This was the first weekend in ages I didn’t go to the grocery store. The greatest reason for that was that I’m really trying to stick to my budget. It’s also the first time in forever that I was really willing to commit to items already in the house.
Saturday, I made bread. Sunday was a ham casserole that I added additional vegetables to and created a crumb topping. Today, most likely, I’ll make Lord Woolton Pie with mushroom gravy. This should see us through the week.
I’m looking ahead to next week and with the recent discovery of the sheer volume of vegetables and fruit Canadians were advised to eat I’m heading to Costco to see if I can get some variety while staying in my budget. While I adore potatoes, carrots, broccoli and mushrooms I am hoping that I’m able to extend my vegetable reach a bit more.
I’ve been rather stingy with my three apples so I’m hoping to find a good deal on fruit as well to add to my lunches.
With a budget of $50 but a goal of spending $30 I’m not quite sure if I’ll be able to get all the items on my list:
- peanut butter
- fresh fruit
- fresh vegetables
- toilet paper
I may find myself going to the regular grocery store instead. I know that I’m definitely getting the peanut butter at Costco as no one can beat their price!
