36 weeks and 36 dollars

I can't believe I didn't post my 36 week milestone on wasn't much to share. Then I had my non-stress test Friday which went South quickly and required yet another extensive (aka expensive) test via ultrasound. So, a Biophysical profile was done just to make sure Griffin is behaving. He passed the BPP but failed his NST, so the gist here is I'm still preggo, Griffey is hangin' out-oh, bottoms up now apparently. I was shocked to be told his big ole noggin is down again. I don't really have any clue what any of this means-likely due to already taking my ambien tonight and feeling quite loopy;-)

I am excited about the end in site...5 days to go. What a blessing and SCARY realization. I'm going to be a mommy again!

So, about the $36 ---I thought it fitting to share my $36 purchase from Kmart...if you hadn't heard, my Lafayette KMart is doubling coupons up to $2 (so if you have some high value q' can get some very good deals. Here's my finds pic:

I spent less than $1 per item (averaged out). As you can see from the photo, I have continued the baby wipe stock up. I also found the best deal on our type of laundry detergent. A huge percentage of my finds were entirely free. The checker even noticed that I only had one item that wasn't free (a cadbury egg after Easter deal I couldn't pass up ;-)

What you can't see but I highly recommend you go in for is a great card deal-they sell American Greetings and have in store Q's available-the coupon says $2 off 3 cards, but it will be doubled to $4 so it will be $4 off 3 cards-fun;-)

They weren't out of a ton of stuff yet and it was pretty slow when I was there. It was my first time using super doubles-but it was fun (and tiring).

I may go back for the card deal and a few others but otherwise, I think we are stocked up and ready for Griff's arrival. I nervous, scared, giddy, and all around feeling inadequate to be his mommy.

I hope you will be able to enjoy some delicious deals from double coupons from KMart this week;-)

Last minute disclaimer-remember, I am highly ambienized so i fear this is a lame post. no making fun or I'll cry even more;-(

UNbelievable...(how much you got for that price). You are so inspiring in your coupon endeavors. I wish I could get my act together and get the knack like you have.

I can't believe only 5 (or 4?) more days to exciting!!
