Hey February, I'm still going strong with my NY resolutions. The watching my spending in all areas of my life is going well. No shopping, nada, zilch, zip.
I've organized my small record collection, kept track of my groceries like never in the history of this family, stayed true blue vegan (which is just life now and not any kind of accomplishment, but still) and stayed out of everyone's business that I have no business in and that means everyone...except me. So basically I'm on a 31 day roll.
Total between the .99 store and Trader Joe's, $31.36. That fork is laying there because it was windy here Saturday (incaseyouwerewondering.)
This week I'm planning on making a vegan lasagna and navy bean soup. Also, I'll be using up the sauerkraut and rye bread in all ways possible. The .99 Store had those dark chocolate bars but this time with mint which is Larry's favorite way to eat chocolate. They get an A+. We've both fallen for that sparkling water from France. I hope they keep stocking it. I also threw in a package of vegetable spring rolls. They are completely vegan and I'll report back to any fellow .99 shoppers how they taste. Paired with some rice and a salad they'll be a lazy dinner.
I strolled through the farmers market on Saturday morning and couldn't bring myself to pay $4 for a head of lettuce. We still have some fresh veggies that need eaten so maybe next week? We'll see. Right now my main focus is on saving money and I feel the veggies I'm getting at the .99 store are healthy and inexpensive.
I do get weak inside Trader Joe's. They have so many beautiful foods to choose from. I'm currently having an affair with the Ezekiel Sprouted Cinnamon bread. I bought their Ginger Pear Tea which I didn't need but that didn't stop me. Please note that this will be 2 weeks in a row without any chips.
