$85 Weekly Shopping and Menu 9-23-19

I am super pumped about the cool things I scored this week!

I visited our local grocery outlet to pick up some pork chops I had ordered. We typically shop there on Tuesdays; partially because that’s when they get new stock, and partially because it’s just the best day.

But then I found a bunch of their new items, and kept buying… and buying… until suddenly I was at the register spending just under $30.00. I really don’t know what happened, I swear!

Then we got home and tried putting everything in the freezer… and that’s when I realized I had a problem. A hoarding problem. So with Wednesday being a day off for Allison, I decided to tackle the freezers and take inventory.

Luckily it didn’t take too long, but look at this list. I had 16 bags of frozen veggies that I just kept loading up on when they were on sale.

Then I found a package of pumpkin ravioli that I got marked down like… last year. So I’m using it this week, finally!

By the way, I’ve been doing a lot on Instagram lately- especially my Stories. Just about every night I’ve been showing what I’m making for dinner, so you can actually see what all of this looks like. Make sure you follow me and check my stories daily, because I usually don’t post my meal pictures here!
