I know I only go to the store twice a week, but it seems like it's almost a daily thing!  I'm sure it seems that way to ya'll to, as I'm constantly posting about my trips.  I promise, I really do only go twice a week though!

Oh, did anyone notice the new background?  I get bored of the backgrounds quickly, so I've decided when the seasons and holidays change, I'll change too!  So, with the slightly-like fall weather we had last weekend, I decided it was time to step into fall.  Maybe my background will encourage the weather to cool off a little...this mid 90's temp is still HOT!!!

Not too much exciting to share here.  I'm thinking instead of buying gifts this year for the holidays, I'm going to bake!  It's alot cheaper and fun!  I picked up a raincheck on sugar a week or 2 ago, so I got it at the sale price, WITH my coupons, making it much cheaper than normal.  Sugar is one of those things I feel like we use alot of, since I like to bake, so it's nice not to have to pay full price.  Oh, and the flour is all-natural, and with a coupon, it ended up being cheaper than generic (Publix) we'll see how it does with the onset of baking too. Here are the stats:

Total before coupons & store savings: $36.50
Total after coupons & store savings: $6.13
Savings: 83%
