I ordered from Boxed:

Barilla pasta sauce

Hunts diced tomatoes

I plan on ordering from them once a month, spending $50-75.  This will keep us stocked up on things that I can stock up on.  (I ordered a ton from them with money that I made selling curriculum last week, so that should keep us going.)

I had Robert pick up a few things at HEB when he was there Friday (stuff that I didn’t think to buy and/or stuff that I forgot).

  • 3 dozen eggs
  • 2, 12 packs of HEB Coke Zero
  • 4lbs of ground beef
  • Grape tomatoes (the orange ones are awesome)
  • Onion powder
  • Crest toothpaste
  • Cauliflower
  • Yellow squash (2)
  • Zucchini (2)
  • Chocolate chips (large bag)

Today, we picked up a few things from the little grocery store (Lowes) in Rocksprings.  I won’t be able to go by a store anymore for the next few weeks (because of meeting with my sponsor and counselor after AA).  I don’t want to make a special trip just to buy a few things.  So we are officially stocked for two weeks (actually a bit more than that because we’ve decided to eat in the dining hall more than I originally planned… so the food I bought, especially the meat, will last through the month).

  • 2 packages of chicken thighs (less than $3 each package!)
  • 1 package drumsticks (less than $3)
  • Avocados (4)
  • Flour tortillas (2)
  • Shredded cheese (large bag)
  • Butter (1lb)
  • Julios salsa
  • Sour cream

I made our monthly meal plan based on what we have, so that should save us lots!  We will need things like milk, produce, etc.  I’m working on writing meal planning posts for the month.

Here are pictures of what we have stocked up on (except for the few things I’m still waiting for from Boxed):

I love having a stocked pantry, fridge, and freezer.  Maybe it’s a woman thing, but it just makes me feel content and helps me know we are taken care of.  God has provided all of this!
