I am almost ashamed to put this picture up! Hubby and I went to Publix tonight and as we were walking with our empty grocery cart, he looked at me and said, “Are you sure you are Liza from Addicted to Saving?” Our savings were paltry, I didn’t stock up on anything (except the, ahem, chocolate) and we barely took advantage of any of the sales!
This was a really crazy week for us. In fact, I apologize because some of my regular posts went by the wayside. We have had a really up and down week with adoption stuff and next week I will post about everything to fill you all in. Let’s just say that this week included many nights of way too little sleep, lots of nervous stomachs and lots of praying. But I’ll fill you in soon – promise.
How did you do this week shopping? I hope you were able to spend less and save more than I did! Please leave a comment letting everyone know how you did!
