The other night, Avery came in the kitchen while I was making dinner and went straight to the stove to stir the pot. I thought to myself, We've come a long way baby! It is such a pleasure to have help in the kitchen. Even Aidan has been getting in on the action by rinsing and drying dishes for me after dinner.
And while all is well in the kitchen these days, all is not well at the grocery store. I am experiencing a major case of sticker shock today after grocery shopping. Price increases have gone from subtle to startling. While our grocery bill isn't breaking the bank yet, I feel the need to really examine what I'm buying, what we are eating, and what we need to grow in our garden this year.
So how about you? Have you noticed an increase in your grocery bill, and if so, what are you doing to save money on food? Do I have to start clipping coupons? If so, I better make a cute fabric pouch to keep them in. At least that will be fun.
