First of all, let me say that I PROMISE my next post will be one explaining my most recent big news (my BFP!). I've been trying (rather unsuccessfully) to spend less time on the computer & more time getting the house in order, now that I'm only working 3-hour work days until the 11th. The house is slowly getting into better shape, but somehow I'm still spending way too much time online.
I took advantage of some great savings/deals at Rite-Aid today. I had to make 2 trips because I forgot my diaper coupons (yes, I'm already starting to stock up! We plan to use cloth diapers mostly, but I figure for travel & babysitter purposes, it will be nice to have some disposables on hand). It turns out to be a good thing that I DID forget my diaper coupons because even though I spent a little more money, I got a GREAT deal on the diapers & I'm excited to share!
Sorry it's a bad pic (phone camera), but here's the break-down:
