You can judge me, but I refuse to feel guilty

Let me start by saying that with my job change, and Troy's desired career change, things are tight in our house. Some months, they're stupidly tight, but we manage.

Jack doesn't like many veggies, or pasta (any of the gluten-free ones), so with his food allergies (Dairy and wheat), the products he chooses to eat can be crazy expensive. The only gluten-free bread he likes cost $6 a loaf, and he'll eat a loaf a week. The sheep's milk cheese that he enjoys costs about $8 a week. Added to that, the coconut milk he drinks for fat and protein runs about $8 a week.

So, given all that, I refuse to apologize for my actions today. I was at the market to get J's special milk and saw that someone had taped $1 off coupons to half of the cartons. At $3.99 for a half gallon of the stuff, I looked around to make sure no one was looking, and ripped off all the coupons and shoved them in my purse. Sue me.

You are such an inspiration, Sarah! The other day when I was in Fred Meyer I was purchasing some Challenge butter...noticed four of the packages had "Save Now" coupons attached to them...I grabbed all four and put them in my cart! ;o)
