I went grocery shopping feeling quite unprepared today, and that always means a big out-of-pocket total. We’ve had to spend way too much time at home for the past two weeks, because first our youngest son got a toe infection (so bad that it needed an ER visit and strong antibiotics), and then he got sick after a check up with his pediatrician. A few days later our daughter got it, and then it was my turn. It has been a long time, since we’ve been sick, but it was a good reminder to get everyone started on their asthma medication before school starts. Our youngest son, who is starting kindergarten is the one of the kids, who has the worst asthma, and I surely fear all of the sickness that comes with the start of school.
After we had put all of our groceries away, I discovered that I had taken the photo without a memory card, so please excuse the lack of photo today. All we have is a photo of the Scotties tissues. If we had had coupons, I would have stocked up more, because some of the boxes will go toward the kids’ school supply lists. Still at $0.63 a box, it is a great price for Scotties tissue.
