PhotobucketI knew before going into the grocery store that I would not be saving much today. I had a few things working against me, but I wanted the grocery shopping done today, as it is my day to celebrate the big 30 tomorrow.

  • My printer was out of ink
  • My second printer did not work
  • The library was closed (I spend time there every day while waiting for my son to get off school)
  • Most of my items were produce, meat and milk.

I was a bit upset that I could not get the $5 Kraft coupon to print, but at least I got a $50 Staples gift card from TwitterMoms in the mail yesterday …guess what it will be used for…
