Every Day

August 4: Low Spend Grocery Month Challenge

We had a very busy day of appointments and grocery shopping. We were up and out very early this morning to make the trip to the next town to see our doctors. We spent a bit of the morning there. I am happy to report that since my hernia surgery a year and 8 months ago, I have managed with my diet to stay off of 4 prescription pills that I had been taking daily for years. The doctor was so happy with my blood work. I had been released to my primary from my specialist 8 months ago. They said keep up the good work. We don’t want to see you again for a year. You can bet I am not going back on any of those pills. It is amazing what you can accomplish when you don’t eat sugar or carbs 99.9% of the time. It is also amazing how good I feel for an “old lady”.

Before I went out, I cooked up some eggs with cheese for breakfast.


Since we were in the town that Target is in, Hubby said he would take me there to use the $10. gift certificate so that I don’t have to keep track of it anymore. I went in planning on buying some meat with it. They had beautiful looking boneless chicken breasts for $ 1.99 a lb. So I purchased this large package. 

As you can see, after the gift certificate, I paid $ .65 out of pocket. So that left me $ 249.35 in my grocery budget for this month.

Tomorrow, I will food saver this and a large piece of salmon that I also purchased today. Then I will try to fit it all in the freezers. I will include my other grocery shopping trip in my post tommorow. I am just too worn out today. 

Tonight, I cooked linguine with spaghetti sauce and meatballs for Hubby. I put mine on riced garlic and herb cauliflower. Mine is pictured.  

Neither one of us wanted garlic bread so I didn’t make it.

I hope you have a wonderful evening. I am off to go sit outside with Hubby. It is the coolest weather we have had in over a month. We have our windows open airing out the house. It feels so good!
