I took the extra time to really do my research this week. More than normal. I still have I Krogers and Rite Aid trip to make and might go get an extra thing of diapers at Walgreens, but today's CVS (particularly) and Target. (The breakdown is at the end for those of you who care! But I ended up with $119.93 worth of stuff after tax but only paid $39.72! So I saved 67%...Very happy!!!
Food wise, I made smart choices. As much as I really wanted some junk today, I held strong. I also won battles on the patience front. Chloe was a bit fussy ALL DAY LONG! Kept having meltdowns over things that didn't make sense. More emotion than normal. I'm thinking she doesn't feel great and that's what happened. And even through that, I managed to stay fairly calm and collected today.
So today, all in all, was a success...On the books for tomorrow - a trip to Kroger and Rite Aid, but not until AFTER my sister picks up Amelia (tomorrow is Day One of my the new "babysitting" gig!). Then we're either having Coconut Chicken and Parsnip Chips or else Chicken Tikka Masala and Aloo Gobi...Just depends how long the grocery run takes...
