We managed to make it through last week with just a quick trip to the store to pick up milk, broccoli and loss leaders! I’m pretty proud of myself, since we haven’t done a regular weekly grocery shopping trip since right before we left for Wisconsin…almost a month ago!
But all good things must come to an end and I am tired of eating from the pantry. Could we continue doing it for awhile longer? Yes, I know we could. But we’re getting sick of frozen or canned fruits and vegetables. So my goal this week was to plan meals that only required me to shop for produce, dairy, meat, and things that were already on my list because we’d run out of them.
Now to find time to shop for them! Chad’s van is still at the mechanic so he’s still using my car for work. And I’m not too keen on loading the kids in the uppababy vista (stroller) and hiking through the snow, even though Dillons is only half a block away. I’ll probably end up taking the car some night after Chad gets home from work. I can’t wait to be a two-car family again and I have new-found respect for those who live with just one vehicle all the time!
