Last Week’s $64 Grocery Shopping Trip

I had some leftover ham in the freezer from making Ham & Beans last week, so I pulled it out and used it to make a favorite of ours — Ham & Cheese Pockets.

The next night, there was still a little ham left, so I made scrambled eggs with ham, onions, and cheese and we had homemade mini waffles, too.

I found some great markdowns at the grocery store this week – including eggs, turkey wings, yogurt, bread, bananas, canned goods, and pumpkin pancake mix! My total for all these groceries was $64.

Since I got eggs and bread marked down, I’m thinking we’ll have French Toast sometime this next week. And I bought chocolate chips to make Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins.

The Pumpkin Spice Pancake mix was just $0.37 each, so I think we might have breakfast for dinner two nights this week — especially since we have breakfast sausage in the freezer from a deal awhile back!

For a few years, people have suggested I should join TikTok and post there. I resisted it because I wasn’t sure what to post. But some of my online friends suggested I take some of the things I post on Instagram Stories and re-purpose them for TikTok. So I just started posting two days ago and am having fun experimenting with it!

If you are already on TikTok and would like to join me, you can follow me here.

I love it when I find bananas marked down!

I freeze them to use in banana bread, banana muffins, and smoothies!

I’m finally feeling well enough in my pregnancy (I’m 17 weeks today!) to eat my daily salads for lunch again!! YAY!

I made Baked Turkey Wings with the marked down turkey wings I got. We served them with mashed potatoes and green beans and it kind of felt like Thanksgiving in January!
