Grocery Geek, March 12th

I am doing a bad job lately of being frugal.  I keep trying, one pay check at a time, and failing pretty miserably.  I guess it could be worse, but I have definitely thought about handing over grocery shopping to Robert because I have such a “stocking up” mindset (always have) and can’t seem to get out of that.  Some things I got because they were on sale.  I know, not a good reason…

I shouldn’t have needed to buy much of anything today.  Some produce, Coke Zero/sparkling water, half and half, ice-cream, and bread should have been all I bought.  We have plenty of food!  But it is what it is.

Today I spent $132 which would be just find had I not already stocked up for the month.  It’s definitely enough for at least 2 weeks.  I will have to buy a gallon of milk and some tomatoes (forgot today), and that should be IT.

  • HEB original and polish sausage  (2 for $4)
  • 3 Jimmy Dean natural breakfast sausage (buy 2, get 1 free)
  • Shredded mozzarella and cheddar (2 for $4)
  • 3, 12pks caffeine free Coke Zero

  • Chobani squeeze yogurt
  • Half and half
  • 2 bags frozen chicken strips
  • Smoked salmon (for sushi)

  • 2 bags of gala apples
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 bunch bananas
  • 5 broccoli crowns
  • 3 pack bell peppers
  • 5 avocados
  • 3 bags of petite carrots

  • Maple brown sugar mini wheats
  • 1, 12 pk La Croix
  • 2, 8pks Nestle sparkling water
  • Bag of small bags of doritos and cheetos
  • 2 loaves of whole wheat bread
  • Ivory body wash
  • 3 glade candles (buy 2 get 1 free)

  • 2, 12pks ice cream cups (for Karis’ birthday)
  • 2 dozen eggs

Now I’m off to have a girl night with Karis!  Making a cheesecake (and eating it for dinner), watching a movie, painting our nails, and doing face masks.  Looking forward to it!
