September Budget


I don't know if you noticed,  but I didn't have many (if any??) grocery trip posts last month.  lol  Mostly it's because on Sept 1st I went to Costco and spent $260...LOL  Man I love that store....  Anyway I didn't go to the store much after that because I'm trying to stick to my $300 budget.

Well...I went over.  I spent $360.81 :)  Could have been worse... much worse without coupons.   This month will be better.  I love this blog because I feel accountable.  Keeps me in line. :)

I'm amazed how well you do with a budget. Costco/Sam's Club will ruin any budget!

$60 over is not bad at all. I like seeing your budget recaps, it makes me look at mine for the month. I've noticed that I have a ton of items in my food storage and stockpile so for October I'm trying to keep it to $75 for the month. One huge lesson I've learned with using coupons is the deals always come back around.
$75! I'm sure you can do it. Your right the deals usually repeat themselves...thank goodness :)

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
