    Your menu looks great! We had vegtable beef soup (Crystal’s recipe) for dinner tonight, it is a favorite. What are haystacks? Thank you for sharing!

    I so wish it was easier to do this in Canada! I live an hour away from the city. In my town this shopping list is $125. In the city I could probably cut off $15 more. Amazing deal finding, though!

    It would be so helpful if some Canadian mamas could send in their lists too! 🙂

    How do you get the $5 mailer coupon?
