Beth’s Shopping Trip 4/30/12

I have been away from the site for about a week while on vacation, and have not done much shopping during that time. This week we came home Sunday and there were some great deals going on, plus my refrigerator was kind of bare. I grabbed the kiddos and we hit the store yesterday afternoon. I did three stores with the kids, came home put them to bed and finished up my last two. Unfortunately, my rite aid was completely out of stock of every item on my list. I guess that happens sometimes, so I didn’t end up buying anything there. Here is what I did get though.
