This morning our middle son wasn’t feeling well, and since I am a stay-at-home mom we let him stay home. If I had been working outside of the home, I have the feeling that we would have sent him to school, as he was still able to fight with his younger brother. My original plan had been to take an exercise class, while our youngest son was in school and then do grocery shopping after school, before the two oldest got out of school.
Instead, I now brought our middle son and the baby to Publix in the morning, picked up our youngest son from school, and just as we were picking him up, our oldest son called home from school sick. A good thing shopping is over with, because this probably means that I’ll have at least 1 kid home sick tomorrow. We turned the shopping trip into a math lesson, and I was surprised to see how quickly our son was able to calculate prices after sales and coupons.
I was not as prepared as I would have liked to be for our Publix trip, but I was more prepared than I have been for the past couple of trips. Since, this is our non-ALDI shopping week, I picked up a few produce items at Publix just to tie us over until our next ALDI trip.
Our middle son was thrilled to discover that we were going to get hot dogs, since it has been more than a year since we last bought hot dogs. He used to be more or less addicted, so we have been trying to wean him off a bit.
My favorite deal was the deal on Green Giant boxed veggies, and we got as many as our tiny freezer could hold. I love these frozen veggies, because they are great for keeping veggies on the table whenever we are in between ALDI trips. For our family of six, we have at least two different veggies for dinner every night, so I surely wish we had more room in the freezer.
