Week 1 Update
I’ve done a pretty good job at not spending money this first week of the January No Spend Challenge! I knew my weak area would be staying away from the little grocery that’s just out my back door. I’ve been known to head over there three times in one day. It’s just too convenient sometimes. This week, I only went ONCE! And all I bought was $1.55 bag of frozen peas so we could make fried rice. Success!
During the week I also bought 3 dozen farm fresh eggs – $6.00 – from the local feed store. They are so pretty! And they are so much healthier than commercial eggs.
Finally, this morning I had to buy groceries. We are out of most fresh produce and I’m not willing to compromise health by not buying fresh fruit and veggies. I had intended to go to Aldi, but I got there an hour before they opened. Seriously? I’m not a morning person! How did that happen??
Since Aldi is right next to Walmart, and I needed to return something anyhow, I went over to Walmart. Here’s an example of how price-matching can save you money.
9 grapefruit – Walmart price = .84 ea / price match = .29 ea
2 pineapples – Walmart price = 2.98 ea / price match = .99 ea
3 avocados – Walmart price = 1.48
