I went to the store yesterday. This whole week has just been kinda screwy. Normally I go over the weekend, but I’d planned on being in Elko where there are several big chain grocery stores. Didn’t happen, so I went to our local store. Who knew that Christmas week just doesn’t have good grocery sales? It seemed like nothing was on sale. So I just bought what was, and we’ll go again because the flier for this week is chock full of good deals.
- bag of salad, 99 cents
- two bags shredded motzerella cheese, 3.00
- five pound of apples, 4.45
- bunch bananas, 2.37
- 12 huge muffins, 5.00 (I know…I know! This is what happens when I don’t have a list.)
- two white onions, .89
- two avocados, 1.00
- sour cream, .89
- cottage cheese, 1.25
- yogurt, 1.80
- 1 loaf bread (NO bread was on sale, so I just got enough to get by) 1.89
Meh. Not my best week. And I’ll have to go back and shop more because I didn’t have a cohesive list. I’m going to have to do better than this to stick with our goal.
I can update our menu though to include chilequillas tonight and homemade pizza on New Years Day.
More Grocery Round-up here.
I sent Kevin to the store again. I really need to learn my lesson on that. He went over, and spent $123. Our goal is $100 per week. To be fair, he did buy stuff for Christmas dinner and baking. But still–I gave him a list! Oh well, it’s still our practice month. And we have still spent about half what we normally would in a month on food so far. We’ll start taking more care with monitoring our grocery spending in January. (More grocery round up here.)
We may have no choice.
I’m not going to go into details. But the ominous meeting I mentioned yesterday had a twist, and it really wasn’t fantastic. Things are still being worked out, but my job just became one that is barely tolerable to me.
My plan is just to do the very best job I can until this is all worked out. I’m trying to see the bright side, but it’s not easy. And usually, I’m all about the bright side. Right now things are just feeling a little dark. My natural reaction to that is to make changes as fast as I can manage. Big ones. Unfortunately, I’m not in a position to do that as quickly as my brain would like.
More later, if I feel like I can. In the mean time, positive vibes are very welcome.
