Oh dear. I’ve gone way over budget. For good reason. I hope!
I had my list all planned out with my coupon matches for this week’s Mix and Match Sale at Kroger! As I was browsing through the organic/gluten free section of the store, I noticed a few items on closeout. Said items were GFCFSF. Since there were only a few left, I knew that I had to snag them at their closeout prices! So I did. And ended up going over budget. It happens!
Just the other day Hubs mentioned that he was all out of “snacks”. Translation: There were no more granola bars. He takes 1 granola bar for lunch every day. It was moments later that Mommysnacks.net’s Kroger deals post popped up on my Google Reader. “Honey, you’re in luck this week! Big sale on granola bars and I’ve got lots of coupons!”
And stockpile I did!
Hubs also likes to eat oatmeal for breakfast. I think I got enough to last until spring arrives!
