Since I just went grocery shopping today, I thought that this post would be very fitting. Also, it’ll give you a glimpse into what I eat. A recipe blog post will come soon.
I live near Stop & Shop, which is excellent because when I lived at home we also lived near a Stop & Shop so I have a card where I can get the posted discounts. I always prepare myself by looking at the weekly circular. Do not underestimate the weekly circular. I always look for deals on vegetables because I love my veggies, but they are too expensive and unless there’s a discount I won’t buy them fresh. Then I look for discounts on fruits as well. These are hard to come by because I don’t like all fruit and sometimes buying them already sliced and on a platter is better and less time consuming. I check to see what condiments I need to refill and if there are deals on those. Condiments are so not cheap, but if I can get 2 for $5, I’ll grab them up. Last is snacks and staples like rice and pasta. Sometimes there are deals on these, but sometimes I’m assed out.
After all of that here is what a typical grocery list looks like:
Fruit platter or whole fruit
Lemon and lime juice
Chicken breasts (thinly sliced)
Cookies or Cookie Dough
Chips (if baby wants)
