Well - today is my first official day back!! We welcome the kids on Tuesday.
I guess it is fitting that I share a sanity saver since I will most definitely have to use them now!!
Going back to the routine is so hard (waking up, peeing at certain times - the hardest!, eating at specific times etc!)
I am SO tired during the first month back.. and I just do NOT want to leave my house.. for anything , not even on the weekend! All I want to do is sleeeeeep.
So.. I make it a priority to grocery shop on Friday nights after school before I head home. I refuse to go at any other time during the week, so it's important that I am organized and have my meals already planned out.
I like to use the free AnyList app to make my grocery list. SO easy to use and I love the speech recognition so I don't even have to type out what I need to buy
Another essential tool on my phone is Checkout51 . I love saving money..so I always check this app to see if any of my listed items are on promotion. This app gives you money back if you upload a picture of your receipt that includes promotional items. YAY for money back on your groceries!!
The last app that I consult is Flipp - it has all the grocery store flyers so I can see what's on sale, where. I don't mind hitting up 3 different stores in one night because they are all literally one across each other. I also like to see what's on sale, because I am BIG on stocking up on everything (except for fruits & veggies, of course!) Flipp now even has a grocery list capability. LOVE!
