  1. Our Dollar Tree doesn't carry bread but I've been getting the good whole wheat bread for 1.29 at the discount bread store. I will keep checking DT though. Our DT moved into a bigger store so I thought they might start having more grocery type items.

  2. Are those the Tuf bags at Walgreen's you're talking about? I got some kitchen size ones for free a while back and was quite pleasantly surprised at how sturdy they are!

  3. You have a super clean kitchen! I so love your weekly budget posts... You are my hero!

    I got Brody's bibs yesterday! THANK YOU SO MUCH! We did a photo shoot with them today and it will be my blog post tomorrow!! Thank you again, you are SOOOOO sweet!!

  4. Rachel- yes, the Tuf brand bags are what I buy. I have no idea why I thought they were Walgreens brand, I guess because I always buy them there.
    The big lawn and leaf size works great too.
