Wednesday afternoons are just about my favorite afternoon of the week. Why, you ask? Well, to put it pretty simply, I have become an indescribably cheap person. Don’t get me wrong, Noah has provided really well for us and has a great job, but I am just awfully cheap!
What in the world does this have to do with Wednesday afternoons?
Weekly grocery store ads come out! I am a super dork (and once again, super cheap), and I actually look forward to seeing what’s on sale every week. Every Wednesday afternoon, I sit down and make my grocery list for the week. Noah makes endless fun of me for this, but it’s just one of my little quirks! I have no idea why.
We have a Winn-Dixie, a Food World, and most recently, a Publix probably within 5 miles of our house. So, these are the grocery stores I use! It actually becomes fun to make a game of how little I can spend to feed us every week. I actually brag to Noah all the time about how inexpensive I can get each meal! I just figure, why would you pay more for something when you don’t have to? I’d rather spend the money on cute things for our house, or new clothes, than food you’re just going to eat and probably never think about again.
And yes, I’ve heard of the Deal Seeking Mom and all of those other websites that show you how to save a ton of money shopping at Walgreen’s and other drug stores, but I just can’t make myself get into that habit for some reason. You have to WORK to get those deals! But I have heard of people making money instead of spending money when doing their shopping at drug stores. It’s really interesting how people find these deals!
I’m off to clean my super messy house. We will be out of town this weekend, so my cleaning time for the week has to be in the afternoons instead of the weekend this time!
PS – Another blog redesign finished today…I’m on top of my game! 🙂 Check it out at Allison’s site!
