Well, my parents are here!! They barely made it to the airport in Moscow. They had a pretty nasty snow storm, and the traffic was so bad that it took them 5 HOURS!!! to get there. They were the last passengers to get on the airplane but they did it! The whole trip took about 20 hours (with a 4-hour layover in NY). So they are tired and sleep-deprived. We have 10-hour time difference with Moscow. We are going to have a quiet weekend with long walks, some shopping and Church on Sunday. The kiddos are extremely happy to see Grandparents, and both of my boys have been jumping on Grandpa all morning :).
I did my usual shopping trip on Wednesday. I went to Walmart and Harmons.
Highlights of these trips:
3 Lawry's Marinade-99c/ea (price-matched with Macey's) plus used $1 coupon=0.01 overage
2 lb cheese loaf-$4.99 (price-matched with Macey's) plus used $1 coupon=$3.99
Chicken $1.59/lb -price-matched with Fresh Market
3 Boost Kid's Essentials-$4.98 (usual price) plus used $3 coupons found at the doc's office- $1.98
Our baby doesn't want to eat at all lately. All he wants are carbs (pasta,bread...)and milk!!! So I got Boost just to make him drink some vitamins. And I'll probably just get some baby vitamins next week (didn't have any in our Walmart). He was such a good eater before! I don't know what happened.
Anyway,I also stopped by Walmart on Saturday and grabbed some grapes (89c/lb,price-matched to Rancho Market)
So total spent in Walmart: $37.52
Total saved: $31.85 (!!!)
Coupons used: 7
And at Harmons I got some cukes (they didn't have any at Walmart), and I also grabbed a loaf of bread.
