Garage Sale Finds, Publix, and More

I'm late posting this because we are just so busy. But I did make it to yard sales on Saturday morning.
One of my first purchases was these bar stools. I only paid $3.25 each for them and my kids love them.

At the same sale, I bought these cute little mirrors, the basket, and a wooden bowl. I also bought some baby card kits to make and a light fixture.(Not pictured)
I only paid $9 for all of these things.

One of the local fire departments was having a sale and I bought this little night stand for $2. It has no drawers but I am going to use fabric to cover the holes. I am going to paint for Jack's room.
I also bought several items of clothing throughout the morning but I didn't take the time to take pictures. All in all, I came out pretty good.

I went to JC Penney to buy a Bed in A Bag that I saw on Thursday but they didn't have the size I needed and it can't be ordered. It has taken me a long time to decide what I want to do with the master bedroom in our house. I finally decided and now I can't get the comforter I want. So now, the search is on.

Anyway, Maci Clare and I headed to Publix yesterday morning. I bought $52.00 worth of groceries for $35. It would have been cheaper but the coupon nazi at the cash register would not double 6 of my coupons. Oh well, I guess every little bit helps. Here is what I bought:
4 loaves of Arnold's Wheat Bread
2 Fantastik Anti bacterial Cleaner
2 Land O Lakes Butter tubs
4 bags of Contessa large salad shrimp
2 boxes of Contessa Coconut Shrimp
2 Pillsbury Pizza Crust
2 Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
6 Pack of Publix Water (This was the .01 item)
2 bags of Salad mix
2 boxes of Easy Mac
4 Cans of Del Monte Green Beans
2 bottles of Huggies baby wash

Then we went to Ingles, where they also double coupons. I bought:
4 1/2 gallons of milk (on sale this week 2/$3)
8 lbs. of ground chuck
2 lbs. of red seedless grapes
2 pouches of Southeastern Mills Cheddar Garlic Biscuit mix
2 bags of Dry beans
2 boxes of Toaster Strudel
6 boxes of Uncles Ben's rice mix (which ended up being free with coupons)
1 Oscar Mayer Bologna
2 Premium Land o Frost Deli meats

Total before coupons was $59 and total after coupons was $32.

So I did pretty good.

Last night we had a meeting at the school about Gabe's fiddle lessons at 6. Zane had football practice at 6:30. Jim had a cub scout leader meeting at 6:30. And I had a class at 7. So our lives are just too busy.

But at the end of the week, Jim and I are headed to Tybee Island, Georgia, which is right beside Savannah. I cannot wait. We are taking a much needed break. So there is a bright spot at the end of this week.

I just want to say that I am so jealous of your up coming weekend! We have only been away alone once in twelve years!
