My kids and I were lucky enough to be invited to this year’s Baby Brunch, given by our local Macaroni Kids writer, Karie Twardus. Karie and her husband own Hopping Good Time, a local indoor inflatable fun park, so it was the perfect venue for families with small children!

The voxboxes include all sorts of goodies and they are a blast to review!

This is the first in a series of posts on how to save money on your food bill. I have been posting each time Harris Teeter has super double coupons. This is a crucial element to my success. If you are lucky enough to have a grocery store that runs super double coupons (doubled up to $2) then you really need to plan to take advantage of this.
