I was supposed to post this yesterday but time got away from me and then I got tired and wanted to watch Moonlighting.
I'm proud of my menu this week and of how little money I spent at the store. :)
I found a new way of shopping, I buy all the ingredients for dinners first then the extra stuff. I'm surprised at how little I end up spending compared to going through the grocery store in a systematic order. Or shopping when I'm hungry.
Always a plus!
