For as long as I can remember, I have posted about my shopping trips on Tuesday mornings here on this little old blog. I shop on Mondays as a general rule, and write up the post on Monday nights or early Tuesday mornings.
Last night I was cuddling with a feverish baby and saw an ad for the new reality weight loss show, Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition (mind you, this is the first television I have watched since I watched my segment on the View…almost 4 weeks ago!)…and I was intrigued. When I was waiting for my show to tape for The View, I ran into Chris Powell in the dressing room area backstage. We quickly got to talking about food, healthy food, costs of healthy food, weight loss, etc. I was completely blown away by his passion and his approach to weight loss and how it’s so drastically different from another show that will go unnamed here.
I wanted to see one of his shows to get a full understanding…so I stayed up late watching EM:WLE and it didn’t let me down. His approach is way better and way healthier than the other unnamed show. I love that it doesn’t have a competition factor, and that relationships aren’t broken/damaged by voting off, etc.
Anywho…I got so sidetracked and completely forgot to write up about my grocery trip.
Which turns out was very, very, very uneventful!
There’s nothing terribly exciting about this trip. Got 2 packs of TP, as our stockpile is running low. And a few special (and expensive) snacks for Tyler. That’s about it!
- Sister Schubert’s rolls – Used free item coupon, have no recollection of where it came from…found it cleaning out my desk
Total spent at Kroger: $78.97
Total for the month: $208.60 + $20 for the berries + $78.97 = $307.57 Just barely over my $75/week budget for June!
