Day # 2: Costco

 I believe that the direction and vision of my blog changed starting yesterday with the development of the "better" mommy project. I have decided to make this blog a journal of my progress in this journey, that way I can look back at the end of the year to see how far I've come (hopefully), all the mistakes I've made, and all of the new experiences I've had.

 So Day #1 of the better mommy project: success! I decided, after much thought and FB(Facebook) deliberation, to join Costco. I was also informed of some great deals on Amazon for diapers and wipes (um yes, sign me up for someone delivering diapers and wipes to my door every month) with the Mom Prime account. Oh yes, I qualify for Mom Prime because I am a mom, and a proud one at that!
  Yesterday I decided on Costco, today, I shopped Costco with a dedicated mission of buying items in bulk with no expiration date. I became a member, bought in bulk, and snacked on samples. It was an amazing grocery experience. However, I don't think I'll ever be able to spend less than $100 when shopping there. Forty bucks of that was paper goods, and I'm stocked until next Spring on toilet paper. Unfortunately, I fell prey to some granola nutty raisin goodness, in bulk of course. I'll be eating that until 2015 since both of my children have nut allergies.....
  All in all Day # 2 was productive. Although in places like Costco you may initially spend more, in the end you spend less. I mean, I won't be needing to purchase paper towels for years months.

I want to hang out with this woman, check out all the wine! You know she's got kids!
