Grocery Stops in Review

About 2 weeks ago, I implemented another No Spend Week and it went fairly well. So well, actually that we were kind of “out of food”.

Ok, not really.

I mean, heck, have you seen my freezers lately? They still have a mish-mash of meats and stuff … there just wasn’t anything that jumped out at us OR that wasn’t frozen solid still.

This is what the main kitchen freezer looks like:
red solo cup: pina colada from TWO weeks ago … a LOT of cans of bacardi mix … a bottle of moonshine, 3 bags of arrowroot powder and then a mish-mash on the shelves!
QUESTION: does anyone know how to get the handle ‘white’ again? It’s yellowed and it may be from trying to clean it with softscrub years ago

And the guest freezer:
Do you see all the empty space?? The bag of walnuts or pecans is going to have to go soon as they’ve been there for awhile.

Lots of food … but nothing ready to go. That, my friends, is what happens when you don’t Meal Plan!

So here’s how the past 2 weeks have played out for shopping:

*the pizzas were to be for Saturday night dinner but Hubby wanted to hit up our favorite Italian restaurant so we did. He had one draft beer, I had sparkling water and wow, the bill was only $43!

So. All in all I would have been fine had I not over thought Saturday’s visit 🙂 I forgot they were heading to a friends graduation party so food wasn’t 100% necessary … I’m always afraid someone is going to starve to death at my house!!

How about you? Grocery shop much this past week or so?

Looking forward to

  1. Have you tried Magic Eraser on the handle?


  2. No, I haven't. Does it need to be the handled one or I wonder if a normal one would work? I'm going to go try it right now! Thanks for the suggestion!
