Finds of the Week
You guys know already how much I love shopping, but last night’s episode of The Biggest Loser (anyone else a fan?) really kind of pushed my buttons. They did this challenge where they had to buy groceries for themselves for the week, with only $10 a day. Of course they all freaked and were shocked when they made their budget and were able to buy the healthy food they wanted.
Can I just say that the whole “eating healthy is too expensive” excuse is a little old? Don’t get me wrong, I understand that a salad is more than a burrito at a restaurant, but I’m talking about in the grocery stores. The truth is, if you know what you’re doing (and even if you don’t!!) you can easily make it out of the grocery store without spending your entire paycheck (unless you shop at Whole Foods and it sucks you in, then that’s just your fault).
Here’s a perfect example of shopping on a budget. Today I got some major deals, and sure maybe these deals won’t be there next week, but that’s why you look around!! And maybe next week it’ll be something new that you get on sale, you just have to LOOK!!
Total so far: $7
Total so far $9.50
Cascadian Farms cereal buy one get one free ($3.99 each)
Total so far $15.49
Total is $22.49
Now granted, I buy much more than this for Ninja and I, and some of these things were impulse buys (cereal anyone?!), but the point is that you CAN eat healthy for a decent price. And cutting out meat a few times a week will help tremendously. Beans are a super cheap way to get in your protein, and you seriously can’t go wrong with a homemade black bean enchilada.
Do you shop on a budget?
What are your must haves each week, regardless of price?
