But I did do some shopping at CVS and Rite Aid today and saved a TON of money. I call it robbing even though I did pay for the items.. haha.
Here's what I purchased today:
The total value of these items is: $56.73
I spent a total of $2.07
No, I am not kidding! I was so excited to get some much needed things such as "girl supplies", TWO Purex 3-in-1 laundry soaps (which by the way, I LOVE using those!) and toothpaste. We already have five or six tubes stored away but I am so excited to put them in our Operation Christmas Child Boxes we will make soon.
Speaking of Operation Christmas Child, this Christmas marks one year since we adopted our first child. Instead of giving each other Christmas presents, we chose to adopt (or sponser) a child from Compassion International.
Everyone, meet Ronald Alexander Rodriguez Solorzano:
He is six years old, and such a precious little boy. I am so glad we decided to sponsor him. He sends us letters that are extremely sweet and draws us pictures. The other day, I sent him a few photos of us and Penny. I hope he likes them. This year, we are getting each other a small gift and then donating what we would've spent to Compassion so they can give Christmas gifts to Ronald and all his friends!
For those of you wondering about the status of Seth's LSAT, he took the test Saturday! He feels pretty good about it, but won't know his score until November. Let's hope and pray it's a great score-I know he is capable of getting an awesome one.
I woke up early Saturday morning to make him cinnamon rolls before he left. I surprised him with a good luck poster, some tennis balls and a card. Take a look:
That plastic baggy contained his LSAT ticket, four number 2 pencils, a pink eraser, kleenex, some tylenol, and some anti-diarrhea meds (ha!). My cute hubby is always prepared.
This morning Seth and I both decided to not attend Church (GASP!) and instead we slept in. It felt SO SO good. We've been pretty lazy this whole day...i mean, i cleaned our room, made a trip to CVS and Rite Aid, and we took Penny to the dog park..but other than that, we've done nothing.
And it felt great.
Oh yeah, speaking of CVS ( once again), I went a couple days ago and got some more laundry detergant for $2!!!! I had a $3 off coupon and a raincheck for Wisk B1G1. It was one sale last week for $4.99 a bottle and so I got two and used that Q and it was 2 dollars for both! Ahh, i love saving money.
MORE FALL DECOR!!!! I cannot get enough...i love fall.
And now for a few photos of our children:
Also, I've realized this post is extremely random...oh well. I enjoyed writing it.
Coming soon: flower headbands i've been making, a homemade magazine rack, and our guestroom makeover in progress.
Goodnight to all and to all a goodnight.
