The poor grocery cart

Hello everyone and thank you for standing by and waiting for me to be inspired.

I made a trip to Walgreen's and Rite Aid today
6 bottles of Tide detergent
2 bottles of Downy
1 box of Downy sheets
3 Dawn dish soap
and various other little things.

My grocery cart broke!! I was walking across a parking lot to Rite Aid and the wheel fell off!!! Right there on a parking lot!!! Clean fell right off. And it was a big wheel, do You have any idea how hard it is to push a cart with that much detergent in it? It wasn't easy.

Greg has his work cut out for him. Luck its an easy fix - Just a new pin to hold the wheel on.

Blessings from the clean laundry home, Laura

September 1 - time to start a new challenge

I seem to do better if I have a challenge to motivate myself. Here is one to take us to the end of the year.
500 pound donation challenge

I recently read about a fellow WUCkie (We love coupons forum member and I have a link over to the right in the links section) who’s Pastor challenged his whole church to donate the total family’s weight in food for the local food pantry. I already donate to my church’s food pantry but I admit I have been slipping lately. So this has motivated me to do the same so here I am to proclaim Greg & I will donate 500 pounds of food and health & beauty products to our church pantry BY CHRISTMAS. And of course I will do it as cheaply as I can.

Here is the running list but I don’t have weights yet. I need to buy a scale for that

12.6oz Pantene conditioner
2 – 42 count Pull Up wipes
2 – 2.6 oz Degree Deodorant
7 Reach toothbrushes
5 Reach floss
8 trial size various health & beauty items
1 – 8ct Walgreen’s tampons

Stay tuned to see how well we can do on this challenge.

Thanks for reading and blessings, Laura
