I have not done any bargin shopping really since I have been gone. There are lots of good ECB deals at CVS this week so maybe I will venture out to those. Office Max and Staples has some back to school supplies that might be worth checking out.
Im hoping to have more time to blog later tonight, so check back...its nap time here.

Their claim is that they can tell you what you are having much earlier than a ultrasound.
On their website it says they are 90% accurate.
SO if that is the case then it looks like we could be expecting a BOY!
Of course Im not rushing out to buy blue things, I know this isnt always accurate. Im still holding out on hope on a little girl and we will just wait and see what the ultrasound says when its time.

All these items were either on sale or had a coupon with them, the coupons were all in the Walgreens Ad so you can get them from the ad that they have at the front of the store. There was a limit on some of the items.
These school supplies will probably be donated to Madison's school as Ive already picked up her school supplies for the year.

ON the left bar click to order free kits. There are 3 different types they have and you can order up to 5 sets (which does like 20 blinds). This is good for US and Canada....completely free! Hurry!
But the cost of items are just becoming too much and the way the economy is, its time for me to start saving more money. Im still going to buy organic milk and produce for sure and Christophers shampoo/bodywash will need to be the organic fragrance free stuff since his skin is soo sensitive, but everything else, if I can get it with a coupon you can bet your sweet behind that Im getting it! I will continue to make my own household cleaner though b/c well, its cheap and I actually really like it.
I used to have a big stockpile but I gave some away and even sold some to my mom, but now I need to get it back up and running. I have lots of inserts I need to clip and get my coupon notebook organized. Once I have that done I can take a picture to share.
The first big coupon trip Im going to do is going to be at CVS on Sunday. Loreal Vive Shampoo is buy 1 get 1 free. This past Sunday there was a coupon for Loreal Vive shampoo, b1g1 free. So that is free shampoo! I have 5 of these coupons so that amounts to 10 bottles of shampoo for free!! What a amazing bargain to get started back with dont you agree?!

I had a ultrasound and on Thursday I was exactly 8 weeks. So due around February 18th-19th. Which is the exact date I had figured out by my own calculations. The ultrasound pic looks like a little blob....LOL You cant really tell that its a baby at all.
I had some blood work done, 5 vials! Ouch! But it is needed by all patients of course. I met with the OB coordinator to find out how much I'm going to have to pay before the baby is born, and let me just say...eating out and spending on non essential items is really going to have to die down here! We have our weeks where we go over board but overall I think we do pretty good, but after getting that number from the OB coordinator I think it needs to go down a little more.
My next appt is August 7th. I have another ultrasound. I will be around 12 weeks, which is too early to tell us the gender but it should look more like a baby and not a blob.
