She mentioned thst she went to the grocery store and only spent $50.00 this intrigued me and became a goal of mine… i mean coukd I do that and what woukd I be abke to get for $50.00?

Well it takes planning, so I sat down and made out a weekly menu

  • Monday- Traveling home from vacation
  • Tuesday- French Onion Soup casserole
  • Wednesday- Grilled pizza ans salad
  • Thursday- left overs
  • Friday- girls night out
  • Saturday- knows pasta sides or something from freezer
  • Sunday- chicken zucchini and mashed potatoes

I made out my list and headed to Kroger

I only put items thst were on my list in my buggy until I got to thr aisle with the mayo and realized I needed some mayo so I added it at thr bottom of my list under additional items, as I placed items in my buggy I made note of the prices

When I went to check out I put all the items that were on my list on the register 1st at the end of my list I was at $34.00 woah I did it i purchased enough groceries to feed my family for 6 days

Then the additional items brought my total up to $58.00

Under $60.00 WOW I was so excited and said I will be shopping like this from now on… now I know it won’t always be under $60.00 but I am extremely proud of this accomplishment!!! (I bought ice cream for a treat to celebrate)

Here is my grocery haul
