  1. Hi, QH, Besides your husband, your brother, and yourself, who is the 4th adult, and does she/he still live with you now (March '22)?

  2. Would enjoy a revisit with reshopped to show change in price. Recipes look delicious!

  3. I'm missing some of these hauls. If you are ever willing to do these $10 a week segments again I bet they would be appreciated by more than just me. Especially now when we still deal with food shortages, and inflation.

  4. I haven't been in a Target store for about 3 years I didn't realize they have so much food my household and clothing come from thrift stores and garage sales. I do check all my grocery store ads when they come out on Wednesday but Kroger is my main store mostly because I try to buy only markdown meat and other markdown food and I have to say I'm not a rice and bean person

  5. Youโ€™re right about the Farfalle, it is definitely NOT pronounced โ€far fallโ€. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  6. Omgosh I will definitely try that peanut butter toast! I never thought of putting carrots on peanut butter/raisins sounds delicious! You have really good ideas , thank you for sharing!
    Please say "Hi" to your brother ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š . Hope he's and the rest of your wonderful family is well! ๐Ÿ’—

  7. Good job shopping Target, which is challenging. That soup looked yummy.

  8. You have some good recipies there.
    Good job. You do a good thanks for sharing.โ˜ฎ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฆ‹๐ŸŒป

  9. One thing I LOVE about target is that they have the new Circle program where you get 1% cash back to your target account. Plus, with the app, there are coupons and deals to apply, and it really adds up!

  10. Thanks for the tip on baby carrots, just found your channel. Have subscribed.
