Okay, I am not good at keeping the totals, that is an area I need to work on. I do know this much, I have spent the minimal amount because that is all I have. I am doing a good job of stockpiling. I just told my husband that I wish I could stockpile laundry detergent, but that it is so expensive. Low and behold I find that Fab is on sale at Ralphs for 3.99 there was a coupon a while ago for $1.00/1 and I had two, to make things even better The 3/16 Sunday paper has them coming out for $1.00 again. Now I will stockpile Fab. I am working hard at this because I will not be working at all this summer and plan to live as entirely as possible off my pantry. I want to overload on classes and get done.

I am at about $53 right now. I am going on a BIG trip next week (it's been almost a month since I have been! ) and we are running out of staples--tortillas, salsa, mayo, etc.

I sent dh to Sam's for diapers, laundry soap, cheese slices and honey. The diapers and laundry soap are for next month, but I figured since he was going...........Spent $50.45, bringing our March total clear up to $165.77 already. Almost $35 of that is for April, so we'll see what happens.

(3) Great Starts, get paid .35 each after Rebate

(2) 15oz boxes of Fruit Loops (tub toys inside), 1.27 each
(5) Aquafresh toothpaste .23 each after coupon
(3) pounds of sunflower seeds for dh, .88 each
(3) pkg of taco seasoning for Chuck, .33 each
(6) 6 packs Coke bottles $1.57 each
(6) 6oz yogurts, $2 for all 6
