The kids had swim class every day this week, so there were not much time for shopping. We did get some basic grocery and back-to-school shopping done, but that was about it. Thanks to our favorite online store, we also got a box of clothing in the door with the mail. We went over budget once again, thanks to some poorly planned grocery trips. I am going to be the first to admit it, there just isn’t enough time in the day to spend a whole lot of time on grocery planning, when I have four kids home all day. We need to be out and about, swimming, playing and having fun during these last weeks of summer vacation.

The baby is now wearing size 9 – 12 months clothing, which means that she can finally start wearing some of the beautiful free dresses that I have been getting for her over the past year. Can you tell how excited I am?

My older boys are all set for back-to-school, thanks to some frugal shopping throughout the year. I did pick up some clothing for my youngest son, who will be starting VPK.
