a fabulous shopping week

1st - no baby. :(

2nd - look how many pairs of shoes i bought emery today.

yes, that's 7 pairs. and what would possess me to do such a thing? all 7 pairs (sizes 6-8 - her current and next 2 sizes) were $1 each. $1!!!! have i mentioned i live less than 1 block from DI?? have i mentioned they have BRAND NEW stuff sometimes (from Wal-Mart usually)? love it.

another reason i love Cedar City - the lack of couponing frenzy. i've had a struggle with the food prices coming from the land of cheap food (Provo) and not getting newspaper coupons anymore, but yesterday morning made up for it. i got 18 boxes of pasta (mostly whole wheat even) for $0.20 each and 18 boxes of quaker granola bars for $0.50 each. best part - i was the only one in the store at 8:30am. everything i wanted was there. there were no lines. no one else even seemed to want my cheap pasta and granola bars. thank goodness for internet coupons and ignorance. :) not that i don't want to share the beautiful deals... but it was pretty nice to seem to be the only one in the know.

I love the fur lined shoes- and the coupons.

Goodwill out here always has brand new Target stuff. And I've seen a few Old Navy things also.

Great job couponing and getting deals. That is one thing I LOVE about colorado I can always get my couponing deals and they have like 3 racks all the time of all clearance at target. It never fails to find a good deal here!

Hey! Just checking in to see if there are any new Wilkies on the planet....As for your post, I'm not sure why, but isn't it so satisfying to find great deals on stuff? And then every time Emery wears a pair of those cute shoes, you'll feel good and proud all over again. Fun.

Woohoo! Nothing like a good deal.

Nice work Britt! I'm proud of you. $1 baby clothes are amazing. And $0.20 pasta, can't beat that! Is your baby here yet?!?

I bet you love getting on your blog and seeing "your baby is 1 day old". You probably don't need any reminders that d-day passed. I got so frustrated I stopped answering my phone altogether
