First things first. In case you saw my post on Facebook and had any doubts, my McCafe caramel Frappe was just as delicious as always. So good, in fact, that I never hesitate to pay full price for that amazing cup of yummyness.

What am I trying to prove here? If you plan your shopping trips correctly, and match your coupons with sale prices, then you can get groceries and medicine for really cheap. After you save all that money, then you can splurge a little and treat yourself to a yummy McCafe treat. Or Starbucks treat. Or whatever other treat you want :)
Now on to the mail and laundry...
