Cheap and Cheerful Chatter: $300 Grocery Challenge -- Week 3

I have been so, so busy so I sent Mr. Cheap and Cheerful to Safeway for me this week! He gets an A+ for sticking to the list and saving almost $19 by taking advantage of Club Card specials. He spent $45.07 total and we will only need one fill-in trip to get us through the 3 more days this month that we'll be at home. It looks like we'll make the $300 cut this month but I imagine many of you are hosting Thanksgiving and we're not; I am sure November can get more expensive than most months.

We're making soup again this week, eating up our eggs and potatoes in a frittata, and also having pasta, tacos/burritos, and salami and sundried tomato pizza for dinners.

Cheap and Cheerful wants to know: What is your favorite homemade soup? (We love pea soup and rosemary and white bean. Yum!)

Deal of the Day: Where's Waldo?

My son has been asking for a globe. I found this one at 50% off. It's a smaller globe which is perfect for my son's smallish bedroom. So, if Santa brings the world to our house, we can play a 3D game of Where's Waldo which the kids adore. Hey, I need to brush up on geography myself so this will be a great gift for the entire family.

Favorite Things: Silly Slippers

My kids beg me for slippers all of the time. Then, when I tell them we should go pick out a pair, they balk and say they don't want them. So I spend a lot of time looking at slippers that my kids love to look at but would never put on their cold little feet. But I thought I'd share some of the cheap and cheerful options I've found with you in case Santa is looking for some for his sleigh.

* Cupcake slippers from Children's Place (There is an adorable matching robe!)

* Hello Kitty slippers from Target
