Meal Plan Monday will include all the meals we'll be eating next week! So stay tuned...

I have been asked on more than one occasion, how I possibly have enough time to go to 3 stores.  First, I shop with a list, so I'm not wandering around wondering what to buy.  Second, 2 of these stores are directly across the street, and the other is only a couple miles away.  Third, I grocery shop without the kids!  I plan, and print/cut coupons, during nap time during the week.  And I shop either during school hours, or a time when J can be at home.  Last night I left after dinner, and returned home 1 hour and 45 minutes later.  (I was gimping along with a sore knee, or I might have been even faster!)
