December 21st spending

Total Spent...$28.77 on groceries.

I really think we are finally getting the hang of this coupon game :-) Our receipt said $51.xx, but with in store deals, coupons, and double coupons we saved about $20! Woohoo! I was super excited about my string cheese. I admit that I am addicted to cheese and bring string cheese with me to work everyday, so we typically buy the 24 store brand pack at just under $6. Well the 12 packs of a big brand were on sale for $2.99, which would have been slightly more expensive still, but...they had peelies on them for $1 off, so it only cost me $4 for like a months supply!!! (Is it bad that it doesn't go bad in a month?)

I'm hoping to finish my shopping after work and then maybe tackle some wrapping. Today marks the beginning of my crazy Christmas week...

Monday 12/22: Bible study Christmas party
Tuesday 12/23: Work Christmas party at Dave and Busters (hoping not to spend too much)
Wednesay 12/24: Christmas Eve service and party
Thursday 12/25: Christmas at in-laws in the morning, then driving to my family
Friday 12/26: Christmas with my mom's side in the AM and dad's side in the PM
Saturday 12/27: Wedding followed by a graduation party

I'm going to be super busy, so I apologize if I don't post much. I'm sure y'all understand :-)
