Week #3 Grocery Challenge

August 22nd, 2020 at 09:56 pm

For the week of 8/16 - 8/23 I spent $34.99 I needed fresh produce mostly, as well as bread and a few other things. I’m posting a day early as I know I won’t be shopping again until next week.

Recap so far:
Week 1: $102.97 (stock up)
Week 2: $ 0
Week 3: $34.99
Total so far is $137.96 which leaves me $40.25 for the rest of the month to make my goal of spending $20 less for groceries then I spent in July.

The past week was quiet, but the weather was beautiful! We actually had a few great days in a row with lower heat and humidity, and I was able to get outside to walk. It felt rejuvenating to soak up some sun and get some fresh air. My best friend and I went for a drive to a state park with beautiful surroundings and spent a few hours walking and talking. Since we went during the week there were only a few other people around and it was easy to stay socially distant. Then we stopped for some take out lunch. It felt like a little piece of normal.

I somehow managed to strain my back pretty good so I’ve been hobbling around the past couple of days and using a heating pad. It's been hard to get comfortable to sleep so I’m really tired too. It does feel a bit better today though so I’m hoping for a decent night's sleep tonight and less pain tomorrow!

    I am doing much better this August than last July. I am not depriving us of fresh farm stand corn, however. So delicious!

    Sorry you strained your back! I managed to sleep wrong last night and am struggling with lower back and hip pain.

    Sorry about your back. Hope you are on the mend.

    Good job on the groceries. I spent some time last week looking at sites that you can email companies for coupons and they will mail them to you. Here is one that seems to have a lot if you like coupons:
