Saturday Shopping - Smiths & Sunflower Market

On Saturday I had my brother & his wife over for dinner, and I also took dinner to my neighbor who had a baby. I decided to serve strawberry shortcake for dessert, so I stopped by Sunflower Market to grab a few more Strawberries and use my Cascadian Farms/Muir Glen coupons from the grand opening this week. My trip turned out awesome!

My mom called me asked me to bring a salad to our family dinner yesterday, and I was low on lettuce so I figured I'd pick some up at Smith's. Their heads of romaine were $2.99 EACH! (Insert jawdrop here.) I knew I'd need at least 3 heads, so I ended up buying bagged, precut romaine because it was actually cheaper! That, my friends, is an example of what last minute shopping will do to you! If I'd had the time, I would have run to Sam's and bought a 5-pack for $2.97, as well as a $5 giant tub of blue cheese (as opposed to the teeny tiny $4 one I bought here). Planning pays!
