My Shopping Trip: ShopRite, The Farmer’s Market & One Happy Puppy!

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Okay, here is round 2 of ShopRite Can Can Sale week shopping.  And today I actually spent some of that grocery money I have been “hoarding”.  Well, I have to admit, I actually didn’t spend the money.  My daughter Nikki did a good job all by herself.

I’m a little under the weather today and wasn’t really up for a shopping trip, so, I asked told Nikki she was going for me.  And, since she said no yes, I took the opportunity to not only send her to ShopRite but also to the Farmers Market.  Wasn’t that nice of her to do that for me 😉

So, here is what we got today.  And, the one happy camper is Bogo who is now fully stocked with treats. 🙂
