QFC Grocery Basket 2/13
Today is Ash Wednesday for people of the Catholic religion and it is the first day of Lent. Not being a Catholic I was always curious about my friends who gave something important up for Lent. I've heard the usual stuff like drinking, gambling, and smoking, but also crazy stuff like chocolate, sugar, and sex. Now, why would you want to get carried away and give up chocolate?? Or sex?? Boggles the mind.
If Miss MoneyPenny were participating in Lent, she would have to make a decision to give up Coffee Mate or writing her blog, as they are pretty important to her. Rest assured that neither one is gonna happen anytime soon, but I thought that this would be a good time to renew my vow to never knowingly waste your money, or your time. Miss MoneyPenny does the research and interviews the sources to get the best information and deals to you in a timely manner because managing a household and getting the most for your money is a tough gig.
Let's take a look at the QFC ad now that we have the ceremony out of the way. The ad is pretty good this week even if it is short on veggies. Be sure and log in to the QFC site and download your ecoupons onto your card. Between the ecoupons and the coupons that QFC sends in the mail, I rarely clip any more. Remember to print out a list of your ecoupons as nobody could remember them. I'm speaking from experience here.

Carpal Tunnel Surgery Update:
It looks like the 28th is the big day, and get this, I'm having BOTH hands done at the same time. Talk about a thrill seeker!! Dr. Wicks assures me that this is the way to go. He says that this quick surgery has come a long way and that I can even drive myself. He also assures me that my electrocuted hands will be gone that first night!! I told him that this sounds too good to be true. We will see. I'll keep you posted.
