100's Day!

The triplets celebrated their 100th day of school last Friday. They had to make a shirt with 100 things on it. It took me 3 days to get them done. The kids helped though and I think they turned out pretty cute. I especially liked Connor's shirt. Totally my genius idea. I drew roads on his shirt, glued on about 9 toy cars, then glued on 91 sticker cars, and wrote "Speed Limit 100" on the front. They were very excited to wear them.

All my hard work went out the window when I walked in on Connor and Aspen ripping off their cars and hearts not 30 minutes after school was over! Oh well. At least I got pictures first!


Owen watched his first Baby Einstein video. (Well some of it.) He was so adorable sitting in his Bumbo watching tv. How bad of a mom am I that Owen is watching tv already? The girls liked watching it too.

Proof That Coupons Work

This is what I bought at Smith's a couple of weeks ago. There is so much! My original total for all of this goodness was about $220. After my Fresh Values Savings it dropped to $130. After my coupons I paid.........$66.27!!! How awesome is that? Most of this stuff I paid less than $1 for!

I made a return trip to Smith's the following week and picked up 5 tubes of Colgate toothpaste, 5 packages of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter sticks, 2 packages Goldfish crackers, 1 package Tyson chicken tenders, and 2 cartons Dreyer's ice cream. The original total on this was $45, after Fresh Values it was 28, and after coupons it came to.......$11.28!

This is such a great way to save money! I've never been so excited to grocery shop!
