I was planning to go to the grocery store like usual on Friday, but after our traumatic evening Wednesday night and Thursday morning, I was rather behind and tired. And in surveying our cupboards, refrigerator, and freezer, I realized I had pretty much everything I needed to make it another week without shopping.
So my husband made a quick trip to buy milk, butter, and ice cream (the essentials, you know!), but other than that, I stayed home. I'll probably stop in to the store Monday or Tuesday to pick up some fresh produce but don't plan to buy anything else until my weekly shopping trip next Friday.
You know what? It was so nice to be able to skip shopping this week! I enjoy grocery shopping and snagging great bargains, but it's also nice to be able to take a week off when needed without really even missing it. That's one of the blessings of building and keeping a good stockpile of food and household supplies not to mention that skipping a shopping trip every once in a while is a great way to stretch your budget even farther!
On Monday, I'll share what our menu for almost-no-shopping week looks like. Stay tuned!
