I've posted a couple random shots of my groceries before, but I thought it may be interesting to try to post more of my trips.
Hubby and I are working on budgeting better so we can start to save for a house. According to him, we had $37 for groceries for the rest of February, as of yesterday (and before these shopping trips)…yikes! I've lived on less before, so we should be ok.
After work, my first stop was Great Harvest Bread Company, where I snagged this loaf of Dakota. I'm hoping to incorporate this bread into lots of meals to help us make it through the month, especially since it's a good source of whole grains and seeds (at least I think it is?).
After GHBC, I hit up Trader Joe's to get some ingredients for a couple meals I'm semi-planning. I got some red kidney beans, some garbanzo beans, the smallest/cheapest container of grated parmesan I could find (they are priced by weight and come in different sizes), and a bottle of 3-Buck-Chuck. I suppose it seems foolish to get wine on a tight budget, but I'm planning a couple pasta meals using the wine, which would make it more affordable spread out over the various meals.
After Trader Joe's, I went home and then Hubby and I went out again to hit up Target. He wanted to shop for a new shower curtain (guess I may have inspired him with the new one I got?), and I wanted to help him pick one out. We were torn between a blue-greenish-stripey one and a black and white bold-striped one. We couldn't decide, so we didn't get either and are going to think on it some more.
After Target, We went to Harris Teeter and got some bacon (for dinner and another meal I'm considering making) and some tater tots. I quickly checked the label on the tater tots as we were walking over to the checkout and was pleased to see 0g trans fat. They must have re-done their recipe because I could swear the last time I checked the label, there was more like 1.5g trans fat. Good for them!
Please excuse the plastic bags in the photos…this was taken post dinner, and I had already put the bacon and tater tots up and was too tired to take them back out for the photo.
Guess I'd better get meal planning!
