Hi gals I managed not to go grocery shopping yesterday, I did go to the thrift store, got a shirt for DS1 (green for St Patrick's Day) a dress for date night, and a board game for kiddos w all the pieces for $9. So I was pretty happy with that. Today I spent $36 @ Aldi, it is for weekend grocery but I don't have time to go tomorrow, and I got a corned beef and cabbage for tmrw night which will save us $$ bc DH won't get takeout. But w the extra I spent on the protein deal I'm at 47/100 til next Friday so I really have to make sure I stay out of the store through the weekend!!

CocoaDiva43: Good job eating organic. Hope you and your hubby enjoy his week off next week. Congrats on your no spend day and no drive day. Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day picnic. Good luck finding a deal on patio furniture this time of year.

DamianMom: Sorry that you had to get a rain check on pasta. $1.99 is a great price on ground beef. Have to treat yourself from time to time.

katiecoupon13: Glad that you were able to drive your mom and her epileptic dog to the vet. Hope the dog is better now. Congrats on your no spend day and no drive day.

amos311: Congrats on your three (3) no spend days. You're well on your way to hitting your goal of thirteen.

claire7771: You did well for $9 at the thrift store. Good job getting ahead of your hubby and buying groceries so that he won't buy take out.

mothernature: Hey! I forgot to ask the other day, did you complete your move to Dallas?

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

Strangely, the subject of candy came up the other day; size versus prices then and now. Which then led to me trying to remember the M&M colors of the 1960's and 1970's. I remembered yellow, brown, tan, green and that while I was a teenager, red disappeared in that red dye scare. There should be six (6) colors, so I'm missing a color, my parents were thinking purple, but I just don't remember that color, but they may be correct. Maybe I should look into this to see if I can find anything on it.

I honestly don't recall the colors they had. They didn't last long enough to really notice. LOL
