I know it's more work but I'd love to know where you bought your groceries.
Like- bulk barley- Piggly Wiggly.
Yogurt- Salvage store.
I'm just curious where you get some of your good deals.

I always think your total rocks. And "...a kid had sprayed breath spray in their eye" made me laugh out loud!

What didn't you like about the Creamy Banana Maple Syrup cream of wheat? I was thinking of trying it before I read that you didn't like it.

The kids didn't like the chunks of banana in it and they thought it wasn't sweet enough. But those are all preference things. A TON of people thought it was yummy!
