January Challenge To Save Money Post 3

I learned something today..... When you don't eat out - You run out of the basics more quickly -ie: Milk, and bread.... This morning - I did a Target run.... Usually when I go - I take a circular route - through the shoes... to the book section... to the DVDs... and then to the food... Many times along my journey - I would randomly throw books or movies into my basket.... I made the decision when I walked in the door - that I knew what I needed... and that is all I'm going to get...
Bread - $1.99, Brown paper lunch bags (I can't get my kids to use lunch boxes) $1.02 (on sale I bought 2 packs of 100. Target brand Sweet n low - on sale - bought 2 boxes (1/2 the price as the brand name product and tastes the same), 1 gallon of milk - 1/2 the price than Albertson's... Now I did make a purchase that I did not intend to make - Frozen fruit... I'll tell you why on my next post.

Last night - was the last night to have "kid favorites" - yummy - Cheese burgers - I personally like barbeque sauce on mine... How do you eat yours?

Tonight it's Grilled pork chops, rice, green beans and apple sauce..


  1. I love groceries at Target! My favorite grocery store is still HEB. Target may be my second choice, though!

  2. You're doing good! Those extra things that get thrown in really add up - I'm guilty of that too.

  3. Good job on going in for only what you needed. That was prob one of the hardest for me to get into a routine of doing! GOOD JOB!!

  4. YUM!!!! Tater Tots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  5. I like pepper jack cheese with honey mustard...but you can't really make a bad cheeseburger! :)

    I love tater tots too! Yummmmmm!

    Great job getting through the store with just one extra item! Way to go!

    My way of cutting down on extras is living in a 5th wheel! LOL
