Back to Work Reality Check & Shopping Trip

Since returning to work full time in October, I have finally come to the realization that a maid is not going to appear to take care of the house!  While at home, I created {to do lists} that kept me going and organized.  This week, I began adjusting them for the working me.  The daily list still works pretty well, the weekly routine is out of the question, and I haven't even begun the heavy duty cleaning lists.  One step at a time!
As I adjust (finally) to my new work schedule, I will share any new versions of my to do lists with you.
This was from another trip, but I never shared it.  I was amazed when my receipt was taller than Jackson!
Now to pat myself on the back, I went {grocery shopping} on Monday, and I got $65 worth of groceries for $7.34!  I was on my game for that one.  I got
  • 2 family size Stouffers meals
  • 5 {MorningStar} meals
  • 4 Progresso recipe starters
  • 3 boxes of original Cheerios
  • 2 100-count boxes Lipton tea
  • 2 Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 2 Yoplait yogurts
Two tips from this shopping trip:
Check the prices on all similar products.  Pillsbury buttery crescents were on sale for $2, but the originals were $1.85.
Go over your receipt.  I had the boys with me, so I missed that one of the MorningStar products wasn't on sale.  It was $5.49 instead of the sale price of $1.99.  With coupons, I should have had it for free.  Thanks to Publix, I was able to exchange it and got the difference back.
Did you have any great shopping trips?  Feel free to link a post!
