NSD and Groceries

January 3rd, 2012 at 05:49 am

Jan 1st was a no spend day, even though I was not working the gate.

Yesterday I went grocery shopping and spent $96.00. That total includes a tube of super glue for my son which cost right at 3.00. When I got to the gate I realized that I forgot to get vegetable oil. Hopefully I can make it without it. I don't see being able to leave the gate for another month or so and if I ask someone to bring it they won't accept the money for it. I do have some left, I'll have to use it sparingly.

I bought the larger packs of meat and seperated them into smaller 1 to 2 portion sizes. I used to this when my children were at home. I think it saves money. I even used to make my own laundry soap back then.

I plan to make a loaf of bread in a bit and maybe even some yeast rolls. I hope they turn out well if I watch the temp on the milk.

Have a great day everyone!

    It sounds like you and I do a lot of the same things. I used to make our laundry soap, bread, granola, etc. but now that it's just me and a cat, I don't do much of that stuff but I still do things like buying the larger packages of meat and separating them into portion sized packages and such. As a Type 1.5 pump wearing diabetic, bread isn't in my diet much at all anymore but I would love to make some rolls! I miss baking. Enjoy that for me, would you? Smile

    Hi Denise. I've always bought the bigger packages of meat for less per pound. I don't eat alot of bread but do like it occasionally. The homemade version doesnt last as long as the store bought that is laden with preservatives so I slice it and freeze it and take it out as I want and let it thaw. It's been awhile since I've made any but for sure it has to be better for you than the bread you buy in a store!

    I hate it when I forget something and I'm on a weekly shopping schedule!

    Maybe you can make it through with butter and not much frying!

    It's frustrating to forget something, isn't it? Hope you can make do until you can get some.

    I think I'll be allright. I mainly use it for frying eggs and french fries and sauteeing onions etc but I do have olive oil and I can scramble eggs instead. I'll miss my french fries though, sometimes that's all I have for dinner. I'm sure I'll make it fine.
