Today I am thankful for time spent together as a family. We had planned to go to Baugher's today and pick out a pumpkin, but they were nuts, so we decided to try next weekend instead. Since I was off and we were already out, we ran errands as a family. It wasn't exactly what we had in mind for family fun, but it was still nice to spend time together. Usually Sunday mornings are Howard and Is alone time - we hit CVS, ALDI, and Giant, pick up lunch, and head home. It seems like such a simple thing, but it was nice to have Joe with us. With the busy and sometimes crazy season of life that we are in, I am thankful for any moment that we can spend together as a family of 3.

Today I am thankful for having an amazing 'free-standing' Dollar Tree in our town. We have always had a Dollar Tree in Westminster, but it use to be located in the mall, and never had a large food section or freezers. A few years ago it moved into a strip mall, and it's been the best thing ever! It's larger, so it can carry a better variety of items, and it has cold cases and freezers. The Dollar Tree is my first stop for a LOT of items, and sets the standard for my deal shopping. I know what I can get there for a $1, so when couponing, I know if the Dollar Tree sells it, it needs to cost less than a $1 for it to be a good bargain. They also carry newspapers on Saturday mornings, so instead of paying $2.50 each, I get them for a $1. I love that the Dollar Tree carries everyday items, like allergy medicine, as well as fun splurges, like decor and craft supplies. They can be a one-stop-shop most of the time, which with my busy schedule, I am very thankful for.
