Instead of studying for my quiz … groceries!

October 11, 2009

444 Express’s post on How the Poor Stay Poor made me laugh because a) my dad’s smoking addiction drives me up the wall — I’m sure that he’s going to get sick on me next, and financially it’s terrible, and b) I was inordinately proud of my grocery basket contents today. 

For under $15, I came home with:
(2) 10-ct boxes of instant oatmeal
(1) 6-ct package of whole wheat English muffins
(1) loaf of 100% whole wheat bread
(1) Jonathan apple
(4) Bartlett pears
(1) 12-ct package of string cheese

I know the comparison of cheap fast foods and expensive wholesome food is made constantly, but I really like that, if you look at it, shop sales, and use coupons, nutritious foods can be had for not too much more than a few fast food meals.  For the record, the string cheese was my splurge at $4.99 for a package of Precious brand cheese + a peelie coupon for $1 off.  I miss peelies!

Oh, and there is a meal combination in that list because I’ve been buying two cans of tuna fish every time they were on sale for the past year. We now have a stockpile of tuna tucked away in every corner of the kitchen. It’s ’bout time I started eating it!  My friend suggested that I dice some apple into the tuna salad, and it tastes delicious!

Now, time to crack the books!

    Thanks for your comment… I guess I thought you got so many comments over here that you didn’t need any more! ;oD Crack the books now… get back to work!

    (Good job on the grocery shopping, btw. Next time buy more than one apple, though.) ;oD I’m full of winks today, eh?

    444: Never too many! Also, I can say that because I have nice commenters. 😉

    I was afraid to get more than one apple because I’ve never had Jonathan apples before, and what if I don’t like them??? 😀
