Monday Shopping with a 2 week old and 2 year old

Pretty excited about my shopping trip this morning... I had my 2 week old and 2 year old along and thankfully the baby slept the whole time and the 2 year old only had to sit in time out for 20 seconds when we got home :) 

This is what I walked out of Old Navy, Babies R Us, and Office Max with and only paid $25.39 (before taxes)! Plus I will be getting back $16.98 in Office Max Rewards. If I would have paid for everything full price it would have come to $64.84!
Not bad for a new mom of 2 and having my husband away on business.

Target Trip 7/9/12

I haven't shopped at Target in a LONG time, let alone used coupons. I am pretty pleased at my first couponing trip back to Target. It was weird buying a skirt and shirt while I am 9 months pregnant, but I know my sizes and am praying in about 3 months or less I will fit. Also a little excited about finding the plastic lunch set since we are trying to save money by having my husband pack a lunch (today he brought "fried" chicken, potato salad, veggies, and a leftover cupcake from my daughter's party).

1- Xhileration skirt $6.48 on clearance

MAM's Smile Care Party

Thanks to Child's Play Party I was recently given the oppurtunity to host a MAM Party with some awesome giveaways for my guests! 

I was given this packet of info for myself and my guests as well as a fun little game to play:

I was able to give out this awesome goody bag with an estimated value of $20 worth of MAM produts:
-MAM Baby Oral Care Rabbit
-MAM Baby Massaging Brush
-MAM Baby Learn to Brush Set
-$1/1 MAM Product Coupon
-Three fact-filled brochures provided by MAM

I had some yummy snacks for my MAM partiers which included popcorn (a gluten free snack I made last minute for some gluten free eaters) and strawberry banana bread. I ate my fair share :)

One of the attendees opening his bag and deciding the toys in the toy box were more interesting than the toothbrushes haha. His little sister will enjoy the products a little more I believe...

Overall it was a fun time and I am thankful to Child's Play Party for the oppurtunity to host! 
To find out more about MAM go to their website MAM Baby or their facebook page MAM USA

*I hosted with no monetary compensation, but was given a hostess present which my little one has been using.

I am not always a fan of going to CVS multiple times in a week, but when I can get things for FREE or almost free it's worth an extra trip and a little exercise.
