Had to pick up a few things from the grocery store yesterday. As mentioned in my previous entry, I have found that going for multiple smaller trips helps me stay a little more focused with what I purchase. It's not uncommon for me to go 2-3 times a week. This started when I lived in the city, and was walking with my groceries. I didn't want to carry lots of heavy bags so I would pick things up as I needed them. I kept it going when I moved into the suburbs, and now prefer it with staying home all the time. Going to the grocery store is my main "going out" haha.
5.99 - Half & Half - I drink a giant cup of tea every day, and use half & half. This is non negotiable lol. I purchase the half gallon container, and will usually buy a new one as soon as I open the old one so I have the backup ready to go.
3.85 - 4 Granny Smith apples - for green smoothies
2.50 - bagged spinach - same as above
2.64 - 4 lemons - same as above
.88 plus tax - a pack of Reese's - while waiting in the checkout line, I decided that my green smoothie had lost appeal for the day and since I had the room in my calorie budget, I could make the swap. Bonus, it was on sale!!!
15.94/37.97 MTD (not including $20 for laundry card refill)
This morning, I was very grateful to receive my first dose of the COVID vaccine. In my state, I am eligible due to an underlying condition - specifically obesity. I am close to not being obese anymore, but still counts! I went to a site about 15 minutes away from my house, and was back home an hour and 15 minutes after leaving. Easy peasy. I go back in 3 weeks for my second dose. It made me feel hope. There is light at the end of this dark tunnel. It's not as close as some people/states think it is, but it's there.
