Steph's NEW Addiction....

Yes... this is My grocery cart from Walmart. We have had no food in the house for a month or so. So this was the BIG shopping day of the month. My new addiction is PRICE MATCHING! This cart of food should have been over $380 easily. But... being the smart woman I am, hahahah, I walked out of there with this being $250! I LOVE price matching and coupons! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I will find any deal out there, there is possible. And if there isn't a deal on it, i will make one up to get that deal hahaha. Never hurts to ask, right? The worst that could happen is they tell you no! So why not? In this grocery basket is 7 12-pack of pop, 4 gallons of ice cream, 5 frozen pizzas, candy candy candy candy, fruit, baby food- I mean the lists goes on and on. Most of the stuff VERY expensive and adds up real fast! But $250 for all this, is a STEAL!!! I price match EVERYTHING!!! It takes about 3-4 hours to do, but worth every minute. I will post how I do this below- my shopping list in a spread sheet, YES, I said a SPREAD SHEET! If you know me, i have to have everything organized, this meaning, spread sheets for everything. I guess some would call it OCD??? I know this spread sheet won't make sense to a lot of you, but I color coordinate things (that's how I actually graduated college- color coordinating my lecture notes) but take a look...

You make me laugh! I go off and on with the coupons! It's great I just don't always want to take the time! Thanks for the compliment by the way. Compliments are always welcome when your pregnant. It's hard to see past the pounds! :)
