What $11.67 Looks Like

So my budget got a little smaller over the weekend. And just as I’m sitting down to lunch, the phone rings. It’s my Mom, asking me if I want to run to the grocery store with her. I don’t have much money, and I won’t know much on what I need until after I go to the food bank on Tuesday. But I said sure, why not?

This is what I picked up while we were there:

36

I know, it doesn’t look like much. Here’s a breakdown:

1 two-pack discount blueberries 0.99
1 pack potatoes 0.49
2 packs bananas 0.49 each
1 organic lemonade 1.99
2 almond milks 2.99 each
Pack of noodles 0.98

And there you have it. Total of 11.67 (with tax)

Everything was on sale. Tomorrow night we’ll be having tofu sesame noodles made with that pack of noodles above. One night this week we’re having mashed potatoes with gravy and some Gardein “chicken” that I have in the freezer. Blueberries for snacks and lunches, bananas for snacks and smoothies. And I still have roughly $50 left in the budget for this week!
