Sharing is caring!

Posting a day early because tomorrow I’m highlighting my mini freezer cooking session! This week starts my $30 shopping trips for a short while, because we’ve lost our income temporarily. We have a LOT of meals in the freezer (Seriously, I just looked in it and it’s like filled to the top!), and our pantry is very well-stocked, so my goal is to purchase only fresh produce and weekly essentials like milk/eggs, other essentials like emergency toiletries, and maybe even doing a little stocking up if I have a couple dollars left over. We’ve got a light week shopping-wise this week, which is great; let’s see what I got!
