Simplicity – Small & Cheap

Living simply & cheaply…wherever you are!

Meijer Trip

As I write this, I am sitting in the van because Lil’ Bit fell asleep and I don’t want to wake her.

I did pretty well at Meijers this week and was even close to budget–after buying some of my sale + coupon extras!

Not quite as impressive as my receipt would indicate…I impulse-bought a sweater for DD for church and it was on sale from $12.99 to $4.99. And I was prepared to pay full price…in fact I was contemplating returning it but for $5, I’ll keep it!
