Questions & more savings

For once, I can say that my blogging absence has not been caused by lack of time, but more out of confusion over what to write about. I would love to hear from my readers who are still out there in the "trenches" of IF and tell me your feelings on the matter. I have ideas for a few posts that I would like to write, but I never want to make someone hurt or put someone through more pain than they're already feeling. Please, even if you've been a lurker until now, let me know your feelings on this!!! On one hand, I hate that this blog is venturing away from its initial purpose (infertility support/venting/etc.) and into one of blogging solely about my shopping trip savings & craft ventures...on the other hand, life circumstances kind of make it difficult to blog about actual infertility now.

And now for my weekly savings! It was another great week to add to my stockpile at Rite-Aid!

(pic coming soon)

Here's the breakdown:
2 Old Spice Deodorants - $1.50 each (plus I got $1 UPR for next time)
1 bottle Welch's Grape juice - $1
10oz Coppertone SPF 50 - $2.99
Cover Girl eyeliner 2-pack - $.89
Crest Sensitive - $1 OVERAGE
Drinking straws - $1
***and my exciting buy for the day...
3 Clearasil face washes (from the clearance aisle!) - $2.64 each - I had a $3/1 VV coupon, a $3/1 in-ad coupon & a $2/1 manufacturer coupon. They gave me overage on the $3 coupons (most likely because the clearance price didn't originally ring up & the cashier had to key it in to come up 50% off), so I got all 3 bottles for $.08 overage! When I originally went in to the store, I had intended to use all 3 coupons on one bottle of the reg. priced stuff, so this was a great find!

I used the $5/20 VV coupon & will get $2.99 in SCR. Once all is said and done, I will have paid $2.78 out of pocket!

Its okay to share your joy. When I was reading others blogs who were pregnant before I got pregnant, they gave me such HOPE. People really like to read about what you are truly feeling and going through! HUGS!

In my opinion you should blog about what's on your heart. Whether it's infertility or shopping or the miracle of the baby in your tummy. As we know, no matter what someone says or how they say it, sometimes it doesn't matter what it is, those going through infertility will have heartache. Different things will effect everyone differently and you can't really control that. I realized after about a hundred years :) that I have to share what God has put on my heart. Like embieadoptmom said, you never know when you'll give someone hope.
