Week 13 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022 and the “Kids” are Up!

I spent a lot on food in general this week. I needed supplies and I have been spending way too much on baking essentials so I broke down and went to Walmart for baking stuff. Walmart is not my jam but in this instance it saves us a boat load. Here is what I boughtContinue reading “Week 13 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022 and the “Kids” are Up!”

How Many Pounds of Food We Grew in 2021

Every year my goal has been to grow 1000 lbs of food out of our home victory garden. Each season I get a little closer to that goal! 2021 was a wonderful growing season for us. The peaches from the 2 trees we have were so plentiful they broke the branches. The tomatoes were overwhelminglyContinue reading “How Many Pounds of Food We Grew in 2021”

Week 12 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022

Last week was a bit of a strange week in the food department because my son was gone until Wednesday and the Hubbs and I just winged it. We only ate out twice. On Friday we got a pizza and on Saturday we went out for lunch. I usually grocery shop on Sundays after churchContinue reading “Week 12 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022”

Week 10-11 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022

I did not grocery shop last week. I was really sick and just didn’t get to the grocery store. I figured it would be a good week to just buy a couple of things we needed and otherwise skip shopping. With just a few things to buy we only spent $39.83 at the store lastContinue reading “Week 10-11 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022”

Week 9 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022

For week 9 I got away with spending just $150.30, which seems kind of funny to say because $150 for groceries is still a lot!

On the menu this week: Dinners: salmon with rice and veggies, flatbreadContinue reading “Week 9 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022”

Week 8 – What We are Eating and How Much We Spent on Groceries 2022 Plus a Bonus

For week 8 our grocery bill was $178.52.  The most expensive things I bought was ground beef and olive oil. Gotta have the olive oil right?

Although I have been working in my garden for the past month I am going to label this update as Week 1. Let’s start this series of posts with what a victory garden really is.
