Some great deals. And might I 'thank you' for my husband!! He loves it when consumers buy Kimberly Clark, it keeps him in a job! When I buy diapers however I usually buy Pampers and it kills him! But they are a bit cheaper and they get the job done! As for other paper stuff such as dinner napkins, toilet paper, kleenex, wipes, stuff like that we normally get from his work so I don't buy a whole lot of it. And that's perfect considering how many girls I have! I'm sure you've guessed by now where he works!

Thanks so much for your many prayers for baby Vance. It means a lot to us.
