shopping saturday

I was able to go get my grocery shopping done today without the "help" of the kids because James stayed home with them. He is a willing babysitter and always says, "Go. You need some time to yourself." I do appreciate the thought but I miss him when I'm out getting things done. Oh, well! I am so pleased with all the cool deals I got today! Would you like to see? Ok! I'll show you!

I did splurge while I was out and bought two pairs of flip-flops from Payless. They were offering their BOGO 1/2 off sale so I think I did pretty well at $11.64 for two pairs, a savings of $5!

I do, however, believe that I was in need of some new flip-flops though! Do you see my old ones below?
Well, thanks for looking at all my buys with me! I am so happy with what I bought and I still have some leftover from my weekly budget!!! Yippee!!

I always feel like a "hero" when I can save big with coupons/sales. Isn't that a great feeling?
