katiecoupon13: Congrats on your no spend and no drive day.

DamianMom: I want you stocking up, especially when the sales are good. That will save you money in the future. Nice price on on the ground beef. I say, if your daughter wants a peach, she gets a peach. I would never deny a kid wanting to eat healthy.

claire7771: Congrats on your no spend and no drive day. Good job taking advantage of a closeout sale. Nice deal on the drill, at that price, I would have purchased it myself.

emmakate7: Congrats on your no spend day. Enjoy your beach trip.

CocoaDiva43: Congrats on your no spend days and no drive days. Hope you enjoyed your pie.

I've grown to love global (non-English language) music, fought to regain balance and fought mediocrity to retain my value. I have also reached my weight loss goal with a 170 pound loss.
Welcome back! Great to see you again. Congrats on your weight loss. 170# is a lot of weight to lose, you have to feel much better now. Congrats on kicking the fast food, that stuff is expensive and most of it is not good for you. WTG! Awesome job paying off 3 of your 5 debts in the last six months. All of us are proud of your accomplishments. No matter what you thought, you do have value as a person.

I went to the store today, and stocked up on more ground beef. It's on sale for $1.99 lb. So I bought about 12-13 lbs., and will divide and freeze it. I also got eggs, milk, more grapes, strawberries, a peach, tomatoes, a bag of potatoes, and pickles. The grapes we bought last time were eaten very quickly. So I bought more as they were on sale again, and will prep them as well. The one peach was for my daughter who asked for it. Even though it wasn't on sale I'd rather spoil my kids with healthy treats. I saw the candy aisle on the way to check out, and had to look. LOL But I resisted the temptation, and didn't buy any. The strawberries were a much better treat anyways. I can't wait for all the Summer goodies like berries and peaches to be in season! I hope to plant some strawberries as well! I plan to buy a bunch when they are cheaper, make jam, smoothies, and freeze a ton of them too. Yum!
Just so you know, anytime you plant or transplant strawberries, you are suppose to pick the blooms off the first year so that the plant sends out more runners for future production. Picking off the blooms means that you will not have strawberries from them this year, but next year they should produce for you

Went to get some pasta on sale, but had to get a rain check. But I found some ground beef at this store marked down to $1.99 lb. So I got about 8 lbs., and used 5 lbs. of it for taco meat. I also prepped the grapes, and later today will divide and freeze the rest of the meat. This time though I couldn't resist getting a treat. LOL They had M&M's for .25 cents each when you buy 2. So my daughter and I got a bag. I am sure I have worked off that and more though! LOL
