May 252012

Despite a very rainy week, I did a lot of shopping. I stocked up big time on some great deals, and I spent more than usual on groceries. I am mostly excited about the great deal on sunscreen at Target, and I am so excited about this sunscreen deal that I might just go back for more. We are a beach-loving family living in the sunshine state, and when the weather is nice we always spend at least one morning a week at the beach. Now that summer vacation is around the corner, we are going to need the sunscreen even more, and I have no doubt that we will be able to finish off all of this sunscreen by the end of the summer.

Now, if you are wondering how I can feed my family of five for a week on the food that I bought this week…. well that’s where having your own stockpile comes in. Last week I stocked up on milk and chicken, which means that I at least do not have to buy chicken for a few weeks unless there is a deal, and I have a pantry full of cereal, canned veggies, pasta, rice and more… I love it. I actually organized my very full pantry this week, so I’ll have to do a post one of these days.

Friday Update: I went back today to get four more sunscreens, and some Publix freebies.
