I have a (good) problem: Every time I empty something in my freezer, another great sale comes along that makes me fill it again. I took out my last spiral ham to use for all our meals this week, and the Meijer ad showed them on sale for $.97 a pound. I was looking forward to having more freezer space to fill with bread, but who says I can’t do both? =)

Because I’m using a ham this week, the grocery money was abundant. I used this opportunity to stock up on things we needed (and don’t really need). Big Lots is my vice when it comes to snacks; I’m a big fan of protein bars for when I need to reach my daily goal, and Luna bars happen to be my new favorite. They’re only $.70 each at Big Lots, so I kind of tore into the stock and now I’m good for a couple weeks. We have plenty of fruits and vegetables, I promise! They’re just all in the freezer thanks to previous stock-up trips. Here’s what we bought and what we’re eating:
