We’re continuing to eat out of our freezer this week, thanks to my 3-day cooking session last month! My shopping trips are being spent on the things we need for the week, as well as continuing to stock our freezer, as you’ll see with the hot dogs and sausages bought this week. I’m also planning another (smaller) freezer cooking session for the end of this month, and to help with costs, I’m buying a few things early, like the 6 rolls of ground turkey. Look forward to a post at the beginning of April!

I’m also trying something new with my coffee. In my fitness journey, I’m trying to cut back on a lot of added sugar, and each tablespoon of my favorite flavored creamer has 6 grams of sugar! You’ll see below that I bought plain half and half, and stevia to sweeten it. So far it’s not too bad, but I’ll probably keep buying the flavored kind for John because he prefers that. =) With all that being said, let’s get to my shopping trip!
