Wally World vs. Regular grocery stores

So I go to the Hoggly Woggly (aka the Piggly Wiggly, thanks Mandy) this morning to get a few ingredients for dinner tonight.  I wind up coming out with 4 bags full of things: 3 boxes of bagel-fuls, oatmeal, applesauce and various other things that were on my Wal-Mart list.  I knew they were more expensive than when I go to Wal-Mart, but for some reason, when he rang me up, it was $22.  I'm not kidding when I say I can come out of Wal-Mart with the SAME things and its $80.  Hubby claims it's because I don't get just groceries at Wal-Mart but I'm beginning to think it's a conspiracy.  No, seriously.

So, not only is it an added benefit that it's closer, easier and faster to take the kiddos to the Hoggly Woggly up the road, but it's also apparently cheaper.  I told myself there would be no more trips with both my kids to Wal Mart while I'm this pregnant (by myself).  It's just too much lately.  So, I guess that will be my "quick" stop these next few days as I await unnamed New Baby's arrival.  Which, if my doc doesn't let me down will be around next weekend sometime.

Go Piggly Wiggly!! It is always good when you find a store that keeps you away from Wal-Mart. It is an added bonus that it is so close to home and less expensive!

I can't believe it is already ready for #3 to be here, whatever her name ends up being. Hubby needs to get on the ball with this name thing!! You can do it! It is only one of the most important decisions you will make for your child. She will be stuck with whatever you name her for the rest of her life. =-)

By the way, when is hubby signing up for his surgery to ensure #4 is not here next year? I'm keeping you guys in my prayers!

Never say never to saving a buck or two or sixty right? ;)

It's getting close! I can't wait to see pictures of the new little one. How exciting!
