Way too much to list, but I got $344.46 worth of groceries for $.36!! Our local store had triples - .50 and under and up to $1 doubles for 4 days. I went through my coupon box and pulled out everything I thought might be free or cheap. The store limits 4 like coupons, but I don't normally get multiple coupons anyway. My grocery cart was overflowing, and when all the coupons were deducted, I owed only $.36. It has been a long time since I bought a ton of groceries, and still got change from a $1.00. :)

Wow brainyblonde! Nice going!

DH wanted to treat me to Cold Stone today. (We're going on a diet tomorrow. Yes, we're THOSE kind of people.) When we got there, he ordered a milkshake for himself. It took about ten minutes and four people for them to make the milkshake (I take it something strange was happening). But, apparently, they made too much - they offered me a milkshake, made from the leftovers for his, for free! It was a medium size, which was just right for me since too much makes me sick anyway. And the guy called me a lady, which always tickles me!

A free house dress pattern...think jumper...kind of. You know...the kind you wear a blouse or turtleneck under. My friend made the pattern herself. So I just copied it quickly and plan to add a facing to the front for a button front. I have just the fabric for this baby... I got it free from a friend...it's currently a lightweight denim duvet...
