I did my CVS shopping yesterday since the Irish Spring ECB deal was only through Tuesday and my ECB's expired the end of this week and I wanted to roll them with something that would get me close to the same in ECB's back. I was also in dreadful need of a back cracking, so I combined my chiropractic visit with my CVS run and didn't feel like I was wasting gas on just one errend.

Good find on the meat! We are considering buying a fattened animal off Jul & Linden and getting it butchered. It won't be as cheap as your meat, but it will be cheaper than buying it here and there at regular price. Besides, I just don't buy beef in general because I'm sure it will be tough and worthless. I prefer fattened cow meat. So, it all means we haven't been eating beef for some time. Chicken, T-loin, ham, and fish have been our meats, and then now the deer meat, which has really helped out--bean pies, taco salad, etc. But, I am in need of stuff to make stews out of so I can grind them up for Hannah.
