well, here we are – this is the last entry for our regular tuesday updates in the great may grocery challenge series.
reminder: on thursday, i will share the month’s final grocery bill. [my last may grocery store outing will happen today so that i have time to review my receipts and think about what i want to say about this project!].
here are the thoughts from this past week, may 22-28:
~ stupendous: i managed to go three whole days (monday, tuesday, wednesday, last week) without setting foot in a grocery store – that has gotta be close to a personal record.
~ silly: there is enough cereal in my cupboard to sink a ship. and the cereal sales are still going strong this week at all area food stores. it’s irksome that i do not need any more cereal because i would love to take advantage of deals such as this one at food basics:
~ clueless: i honestly have no clue if i have spent $200 or $600 on groceries, this month. i am going to be just as surprised as you when i tally up how much money has been spent. i am really excited to see the total!
~ craving: here is the eclectic request list that i
gave emailed dad-the-scout for his trip on thursday to the market:
- a choco chip muffin
- skim milk cheese
- white button mushrooms
- a head of lettuce (**this last one was simply for the laughs: dad as lettuce supplier has become the joke of this project!*)
~ focussed: this week’s vehicular voyage saw me head up to beechwood zehrs:
guess what SALE item i was searching out?!…
i stocked up with enough lettuce to see me through the end of the month. next time i buy rabbit food, it will be anywhere at any price (likely food basics: even at regular prices, they are still the cheapest).
~ sweet!: nicole (unknowingly) contributed to the cause!
~ icky: i bought a tin of water chestnuts and a tin of baby corn as accoutrements for salads. well, one serving of each, then my taste buds turned themselves off. let me tell you, you get a lot of water chestnuts and baby corn in those little tins…
any thoughts from your own may grocery purchases? i never resorted to kraft dinner!
today is a special day – it is dearest mom‘s birthday! we marked this celebration date on sunday with two fun outings – recap tomorrow!
mom: you are one of the sweetest, kindest, gentlest ladies (yet you still possess spunk and gumption) on this earth. you are my favourite shopping partner, confidante, and i love you to pieces. enjoy a most wonderful day today (perfect timing that you are in TO to see little e and cutie c!) and all the best in the coming year. xoxo!
