I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow!!! I am going to update the groc challenge today although I don't really feel it is fair. I have spent less than $20 this month so I am WAY under budget. The little I did spend was at CVS so my amount saved is going to be WAY WAY higher than my OOP. I just really haven't had the time, energy or desire to groc shop this month. So I really feel bad...like if I win it wouldn't be because I actually tried. It would be just because I don't feel like shopping. I am going to WM later to get some nutripals because my coupons expire at the end of the month. They are the least expensive at WM. I might pick up some ground beef and make meatloaf/meatballs for dinner. But I really doubt I'll spend more than $20 so my OOP will still be WAY WAY under budget. Kim...feel free to disqualify me based off of not shopping. If I were to win this really isn't the way I would want to win.
I'll be back on later to update my totals...need to locate 1 more receipt.
I hope everyone has a happy, healthy and FRUGAL New Years!!!

Don't be jealous...I'm crazy. I live in bright sunny FL where the weather has still been in the 70's-80's and I am going to freezing cold snowy WI!!!! I am traveling with my dh and our 3 kids....one that cries constantly (Claire 4.5 months), one that can't sit still for 2 seconds (Paige, 23 months) and one that talks constantly (Alexis, 6 years). The flight alone will be an adventure!!! lol

I'm right next door in Michigan, and it's 31 degrees here right now. If you're going further north than Milwaukee, it'll probably be colder. Make sure you're prepared for airline delays, as WI is getting snowed on as we speak. I don't know if it's as gross as MI, but we're expecting 5-7 inches by tonight. *shrug* Enjoy your vacay, though. Snow isn't sooooo awful once you get used to it.

We will be just south of Milwaukee most of the time. We are taking a day or 2 to go to Green Bay though. I talked to my mom earlier and she said they got 6 inches today. She said it wasn't too cold...about 31. Ummmm...that's cold!!! It is 10pm here and it is 71 degrees still.

I used to go sledding all the time when I was a kid. That might be fun now that I found a winter jacket (borrowed from my neighbor's daughter when I brought them some milk that would have expired while we were gone).
