Grocery Geek Part 1

February 26, 2017 by Courtney


It has been a long day.  It started out nice and peaceful, then the rest of the day happened.  Drove 1 1/2 hours to town, lunch with mom and kids (which was nice), Lego Batman movie, drove home, put away groceries.  All without Robert (because he is working this weekend).  I’m worn out!  Luckily I will be able to sleep in tomorrow, so I’m enjoying some peace and quiet right now before I go to bed.

On another note, I definitely spent way more than I usually do for groceries tonight!  I think it was because I had the kids with me.  I usually shop by myself so I’m not used to having to deal with them… fighting, messing around, being in people’s way, asking for everything, etc.  I felt anxious through the whole store.

I also spent some of our income tax refund on and stocking up again.

So between today’s shopping trip and my online grocery shopping I won’t have to buy much in the month of March.  Mostly produce and dairy products!

Here’s my haul from today:




  • 3 dozen eggs
  • 3 pounds butter
  • Chobani yogurt tubes
  • Fage Greek yogurt (as a starter for homemade yogurt)
  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • Mild white fish (can’t remember the kind)
  • Whole chicken
  • Beef chuck roast
  • Bag of frozen chicken breast
  • 2 packages carnitas
  • 12 oz bacon


  • 2 gallons of milk (one for yogurt)
  • 2 packages dino nuggets
  • 3 packages deli meat
  • 1 package hot dogs


  • Half and half
  • Egg whites
  • Sour cream
  • Cottage cheese
  • Provolone sliced cheese
  • Mild cheddar shredded cheese
  • Gouda block
  • Monterey jack block
  • Street taco tortillas
  • String cheese


  • Coleslaw
  • Caulibits
  • Spring mix
  • Whole wheat hot dog buns
  • Whole wheat bread
  • Bananas
  • Avocados
  • Cucumbers
  • Bell peppers


  • Grapes
  • Celery
  • Roma tomatoes
  • Lots of carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Mandarin oranges
  • Jalapeños
  • Yellow squash
  • Zucchini


  • La Croix
  • HEB sparkling water
  • Coke Zero
  • Little Debbie spring snacks
  • Glade candles

Tomorrow I will be doing a lot of prep for the week with what I bought today.

I plan to also write about doing a pantry month for the month of March as soon as I receive my and orders!
