I was all set to write a nice, breezy post today. I went home, took a nap, then decided to go grocery shopping first. Big mistake. Might I mention that I also went to the grocery store yesterday?
I’m trying to save money, and food is really the only thing I can cut back on. So, I went last night and the store was out of the main thing I wanted, so I just grabbed something for dinner and lunch for today and left. I went to what is supposed to be the cheaper place today and ended up spending way more than usual, and I have like two real meals!
I just walked out feeling really defeated. The first year I lived on my own and needed to go grocery shopping and make all my meals, I did really well. I lived in a much smaller town that had a local grocery chain I grew up going to. I went once a week, bought everything I needed to last me until the next week, and boom, done! I spent way too much once (and it was mostly on delicious fruit, which I ate all of!), and I fixed that problem real quick.
So what happened? I used to meal plan, and I was excited about my meals. Now, I have no idea what I want to eat. Everything just seems so blah. I think I may have developed some food sensitivities or something, which I need to get checked out. But that can’t be all of it.
I really want to figure this out. I don’t have money to splurge on anything, so I want to make the food I eat count! And I don’t want to spend a massive amount, especially when I’m having to refigure this all out.
What an ick way to end the day! I’m looking forward to just relaxing on the couch now, not thinking about this. 🙂
