Dear Santa...

Does anyone else's husband have a hard time coming up with birthday and/or Christmas gift ideas? I'm throwing hubby a bone with this one today.

Behold. The item currently at #1 on my wishlist:

I saw this the other day when we were at Home Depot. Sometimes it feels like we live there. But on this particular occasion, we were back by the wood blinds when I stumbled upon it. Isn't it a beaut? It's basically an upright freezer chest with 8.8 cubic feet of glorious frozen space inside.

Why, oh why is a freezer on my wishlist, you ask? Oh, the possibilities! I got THIS recipe book for Christmas last year and I love it. However, I never have enough room in my freezer to really use it regularly. I love the idea of once-a-month cooking and freezing meals. I also love being able to buy frozen foods in bulk when I find a good sale. Like you don't already know that.

In short, I think this freezer could actually save our family money. And the best part? Look how much it costs to run per year...

(This is Chris's biggest beef with buying a 2nd freezer. He let Utah Power haul away the old freezer we inherited with our house because it was a power hog.)

Thirty-nine dollars per year!?! I think I'm in love.

Walgreens Deals

I went to Walgreens yesterday to use the $5/25 coupon, and was hoping to find the OFF! Clip-on mosquito protection that's on sale this week (since pregnant people aren't supposed to put DEET on their skin). They were all out, but I ended up finding an OFF! Powerpad lantern on clearance (and I had a coupon for it). It will be perfect for the camping trip this weekend!

All You Grocery Challenge Progress

The All You Grocery Challenge has begun! How is everyone doing? I thought I'd give you an update on my spending so far. Remember I have $50 per week to spend since I have two (and a half) members in my household.

On Monday I went to Smith's to pick up a few items. (Forgot to take a picture!)

$3.29 Jif Peanut Butter
$1.00 Bounty Paper Towel
$1.29 Peaches
$1.98 Apples
$3.50 Morningstar Patties
$1.67 Hot Pockets
$3.00 Colby Jack sliced cheese
-$1 Bounty MFQ
= $14.73 + $0.51 tax
(Saved $3.25)

(I know the Bounty paper towels don't technically count towards the challenge, but since they ended up free after the coupon, I'll leave them in there.)

Yesterday I went by the Albies by my work on my way home. I wanted to pick up some Dial as well as some bagels, because we were running out. The dial was out of stock, so I grabbed a bag of bagels and headed to the self checkout.

When I got to self checkout, they rang up incorrectly so I called an associate over an
d after double-checking, he agreed they were ringing up incorrectly when they should be on sale. I said "so that means I get them for free, right?" He said "no, I'll just fix the price." I know Albies, Smith's and Walmart all have a scan-rite policy so I said "oh, well last time I was here they gave me the item free when it rang up incorrectly." He said, "oh, really? I'll go check." Sure enough, they had to give them to me free. It never hurts to ask!

$0.00 Sarah Lee Bagels (reg. $3.69)
= $0.00
(Saved $3.69)

I'm sort of in love with the Albies by my work, because their stuff always rings up wrong! I never go looking for mistakes, I just happen to love free food. :)

Total spent for the week = $15.24.
Total saved for the week = $6.94.
