Update: Need to check the date - no clue when Coke might expire - will let you know.
Yes check that date, I was in charge of the coke order at the Forest Preserve and some of our deliveries had a short shelf life. Could be why it was on sale:rolleyes:. Diet is the worse, goes flat if too far from the expiration date. You can usually drink the Coke past the date if not more than 2 months.

I phoned in an order for my mom while I was there and was told 3 weeks for delivery. I repeated what she said and she said yes 3 weeks. If ordering rather than shopping in person earlier may be better.

Amazon is dangerous.
Got another free 30day Prime trial, so thought I may as well use it. Bought the kids two more gifts each, whittling away their Christmas list.
Need to find a way of smuggling them into the house without me being interrogated

Went to bath and body works to use my coupons. Got a couple of fall hand soaps and 2 of the big bottles of hand sanitizer for my son.
Happen to see a bottle of wine at the grocery store from the vineyard my son likes so picked that up for him too.

Added a couple more items to the gift tote yesterday. Bath and body had their hand soaps on sale. So I grabbed 3 fall ones and a couple other ones for the gift tote. Fabric store had a sale on so I was able to grab the fabric/notions for a sewing box gift that I am putting together.

Ran out early yesterday to get a oriel feeder for my husband that I saw when he was with me a couple weeks ago. We had 2 males and a female this spring. my husband had the best time watching them. They get pretty picky feeding so this feeder does fruit, jelly and nectar.

Ordered three Mophies (phone sanitizer/chargers) at Verizon as they were out of stock so they will ship to the house. Because I bought three, they were considered a bundle (buy two, get one free) so I saved $80.

I think given the circumstances we are doing very well with filling the closet. I still need a few more things especially for DD and DFSIL buit am happy with their lot for now.

Went to the big hardware store and got DFSIL a free standing raised garden bed. That will be his big gift and I will get him a gift card to go with it. I think I am nearly finished with the gifts but just need to look through the planner and double check.

Debbie, DFSIL and DD have a little courtyard townhouse and I thought that they could at least grown a few tomatoes or strawberries.
