Memorial Day Shopping.
I love the holidays. There are always great deals on condiments and other picnic items.
And this week was no exception.
In order to save a little time, I only shopped at Hen House and Costco.
First, you’ll need to pretend that you can see my photo from my shopping trip at Costco. *ahem* Someone was lazy when they got home and didn’t take the picture. (nufsaid)
Costco Imaginary Picture: Skim Milk, Organic Peeled Carrots (5 lbs), Ground Beef (5 lbs), and Beef Brisket (5 lbs). TotalL $47.32
Then I went to Hen House on Friday.

I’m SO EXCITED to have Beef Brisket. I’ve been craving it for about a month now, but I didn’t have an extra $20.00 to use. But this month, I had a little extra at the end of the month, so I was able buy a more expensive piece of meat. Can’t wait to make it this weekend – YUM.
And I still have $30.00 left to get us through the end of the month or to put toward next month or a new pedicure. (Cause I girl has priorities.)
Follow me as I chronicle my shopping adventures in an effort to spend $300 per month on groceries, health/beauty and cleaning products in Success Stories.
