I did my grocery shopping yesterday....found some amazing deals. I am loving being able to get back into the swing of really saving with a purpose. One of the ways I am able to always cut back on costs is using cash. Everyone has their methods...what works for them. But for me CASH is KING.....as Dave Ramsey would say.
So here are just a few of my great finds....and how I plan on taking advantage of these sales into meals.
BANANAS .37 cents a pound
*I picked up 2 bunches (5 pounds) for $1.92. As they turn brown I will either turn them into some paleo muffins....but more than likely I will cut them into pieces and freeze them to use in smoothies. One of my daughters favorite mid day snack is to blend up some bananas and strawberries a scoop of collagen, water and blend!
CABBAGE .47 cents per pound
SWEET ONIONS .99 cents a pound
ZUCCHINI $1.29 per pound
SWEET POTATOES .99 cents a pound
*This is the most amazing potato (in my opinion)....it can be sweet but I have fallen in love with roasting them with spices that really make your mouth burst with flavor. I have some green chili in my freezer from New Mexico (thank you Mom and Dad!!!)....and I plan on dicing the potatoes with the onions, zucchini, green chili toss it all with olive oil, salt, garlic....put into the oven on broil for however long it takes to get that nice dark brown to all sides. Yum!!
JONAGOLD APPLES .99 cents a pound
* I cut up an apple a day for my daughter (she has braces) so she can snack on them during lessons....but I also will chop up some apple with the cabbage and make a simple slaw....with those two items, salt, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, a pinch of cayenne, garlic....bam!
EB EGGS $1.77
*My family loves loves loves eggs....they are so versatile. My hubby will love having some fried up eggs with the roasted veggies from above.
CANNED COCONUT MILK $1.99 (Both United and Natural Grocers had this on sale!)
Well that is all I have time for on this Thursday.....these sales are good til next Tuesday (Feb. 2). Open up your grocery mailers and see how you can plan your meals around the sales. You might discover just how creative you can become as well as save LOTS of money!
Tomorrow I will talk a bit more about food....what my thoughts are on organic....grass fed.....how I shop and what I do to eat as clean and wholesome as I can and still save money.
Have a glorious Thrifty day! And if you have any thrifty thoughts PLEASE share....I always love saving a buck :).....Leave comments below and teach me any of your tricks!
Blessings and hugs always,
BOOK OF THE DAY: I have had this little book for YEARS now! I love it. These simple ingredients have saved me soooo much money with cleaning supplies....hair products....bath products....and so much more!
MOVEMENT OF THE DAY:
Today....my regular get up....push-ups....kickbacks...stretch.....
Once I got on the mini trampoline (finished rosary and started a podcast with Joyce Meyer).....I decided I wanted to do something different every minute... I set a timer to go off every minute....
from there I rotated every minute for 20 minutes total from:
mini trampoline (with weighted vest.....you can put a few books in a backpack)
deep squat with medicine ball overhead throw
step ups with 10# weights
up right rows with 10#
knee up twists with medicine ball (standing lift knee to opposite elbow, twist, change to other side)
bicep curls with squats 10#
*basically I just kept moving from anything each minute....it didn't matter the sequence...
*Ended with deep mat stretching...done!
Yesterday evening went for a fabulous walk with hubby (about 30-40 minutes)
***Today....I will be seeing my wonderful functional doc to do this crazy vibrating machine....its fun! And I will be moving wood flooring from one room to the next.....soooo tomorrow I for see as a much lower key day!
