Out and About!

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Tonight Kimm and I did a few errands after dinner (which by the way was a simple baked potato with butter and sour cream, salt and pepper).  We headed out to the library–always fun!  We both picked up some books and of course I read my People magazine!

Then on to Stop and Shop for a few groceries.  My good friend Jen, who now lives in Georgia had sent us a $25 gift certificate as an Easter gift–this was so nice of her 🙂  Of course we ended up spending way more than $25.  Tonight when we were shopping we decided to try using the “Scan It” tool that S&S now offers.  Basically it is a scanner that you take with you when you shop so you can scan and bag your items as you go so that when you get to the checkout all you have to do is pay.  It took us a little getting used to, especially in the produce department, since we had to weigh everything and print out a sticker there.  But I think that we probably will use it again, because it keeps a running total and shows your S&S discounts immediately.  It’s nice to know how much you are spending as you are shopping.  It MAY even help us spend less.

Then when we came home we had some homemade guacamole with some Tostitos Hint of Lime tortilla chips which Kimm wanted to try.  I was a bit hesitant, but it turns out that I think I enjoyed them more than she did!  I will definitely be buying these again.

Another day gone.  They tend to go by awful fast.  Tomorrow I have a lot to accomplish, as usual!
