What's been going on with us at casa de la small town city girl?
* Hubby broke his collar bone.
* DS spent five days with Granny and Poohpah
* I finished painting my kitchen
* I shampooed my carpets
* I went on a thrift store shopping spree with a good friend.
* I've been feeling super funky and don't know why.
Hopefully this will pass soon. I really hate all the negative energy, it really stinks. Keep happy thoughts for me. :)

I ended up with 10 transactions to get all of the stuff in the picture below and a few things not pictured (one DiGiorno flat bread sandwich, a 1/2 gallon of chocolate milk and one more box of Planter's Big Nut bars)
Here's a list of all that's pictured & what's not:
13 boxes Ritz crackers
8 boxes Planters Big Nut bars
2 Easy Mac Individual Mac&Cheese
4 Land o Lakes Butter with Canola Oil
2 boxes Captain Crunch Cereal
2 DiGiorno Flatbread melt sandwiches
2 Nabisco Premium Saltine Crackers (8 sleeves per box)
2 boxes Velveeta Shells & Cheese
2 boxes Tazo Awake Tea
3 General Foods International Chai Latte
1 General Foods International French Vanilla Latte
2 Seattle Times Sunday Papers
1 DiGiorno Flatbread melt sandwich
1 Half Gallon Dairygold Chocolate Milk
1 box Planters Big Nut Bars
My total out of pocket for all of this was $13.03. As it was, ALL of the crackers, nut bars, flatbread sandwiches and mac & cheese were FREE. I ended up paying some for the milk, cereal, butter, tazo teas, general foods coffees, and of course my Sunday Papers.
I plan to give some of the crackers to my MIL and a good family friend as well as donate what we won't use. My husband, son and myself LOVE the nut bars and I estimate those will last us about 3 weeks...really! And the rest just goes into the stockpile. I may use the teas and coffees as gifts because many of our family and friends love it. It's all just nice to have around.
Other than this shopping adventure, I have not spent any money on groceries this week. We've been eating out of the stockpile.
My DH was teasing me that I'm loosing my touch because rarely do I actually spend this much at the store anymore, but with the Ritz crackers retailing at $4.19/box and my having gotten 13 boxes....I'd say he's just razzing me. ;)
If you go to crocs.com and place an order of two or more pairs, you will receive 1/2 off each pair. Making this even sweeter is the fact that women's and girl's mary jane styles are on sale! Women's are $14.99 and girl's are $9.99. Buy two and you will be paying $7.49 for women's and 4.99 for girl's. PLUS use this code: MALINDI09 and you will get FREE shipping!
I just bought 3 pairs for only $22.47! Considering retail on these shoes is $39.95 each pair, I'll say I got a heck of a deal!There aren't many sizes left, but you might just get lucky! Let me know if you get a good deal.
