and Pop-Tarts! They loved it.
