No pictures since I’m not that ambitious yet, but I am very excited because I’m almost to the second trimester and starting to feel a wee bit normal again–at least at certain times of the day. These bursts of energy resulted in my being able to snag some great deals:
1) A delicious birthday dinner on the cheap–Someone mentioned on my blog last week that Lone Star Steakhouse gives you a $15 birthday certificate. So, you know me, I went and signed up for it and my wonderful hubby happily took us there for my birthday.
We don’t go to sit-down restaurants very often so this was a real treat. The service was excellent, the food was yummy and plentiful, and the entire meal for the four of us only cost $13 plus the tip! Plus, we brought home enough leftovers for lunch the next day, too.
2) A double stroller–With baby #3 on the way, we’ve been in the market for a double stroller recently and this week we were able to find one off of Craigslist that was in great shape and priced much less than we’d ever pay new. Yay!
3) Groceries–I actually went grocery shopping this week. Yes, fall out of your chair! I could hardly believe I was able to myself, but I did and it wasn’t all that bad. Plus, we were able to get enough groceries to last us this week for $30! And that was not scrimping by any means.
Of course, we have spent quite a bit more than that every week for the past five weeks, so we are pretty well-stocked and all. But still, I was excited that morning sickness and pregnancy hadn’t completely zapped my brain of the ability to bargain shop! And I’m hopeful I can jump back onto the $40/week budget soon.
So that’s our wrap-up of savings this week. How’d you do this week? Post about the deals and
