Multi-Store Grocery List 6/25/17
Okay quick story about this multi-store grocery trip, my husband woke up and at 8am decided he was going to go grocery shopping. He was trying to get a jump start on our day. It helped some but he REALLY overspent on the food he bought compared to if we had bought it at Aldi. I was both grateful he did the shopping, but annoyed that he has no clue about price differences. He doesn’t pay attention when the cashier rings up the items. He spent $13 on two spaghetti squash (!!!) because he didn’t realize they were $1.99 PER lb. But he was being helpful, and we are in Baby Step 3 so it’s okay;) So he did that at 8am, and I went around 11am to the other two with Riley.
Local Grocery Store – aka hubby’s food haul
- Spaghetti Squash x 2
- eggs x 2
- chcocolate chips
- Kombucha x 2
- Salsa (Whole 30 compliant! Garlic Medium heat. VERY tasty!)
- Chicken Breasts
- Baking Soda
I chose cherries because they were on sale. I pretty much always do this with fresh produce. Whatever is the most on sale is what comes home with me unless I need something very specific for a particular recipe.
- Two dish washing brushes
- Sweet Potatoes
- Tortillas (for Travis)
- black beans (for Travis)
- A fun money “splurge” to myself – a 2 gallon glass drink dispenser. More on this later! I brew kombucha at home and I got this to do a continuous brew system. The glass dispenser was only $12.99! Score! The cheapest I’ve seen a glass one prior was $25. I’m so excited!
- Draino x 2 – hubby fixed our shower thank goodness!
- Loofas X 2 – one for Travis, one for me
- Acne pads (the round pre-medicated type)
my shoulders have been breaking out since I changed my hair routine and I’m sick of it. These are too harsh for my face, but deal with body acne just fine.
- Shaving Cream
I didn’t have my receipts while I was doing this, but I think that’s everything! We had SUCH a productive day yesterday. For the past two weeks or so, we have been in a slump as far as cleaning and meal prepping. My mom visits soon for three weeks so we really had to get it together. And we did! Essentially the entire day was working on chores, cleaning, and meal prepping. But this morning I got to wake up, have a cup of coffee in a clean home with a fridge full of prepped Whole30 compliant meals. So I’m grateful for that. Maybe I’ll even get my booty in the gym!
