CHB calls me yesterday right after I got to work. She has fantastic news. Wait for it............
The Albertson's (grocery store to the rest of you) in town (one of 2) is going out of business, she says. Everything is 75% off! Wha??? OMG I am there.
Shit shit shit. I am still at work. How the hell am I going to pull this off? Oh yeay! Today is my half day! I did the happy dance and jumped up and down, inside my head of course. Helloooooooooo I AM a professional.
I passed the info along to Moxie as well. So, as soon as I got off work, I hit the door running. I grabbed Doodle from school, hit the potty, and raced to the store.
It was a zoo. Thankfully, with Doodle there, I was able to shop while she looked for a cart.
Most of the aisles were 75-85% empty by the time I got there and most of the perishables and frozen foods were gone. So, I got the cereal I wanted, and headed over to the household goods section.
Motherload! This was better than sitting at home, tediously clipping, filing, organizing and storing coupons! I quickly filled up my cart with all the toothpaste, shampoo, make-up, household cleaner, body soap, kitchen soap, laundry detergent and hairspray that I thought I could use in the next 12 months.
I was very happy with my purchases, and I found a place to put it all away! I was super worried I would have to roll around with the extras in the back of my car for 6-9 months.........
I bought some things I normally wouldn't. So far, my favorites are:
NUT-trition (lol) and Skinny Water. Today's afternoon snack!
