My New Grocery Game

Friends.  I have a lot of food.
And when I say a lot.
I mean, a LOT.
I’m stocked.  Could I last a year, honestly, I don’t know.
I’d prefer not to find out.
This isn’t to say that I’m not adding, but I’m not really building a stockpile I’m controlling a stockpile at this point.

So, what to do with that grocery budget?

Buy produce.

So, that’s what my grocery game has been lately.  Finding fruits and veggies that keep us under budget and happy.  I must admit that for a long time it was eating cheap, but it’s starting to be eating well (and eating cheap, who am I kidding, my husband is still a teacher!).

I’m shopping at trader joe’s.

We just got a new Whole Foods type market in a city not far away.  I went there today.  It was pretty interesting.

The produce drawers tend to be pretty full these days, and that makes me pretty happy.

    I’m very jealous, as I could easily spend my entire budget on produce. The Farmer’s Market just opened here, we’re going tomorrow to see how the prices are.

    Hopefully I’ll get my stockpile built up good this coming year. We’ll see.

    That’s great Hilary! I love Trader Joe’s. Good place to step up quality without killing the budget. Did you go to the new Sprouts? My parents got a flyer with some coupons for the opening and I want to go check it out too and see if it would be worth the drive.
