I hope everyone has had a great week. Our week has mostly been nice -winter is taking a break and we like it. We have had cloudy skies and rain with snow but it's not too bad. They are saying that it will make a comeback this next week, so we are getting a lot of things that we need done out side right now.
I made sure to get a raincheck from Meijer's for Campbell's chicken noodle soup yesterday that was on sale for .69 a can. That's a deal and apparently, it was an unadvertised deal. The cashier told me I was out of luck and should that I should have came earlier in the week, so I decided to go to the service desk. They were so nice and printed a raincheck that's good for 12 cans! I asked if I could see the list of the unadvertised deals, he laughed, and then said..uhh no.
I had to think why I was there ..oh yeah, one of the grandkids had an upset stomach and I was getting them Vernors (like an ginger ale but much better). When you stomach is sick around here you get a bottle of Vernors, chicken noodle soup, and crackers. They actually love that part of being sick. Grandchild is feeling much better and I know it was because of Grandma and pop's medicine.
Oh yes, the Vernors was an unadvertised deal too! All of that will be on next week's grocery total.
Called on a doctor's bill that was sent to us for $75. Apparently, they forgot to charge the insurance. Funny, they explained it a total different way though.
Cleaned and organized the catchall closet. Some of the clothes I found were either donated or sent to thred up and some of the food I organized, we made sure to use right away. You can see that post here.
We had a lower spend grocery bill this week. You guys make me feel so much better about spending more than I want to. My great deal this past week was stew beef. The price of beef is getting ridiculous.
I made ahead some waffles for breakfast. It's been so easy to just pop them in the microwave in the mornings.
Goals for this week:
You know how you think, I'm just going to roll and get a lot of things done. It was just a fleeting thought for me when I came down with the, I don't know what is sickness, this past week. I was cold then I was hot and I then slept 16 hours. At one time my husband put 4 blankets on me to get me warm. I bet I know what it was, it was the shock of cleaning and organizing that catchall closet ha ha!
I'm back to my old self now and so this week I'm going to finish cleaning out the spice cupboard (since I'm up at an ungodly hour, I started this morning) and then move on to organizing the closet in the guest bedroom.
