Guess What, I'm Moving!

After over a decade, I am leaving Provo. It is a happy move- Matt got a job! Hooray! It's hard for me to think of life away from Utah but we're looking forward to this next stage in our lives.

I will still be blogging, although probably not so much in the next few weeks as he starts his job VERY soon and we aren't exactly "packed."

We are moving back home to Washington where I'm excited to find new resources for grocery shopping. Anyone from Western Washington have some great match-up sites? I've spent some time looking and haven't been too impressed with any sites for QFC, Fred Meyer, Safeway and others.

Anyways, thanks for being patient with me as my life gets completely out of balance for a while. Must be because I'm always so on top of things and am super prepared. Yikes.

Incidentally, how many bottles of hairspray am I allowed to pack before it becomes ridiculous? What about toothpaste? Shampoo? Soap? Just wondering.


  1. It sounds like you'll need to be the one to set up the northwest deal sites. :)

  2. Yay for Matt getting a big job and going back to your roots! I would suggest going to or Both of these places have blog links that do matchups for your specific store. This helped me a lot when I moved to Massachusetts. And I heard that pinching your pennies was branching out to Washington- so if they don't have grocery lists up yet, they are looking to expand and you possibly could be a grocery matchup person and get paid to do their lists. Anyway, email me if you're interested and i can get you in contact with the person over it. Good luck!

  3. I'm so jealous!!! I'm from western Washington! What city are you moving to? QFC and Fred Meyer are both Kroger stores. QFC is more expensive. I really liked Fred Meyer... plus the one I went to had a playland that I could check my daughter into while I shopped. it was AWESOME! I like Safeway too... they're store brand ice cream is really good. Albertsons, however, was still my favorite for deals. Newspapers are expensive out there, but Dollar Tree does sell them... if you can find them Monday morning.

  4. Congratulations! I'm sure you are thrilled to have a "real" job. Provo will certainly miss you. Make sure you send us your new address so we can exchange Christmas cards! All our love!
