I think I have a shopping problem.
You know it’s bad when you shop at 5 different stores for your grocery trip. But I couldn’t help it- each store had something I couldn’t get anywhere else. I spread out the shopping over a few days, but still it was a lot.
My favorite haul was from Kroger, though. They had a 2-day sale which included those Gogurt dunkers I bought before and Allison loved. The problem is, the regular price is around $4.00 for a box of 4. But this weekend, they were only $1.99! I wish I had more money in the budget to get the limit of 5, but 2 boxes will be good for the next couple weeks.
And as you’ll soon see, I made another Dollar Tree run for three more meal ideas! I’m actually looking forward to these because I put a lot of thought into them and think they’re *reasonably* healthy. Just ignore the fries and we’re good, right? Look forward to a post/video in a couple weeks; but for now, check out my first and second editions to hold you over!
