Publix Shopping Trip 7/26 $119 Worth in Groceries for $32.29

We have moved to a new home! Come visit us at Capturing Inspirations at!

I have a few things to mention in today's post. My weekly savings trip is in with a Pinterest Challenge update! Lots of goodies to share with you all! Brace yourselves!

The great thing about couponing is if sales aren't too stellar for the week, you've usually got a few items stocked up to get you by. I'm hoping next week deals are better for my family. There wasn't a whole lot that I was excited about, so I decided to mix my full weeks shopping in with the best deals (keep in mind, I purchase all my produce from a local market...and I buy a LOT of fresh produce). All is not lost, though. Always some great deals to be had.

All for $32.29!

I also wanted to add a quick update on the Pinterest Challenge that has been going on for the month of July. I haven't posted too much about my pins, however, I have not lost sight of my goal. I postponed the memory verses with my son and added another recipe to try. Definitely a solid winner. I'm adding it to my kitchen cookbook and wanted to share it with you all here. I truly love the website "I Heart Publix" and who knew the recipes they share would also be equally as awesome. I tried Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya, and if you like a little heat, you should try it too.

So continuing on with the Pinterest Challenge, from my Inspired board, I decided to try out Fitness Magazine's "8-Minute Workout: Yoga for Better Sleep" and it was awesome. A great way to ease into sleep mode, while giving your body a well deserved stretch.

I really began enjoying yoga when my son became a "true" toddler. If you've been around toddlers then you know what I mean. It's when they begin to have an opinion, one that may only be communicated through tantrums and screams. Man on man. I have learned to become a patient woman.

When my daughter was born and I started the juggling act of my time between two children, both under two years of age, I needed some form of relaxation. I also wanted to begin getting back into my pre-baby shape. Yoga was a great addition to my exercise routine, which typically consisted of running and strength training.

Lastly, I wanted to note that I am hunting for a natural window cleaner too, random, I know. But see the pictures below to see what inspired this motivation. I'm thinking Pinterest is just the place to begin my search, but if you all have a great nontoxic one to share, please comment below. I'm ready to rid my home of harsh chemicals for good...but before I can truly let go, I need a few more solid replacements.

Any other great "pins" to share? I'd love to hear what you've come up with! Don't be shy - remember to comment on how you're coming along. A few days left until August. Wow!
