Smith's Shopping Trip

The Fort Union Smith's near me had a grand re-opening this morning. It's not usually the Smith's I visit on Wednesdays, but I figured I'd pop down there and check it out, since they had free breakfast fixings for the first 300 customers, and I needed to pick up a few things anyway.

The Quaker sale was fantastic, and the breakfast freebies were a great snatch as well. I love taking oatmeal to eat for breakfast on the days I work, and I've been out (shocking, I know) for a few weeks. But I just couldn't bring myself to pay full price because I knew they'd go on sale! I'm so glad I waited.

I made some homemade carrot babyfood last week to give to the Bambina. The night I tried to feed it to her, she had an absolute meltdown and hated it! She was screaming and arching her back and throwing a tantrum, which is so unlike her. I ended up sending Chris to the grocery store right that second while I calmed the girl down and waited for him to come back with some storebought. I don't know what her deal was, but we're going to stick with Gerber for a bit. So I had to pay for the real deal today, but at least I had a $0.75/6 coupon, lol.

The Smith's store itself was amazing, amazing, amazing. I hope they remodel all of the Smith's stores like that! If you're nearby, stop and check it out.


Total spent for April: $52.93
Total saved for April: $125.30 (70%)
