Home Depot has their veggie and herb plants buy 1 get 1 free. Limit of 6 per customer.
This morning I picked up tomato (cherry and regular), zucchini, basil and cucumbers.
I hope to get a post up tonight on the sub-irrigated tote box planters I am going to build to grow my veggies and herbs!

Wow, has it really been a month since i have participated in food waste Friday??? I quit doing it for a couple weeks bc umm.. well I was embarrassed bc the couple of people who participated in the challenge all had like NO WASTE. But then Kristin did this post about how she was not as good at the beginning at doing no food waste AND how she was starting a blog roll of people who participated in food waste Fridays. And people came out of the wood works and they had WASTE and I did not have to feel as bad. So I am back. FOR GOOD!
I am pretty please with the reduction in food waste in our house.
This week we had:
Moldy strawberries, part of a can of cream of mushroom, and half a bowl of oatmeal.
"Americans waste more than 40 percent of the food we produce for consumption. That comes at an annual cost of more than $100 billion. At the same time, food prices and the number of Americans without enough to eat continues to rise"
From Wasted Food
I think the little things REALLY can make a difference in this world.

I started a new blog, for my new obession. I am going to lose weight once and for all.
Check it out here.
I have been toying with it for a while but wanted to not share it with anyone that I knew bc dude who wants the world to know what you weigh??? But then I thought it could make for some prime entertainment and dude who I am kidding?? its not like I can hide the fact that I am over weight, its kinda out there anyway.

Just a plain black one though, not the one you designed :( but who knows maybe yours will be so super fabulous that the god of Kroger will deem your design worthy enough to be on EVERY Kroger bag and then we (you know the masses) will all have "your" bag.

I personally am going to get the free hair scrunchies and free Mentos gum (if I can find any in stock).
Based on the number of Register Reward deals it looks like Walgreens is really going to do away with their Easy Saver program and change over to all Register Reward deals. BOO, I like my free after rebate items and always seem to have problems with the register rewards.
