Grocery Haul {June 2, 2014}

Posted June 3, 2014 in groceries, grocery haul, healthy food and 6 more

It's been nearly two weeks since I got groceries! I had made a few too many trips to our new Hy-Vee and my fridge and cupboards were overflowing with food, so I had to take a little break from my new fave store.

But when I was finally out of some staples and totally low on fresh produce, I had to head to Hy-Vee!

Grocery Haul + Weekly Meal Plan {creating a grocery budget)

Posted September 4, 2014 in grocery shopping, grocery haul, meal planning and 5 more

My last grocery haul was the first one with the BF! 

Now that the BF and I have lived together for about two months, we've decided to get more organized with our finances/budgeting.

Neither of us have ever had a budget for food before, but money has been a little tighter for both of us since we moved in together. So we're tracking our spending (especially on groceries and eating out) in September, and in October we'll decide where we can tighten things up. I'll let you know how we do!

Over the weekend, we bought groceries at Hy-Vee, the farmer's market and Target. 

Here's what we bought...

Grocery Haul {Nov. 2} + Meal Planning

Posted November 6, 2014 in grocery haul, groceries, healthy eating and 8 more

For the past two months, the BF and I have been keeping track of our grocery spending in an attempt to create some kind of food budget.

Last month, we spent over $500 on groceries!! (details here) We were both pretty appalled by our spending, so we tried to keep ourselves in check during October.

Our spending...

Grocery total = $427.62

Eating out/Going out total = about $300 (we paid in cash and didn't keep receipts at a few places)

Posted December 16, 2014 in grocery haul, healthy eating, healthy cooking and 9 more

I'm super late on posting this month's grocery haul (the BF and I went shopping on Dec. 6)! I usually post our grocery haul early in the month to share our spending from the previous month. (Read about our October spending and November's grocery haul here).

I don't know what happened. This month is just flying by!

But I still want to share our grocery haul and meal planning because we've been making some delicious meals this month! 

But first, here's our spending..

Grocery Haul + Meal Plan {Week of Feb. 9-15}

Posted February 12, 2015 in grocery haul, meal planning, healthy eating and 5 more

I haven't posted a grocery haul in a long time because I spent most of January on my elimination diet, and grocery shopping wasn't that fun. Most of my grocery hauls were produce, seeds, rice and rice milk (ick!).

But my elimination diet is over! (I'll post a recap soon) I'm back to eating like my old self (although I haven't reintroduced coffee and I've only had sugar for the first time this week. My sugar was in the form of Justin's Vanilla Almond Butter. To. Die. For.)

So I thought I would share my recent grocery haul and meal plan! I haven't kept track of our grocery spending for a few months. I got off track during the holidays. But I'll get back to it this month and share our grocery budget for February early in March.
