I have decided to stop blogging.  I have really enjoyed it and wish that I had the time to continue with this blog, but right now in my life, I know that the right choice is to stop.  I have been blessed with the opportunity right now to be home with my son, and I want to savor every moment of it.

My husband just reminded me the other day that someday, before we know it, my son won't want to spend time with us anymore and it hit me that I have to be thinking about what is most important to me in life.  My job right now is to train and teach my child and I haven't been making that a priority since I started blogging.  Every day, I have felt guilty telling my child "no, I can't do that right now, I'm busy on the computer".  After making the decision to stop blogging earlier today, I have already felt a burden lifted off of my shoulders and have so much more peace.  I have dreams and goals in my life that recently have had to be put on the back-burner, and stopping blogging will give me the time to begin pursuing some of them.

Thank you all for the support and encouragement that you have given me!  I wish the best for you all!

My Kroger Shopping Trip

(You can click on the picture to see it better)
This is what I purchased at Kroger last night (Plus, three things from Target).  Pretty much all these prices are still available through next week- at least.  You can check out my Kroger Match-ups here to see almost all of the links to the actual coupons that I used.  In all, I spent a total of $18.47 (not including the couple dollars that I paid in tax) for everthing that I purchased at Kroger.  According to my receipt I saved:  $180.75.  Honestly, it doesn't hardly seem possible that everthing I got from Kroger would have been $199.22 without sales and coupons- but Kroger's regular prices are pretty high on some things.  For instance my receipt says that each can of the campbell's cream of chicken soups would have been $1.39.  I also spent $5.50 on a couple things at Target- (You can find that breakdown at the very bottom).   
Here's what I got at Kroger:
  • 30 bottles of Honest Organic Tea/ Honest Organic Ade.  I used (30) .50/1 manufacturer coupons = .25 overage for each after doubles.  I am not buying my husband soda for work anymore so these will be great for him to take to drink instead.
