Bargain Baby

If you know me very well, you know that I am a HUGE bargain shopper. I very rarely pay full price for anything. I have a coupon or some way to get a discount for just about everything. Here's a couple of my latest bargains. The second picture was supposed to be much more impressive, and actually would have been, had a been able to finish out my "coupon shopping" last week. Between my duties as wife, mom, and working 3 part time jobs....I sometimes forget to breath. (The joke of losing your head if it wasn't attached is taken very seriously in this household because I would MOST DEF. lose joke!) Needless to say, I didn't have time to get to the last store but here it is anyway!

Bath and Body Works: Retail $31 plus tax......I paid $11.23 total

Collection of Target, CVS, and Wal-Mart: I didn't add up the original prices but I spent $3+$8+$7= $18 total

It may not look like a whole lot, but if you take into consideration what's in this picture I think $18 is pretty good!! (Diapers, light bulbs, band-aids(x2), cereal(x4), body wash(x2), deodorant(x3), a several other things.) You may also look at some items and wonder why I even got them at all. More than likely they were free (ex. baby shampoo, tuna(x2), Tide pouch, Renu...). I have a lot of fun bargain shopping and look forward to matching up coupons with ads each week!!

Haylee was actually a bargain baby. We used a buy one get one free coupon for the embryos and then went on half price day for the transfer. I don't mess around with bargains! (Early April Fool's Day joke...not to be taken seriously.)

Miss Model

**I'm sorry - I guess my computer logs me in automatically so I forgot to give you guys a step. I've made the appropriate changes below. Sorry! **

Our ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL photographer just built a studio in her house. Haylee was one of the lucky ones to "model" for her so she could play with backgrounds and lighting. It gets a little more challenging to take pictures when they become so mobile, but Erin is so great with the babies regardless of age and/or mobility! Besides wanting to GO GO GO, Haylee did great! :) Here's access to the gallery if you're interested in viewing the pictures:

If you ever need pictures done, once again, I HIGHLY recommend Erin.
