Don’t you hate it when the one thing you want to buy goes out of stock?

Earlier in the week, I saw that GFS had chicken breasts on sale for $1.49 a pound, or $14.99 for a 10-pound bag. It was awesome! But for whatever reason, I decided to go there on Saturday night, the last night of the sale. And of course, they were sold out. Which means I still have the money set aside, so my grocery bill is a lot lower this week. I’ll hold onto it in case chicken goes on sale somewhere else!

Other than that, it’s a pretty standard shopping week! I’m gonna try to take inventory of my freezer this week (!), and see if I maybe need to do a pantry challenge. I have a habit of throwing things in the freezer and forgetting about them, and then buying even more of it later. Anyone else a work in progress when it comes to being organized? Here’s everything I bought this week:
