Leprechaun Shopping Fun

The other day I went into Price Chopper to grab a few items, although I can never just grab a few…I always walk out with more than initially planned, and saw this 2 pound pack of kiwis for only $3.00.  It was an immediate grab, because my crew loves kiwi’s and will eat them with breakfast, in the lunchbox, after … Read More
