Strawberry Pickin' and Good Deals

Today after work, my friend was going strawberry picking with her daughter. So, I invited myself and my two kids :) ha ha!! Anyway, we ventured on over to our strawberry pickin' destination and got some good berries.

Today was payday, so that means coupon shopping night out with my friend, Lianne. We have the best time in finding awesome deals. CVS is our new favorite destination for great deals. I will break down the awesomeness of our outing.
CVS: 1st order
