It's Friday!!

Where did Thursday go? Since my husband was off work, yesterday was a family day. I really didn't get much accomplished. To comfirm this fact, I missed LOST!!!! Thank goodness for DVR's.

We did make it to Wal-Mart and finish up the Easter shopping. I decided to scale it back a bit this year, since I'm staying home. But, on the other hand I did splurge a bit on small toys for the eggs instead of cheap candy for stuffers. I figured in the long run it was better!! My kids are having two eggs hunts at the house Sunday and who needs that much candy? With a set of grandparents at each hunt, I'm sure they will have some candy to get them by. And I did get a little....remember my CVS trips.

While at Wal-Mart I did take advantage of some "free" coupons. I got some Clorex "green" cleaner and cat treats free. Plus I used 3 of these Post coupons for their new chocolate cluster cereal, and got them for $.24 each. My husband asked it was good since I got 3 boxes. Beats me, it was $.24 each, so yes I guess it is good and you WILL enjoy it! I only got 3, beacause I had printer issues after 3 coupons and gave up.
Today, since hubby is back at work, I need to get moving. I think I'll hit a thrift store or 2. I'll be looking for eBay mostly, but the kids really need some spring clothes too. I usually find them at least one piece that's new or like new while shopping. The best part is I'm not really looking for them and somehow they always have a TON of clothes. Last time my son got some new Gap tennis shoes and my daughter got a "no wash wear" red Old Navy dress. They are always so good when I thrift shop. I think they might like it as much as me........okay not as much.
