It’s the end of week three in our NO Spending Spree. We’ve got just one more week to go, and I’m thinking we could extend the no spending another month entirely! But since my birthday and a trip to Colorado are coming up, we would not be able to go without spending. But, I have no doubt that our groceries could last us another month aside from produce, milk, bread and eggs purchases.
I picked up more milk to take us through the next two weeks (the last ones lasted us two weeks), and I went to the farmers market this morning. I got local organically grown potatoes for $1 per pound! You better believe I snatched up 15 pounds of those babies. I’ll be making up some mashed potatoes and possibly even some potato chips!
I also got all those cucumbers (8) and squash (6) for a total of $5. The best way to save money on produce and ensure that it’s organically grown is to eat local. And it helps your community!
Money spent on produce: $20
Money spent on milk: $24
This week was a struggle for me personally. I had the strongest urge for sushi and pizza a few days ago (no I’m not preggo, so don’t even ask!). But yes I survived without those things, and rather enjoyed saving the money it would have cost us to go out to eat.
We enjoyed free blockbuster and redbox rentals (and remembered to take them back in time!), visited a local farm and played for free at a fast food play place (no fast food was consumed!). The kids enjoyed puzzles, coloring, playing with their toys and in the back yard. I could get used to this NO Spending Spree…
