Weekly Groceries

I'm soooooo BEHIND!!!!!!

These are the coupon inserts that need to be cut and filed....
AND I'm pretty sure it's not going to get done!!!

I think I'm going to clip the ones I'm most likely to use
and keep the rest in the inserts.
There comes a point when I don't think I can get caught up...
Anyway... Back to the Groceries...

Since I'm this far behind and really have no clue what's going on in the sale department...
I just hit Aldi this week for groceries and called it good!!!
I did find some great deals on produce and milk though!!
Chocolate Milk 1/2 gallons for .69 cents, 3 lb. bag of Apples for $1.09, and 2 lbs of grapes for only $1.49!! So even without coupons I only spent $51.xx

Did I mention I didn't even take a grocery list with me...
Wweehhh talk about out of character!!!!
Remember when life takes over it's okay to do things
a little (or a lot) different!!!
Hopefully next week I'll be back on track although
It's iffy!!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

WW - Photo Shoot!

I've been wanting to do this for a year now... Yea it's time!!!
Pretty pathetic that the last picture in my frame of my
kids is 3 years old...
Anyway Here's my first shoot of Halee my 8 yr old.

These are straight out of the camera.
When I get some time, I'd love to play with some effects
before I pick the one for my wall!!!

I love this last one but there is a shadow
from a stick or something.
It makes it look like a birth mark across her forehead???

She already wants to have another photo shoot!!!
I think she liked it!! (So did I!!!)

In His Word Wednesday

Ephesians Chapter 4 Verse 29

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,
but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs,
that it may benefit those who listen.

Wow that is something I need to work on. I try hard not to ever
say bad things (although I fail), but does everything I say build others up or
benefit others. Unfortunately this is a big NO...
Imagine how different this world would be if everything
we said was to build others up. I can start with my hubby and kids!!!
What has God been teaching you lately.
Do you have a prayer request?
Do you have a Bible verse that has stuck out to you?
Even just words of encouragement. I would love to hear from you!
Just post on your blog, then come back here and sign the linky below.(You are welcome to use my banner if you'd like)
You can even just leave your words or prayer request here as a comment. We'd love to know how to pray for you. If you don't want to elaborate just let us know you have an unspoken prayer request. We can still pray for you because God already knows!!

Have a great Wednesday!

Menards 10-18

Menards has 2 freebies this week.
If you didn't see last week's ad you can see it here.
Last week there was 5 freebies and the ad is still good through

Both ads are good through 10/25

Hex L Key Set -- FREE after $2.50 Rebate -- limit 4

Smart Caulk Tool -- FREE after $5. Rebate -- limit 3

Alkaline batteries -- .99 cents after $1. Rebate -- limit 8

Jumbo Bag Candy -- $2.49 after $1.50 Rebate -- limit 4

Picture Frames -- .79 cents after $3.00 Rebate -- limit 12

Small Tarp -- .75 cents after $1.00 Rebate -- limit 3
When you purchase the freebies, you must purchase an additional $10. of non-rebated items per transaction to qualify for the rebate. You can get as many freebies as you want per transaction with only one $10. additional purchase. ((**You can get a $10. Gift card if you don't need anything right now!**)) Your rebate will come in the form of a Merchandise Check. Which means you must spend it at Menards, (I just use mine for more freebies!)
It's been reported that you do not have to spend the $10. and you will still get your rebate. Since the ad says you're supposed to I still think we should as to not take advantage of the program. You can use your own judgement! Thanks for letting us know!
You do not need to purchase any additional $$ if you are only getting the rebated items that are not free.
To learn all about Menards and how to send in
their rebates go here!

Just leave a comment if you have a question
or see another good deal...


We're HOME!!!
That's about all I can say as I peek my head around a pile of laundry practically to the ceiling and a camper full of MORE!!!

I hope to share a few deals with you tomorrow!
Thanks again to all of you who guest posted for me and every one of your emails sharing deals with me!

See you soon!!!
