Another week and another weekly grocery trip. I’ve noticed a significant shift in the items I’ve been buying lately. More meat, dairy, produce and far less processed foods. In fact I went digging for a photo of a grocery trip from over a year ago and you can see how awful it was.
(I have no idea how much this cost. I don’t even remember why I was taking pictures of my grocery haul at that time)
I see lots of processed foods, in fact, I stared at this picture for a long time before I saw 2 bags of spinach in the back and of course the cantaloupe up front. Other than that I don’t see any other produce. I see cookies, pretzels, chips, bleach (?), brownies, biscuits…clearly lots of trigger food.

It’s a huge sigh of relief to see this past weeks haul in comparison. Spinach, carrots, yellow squash, butternut squash, eggs, soy milk, simple meats and cheese, etc. Such a dramatic difference.
The total for all this came to $40.89. Not bad at all especially since meat/dairy are typically difficult to find coupons for. I did have $1 off coupons for each container of Silk and I found some great clearance deals at Fresh & Easy.
