This week for Project:Food Budget is kind of an anomaly: I didn’t go grocery shopping. I did set foot in Giant Eagle, but just to buy a Father’s Day card and I thought about picking up a Rogue X Voodoo Donuts collab beer, but I talked myself out of that.
I’m sure you want to know how in the wide world I didn’t spend any money at the store all week.
Well I still had things from last week and I didn’t want them to go bad if I purchased new items. So I was trying to finish off that. Also, my father moved back into his house (all independent – I’m so proud) and I stayed with him for a few days to make sure everything was okay.
So this is a rather underwhelming post.
I guess we should include that I did go to lunch at Chipotle when I really didn’t need to, so let’s add that bill to the total. $9.08 for a burrito bowl and chips that I ate for lunch and dinner on Friday.
That’s about all she wrote, so I’m not going to drag it out. I’m proud that instead of wasting items, I used up what I could when I could and I’ll be stocking fresh today or tomorrow.
