What I Spent

branches reflected in a lake.

I spent:

  • $24 at Lidl
  • $62 at Aldi
  • $19 on a Hungry Harvest box

So, $105 for me.

What We Ate


Some leftover pulled pork in buns. I mixed my pork with some salsa verde and added some sliced avocado on top, and that made a very good sandwich!


I made baked ziti and ooh, I was so excited that the sun was still up when I finished cooking dinner!

I used some of my $0.99 clearance organic chicken from Safeway to make some chicken fingers. I was awfully low on produce that night so we just had bowls of strawberries with our chicken.

I made a pot of broccoli-noodle soup, which we ate with some sourdough bread from Aldi.


An eat-up-the-leftovers night. 🙂

I made some burgers on the new-to-me grill that my dad brought over for me!

cheeseburgers on grill.

We had potato cubes and sauteed broccoli on the side.


The girls both have plans tonight, so I’m on my own. Hmm. I could make an egg and veggie skillet.

Orrrr I could treat myself to a solo meal out with a gift card. Decisions, decisions!

What did you have for dinner this week?

needed new sheets so we went to Sams club where I rarely shop, in fact gonna let our membership lapse next month.BUT while there I always pick up the 5 dollar chicken. We had chicken pieces and asparagus and homemade tabooli and roasted red potatoes for supper and I have enough left over to make a pot of chicken and noodles for two more meals , all out of one chicken!

Picked up a large bag of organic brussels sprouts while there, for just $4.00.

But over all Sams does not save me any money, so.. out it goes.

We also ate from the freezer all week.. it is soo full I need to make some space, so an easy week of meals and low grocery bill.

WIS: $33 at the farm stand, $174 at Stop & Shop, and $389 at BJs makes $596. Because I had a birthday request that was best purchased at BJs and a two day Nor'Easter blow through, I did my biggest shop of the week there. And, I picked up a few things they were out of stock on two weeks ago when I did my regular, monthly trip.

WWE: Tacos; steaks, braised potatoes, and broccoli for the birthday dinner; squid ink pasta with shrimp; all over the place, including some free dinners out; & pork roast, biscuits, and carrots.
