Christmas Week 5 for 5

It's Monday! That means a new installment of 5 for Five with Jenn and Jessica!  See the blogs participating by clicking on the button on the left or below.


Last week's goals:
1. Really decide on the Christmas plans (it's only 1 week away!)
            I decorated a bit, see the post here.  We also went to a step-son's house for a fun family gathering.  We will be going to my mom's for Christmas dinner too.

2. Finish getting caught up on my blog reading and commenting.
             Still working on this one!  I only have 783 blogs to read....I don't think I'm going to be commenting on all of them.

3. Go grocery shopping
              Done!  $231 later we have food again!  To be fair, it is just two of us and we haven't been grocery shopping in probably 3-4 weeks.  And I saved almost $100 using my grocery savings card and coupons.  I probably could have saved more, but I wasn't organized enough with the coupons.

4. Make fresh juice twice this week.
             Nope...not once...but I looked at all the fruit and veggies I have to make some.  Does that count?

5. Read 10 newspapers.
             I read 8 (although most of them were yesterday)

Not too bad this past week.

So what are the plans for Christmas week?
1. Rest while I have a few days off.
2. Make fresh juice twice this week.
3. Read 10 newspapers.
4. Finish wrapping presents.
5. Get my coupons organized.
