Happy Ad Wednesday!

Finally got my act together. Not in the morning, mind you, because morning is for chumps. Instead my act and I got together after dinner like civilized people. After dinner is when all important things happen.

This week citrus is still all around, and grapes make an appearance. They’ll be cheaper later in the year, but for now this is the lowest I’ve seen in a while. Carrots and bell peppers will be the excuse the kids use to shovel ranch dressing to their mouths for the next several days.  Yogurt is also cheap, as are chicken legs, in case you needed some protein after all that Valentine candy.

Pizza & a Movie Night

I realize I haven’t posted the sales. For that I apologize. But look at this great pizza! 


The kids got a cheese one that wasn’t nearly as pretty. It wasn’t as pretty because there was no meat on it. Homemade sausage makes everything prettier. 

I’ll have the ad post up tomorrow. In the meantime I hope your Friday night is frugal & fun! 

Happy Ad Wednesday!

I realize the late thing is becoming a chronic problem.  I’d join a blogger support group, but I did and so far it seems to be a lot of happy hours and parties. Which is awesome, but not steering me toward a robust blogging schedule.

There are also still Christmas lights in my yard, so it’s not like I’m only neglecting you Cheepsters, it’s a wide and sweeping swath of neglect.

Here I am now, though, pulling my big girl panties on and getting you informed. One thing to note, produce is not on sale much this week.  Blame the sun, making it winter in places besides here.  

Read on, and hit the sales!
