You guys shoulda warned me! The cost of groceries, are you kidding me?
It's been probably a month since I actually bought groceries, and I was needing stuff like toilet paper, paper towel, plus some food that I thought I might eat. AND so after being up for awhile this morning, I took off to town. It was before seven thirty and not too many people were shopping, it was cooler from the night's rain, it was now or never.

I CANNOT believe the cost of groceries. I'm making 60% of my salary but I spent money like I'm making 100%.

Now, the thing is, I hope I eat some of these things I bought that looked good to me. I still bought Ensure, sometimes that is all I can do, but it is so expensive even. So, I need to try to EAT real food.
I got lots of frozen veggies and stuff that won't go bad, but I did buy bananas and strawberries. I'm not suppose to eat anything I can't peel, but I had to have those berries, they looked yummy.
So, I got that done, got it all hauled in and all put away and now I'm beat, but still it feels good to have gotten that done. BUT MAN! I need to stay out of town. Spent too much MONEY!

Hi Sara, I knew you were busy, getting down to the wire now. It is good to see you and thanks for letting me know you came by.

strawberries have the highest pesticide use of any fruit so please try to buy organic if you can...I assume that's what the peel is about but you can't peel a strawberry, I tried with UC!

I also have to drink Ensure and then waste half of it because I can't drink a whole one....sheesh, yes the cost is way too much and it's for people who are sick so why??

you sure are an early bird. I am embarrassed to say I wake up at 11:30am right now...sigh....

We used to freeze ensure for my dad. He was an ice cream junkie and he liked it that way.

It is expensive. As is everything else these days.

I've had to start planning and not buying anything unless it's on my list. Just can't afford those little extras anymore.

Hey Linda, yep, that's why they say not to eat anything not peeled. But I had to have those berries! I'm a little hard headed!
And I go to sleep every night at nine or nine thirty which is NOT at all like me and then I'm up WAY early.

Hey Shirley, things are TOO expensive for sure. I hate it!
Frozen Ensure, that's not a bad idea!
