Yes, I did just spend a ton of money on frozen meals (it would have $2 less but I forgot my two Lean Cuisine coupons in the car and I was not about to go back into the store for $2 with my eight week old baby who could have woken up at any moment crying). I needed quick and healthy things to eat for lunch because I have just been skipping lunch altogether. I also needed food that was dairy free; from what I can tell the only frozen meal that I can eat out of the tons that are on the market is the Lean Cuisine pot stickers. I've read what seems like every ingredient list on every frozen meal and this seems to be the only one without dairy- if you have seen any other please let me know!

The dairy free thing is also why I spent a lot of money on bread. They were all out of the bread I usually buy for about $2.50 and the only other bread that was dairy free and that didn't have high fructose corn syrup was super expensive. Oh well, at least it doesn't expire until January 10th. Plus, we'll be going through a lot less milk now so I guess if I have to spend more on bread here and there it's not a big deal.

I am very proud of myself for only buying one thing from the Christmas clearance. I am sick of buying crap I don't need and am sick of everything that in any way relates to Christmas. I am also not going to go crazy with the upcoming toy clearance- I am so over deals on toys after all of the Christmas shopping I did!
