Turkey Day Update
Here is an update! I have spent a total of....(drum roll) $11! The list has grown...so maybe $20 is a better guess :)
I am so excited about Thanksgiving! It is one of my favorites! This year we are staying close to home since my work is insane and my husband is quite possibly the busiest person on the planet. But thank goodness my mother lives about a mile down the road so we are headed her way for the feast! Well, the other night I was organizing my coupons (I have such the wild social life, no?) and I had an amazing idea! I will try and buy all of my mothers thanksgiving list for under $10! Now, after viewing the list (below) I have changed it to $15...but I think I can do it. And I will document along the way! So far I have three things for under $1!
