…That’s how I feel after my latest grocery store excursion.
I was riding pretty high on how well I did the last time I went to the grocery store…I guess it was time for a down week.
It just seemed like absolutely nothing was on sale. While standing in line I realized I hadn’t actually bought anything, just ingredients to make old standbys. I ended up grabbing some grind-your-own peanut butter since it was on sale, but I feel like that’s the only thing I bought that I can even put in my lunch. Oh well, better luck next time I suppose.
organic bananas: $0.99/lb – $2.28 (not on sale)
organic chickpeas x 2: $4.00
organic diced tomatoes x 2: $3.98
organic orange juice: $5.29
organic plain yogurt: $0.75
3 lbs organic yellow onions: $2.99
peanut butter: $2.89/lb- $1.18
I suppose this will last me through the week and a grocery bill under $20 isn’t bad. I just feel like I didn’t get much. The bananas will go in my lunch for the rest of the week, along with the peanut butter and the bread I made. I can roast the chickpeas. I can do absolutely anything with the tomatoes. The orange juice will last forever because I take it with my liquid iron. The plain yogurt will be used as a starter for home made yogurt. The onions should last at least a few weeks… I just feel like I’m lacking food I can eat right now.
I guess we’ll see how the week goes.
