#Surviveon35 Grocery Haul

So today was my first time ever going to the local farmers market. The last time I went to one, I was 11, living in Detroit. It was cool seeing all the different people, and all the food from all over the world. I will be back 🙂



Dekalb Farmers Market
Bunch of carrots
A lot of celery
4 ears of corn
3 lbs of cabbage
1 green pepper
Head of Lettuce
1 lb of chuck beef
1.5 lbs of apples
2.5 lbs of organic bananas
1 lb tomato

Kroger brand raisin bran
Corned beef hash
Ground espresso
2.5 lbs of chicken breast

Total: 11.95 at Kroger +21.44 at the Farmers Market= 33.39



So I went over my budget. I will just have to cut some things next week. I also learned that while some things are worth going to the farmers market for, the grocery store is still a good place to go. I probably could have saved a bit more if I had researched sales first.

In terms of planning my meals for the next week, I am also in the process of moving next weekend, so I want to leave here with my kitchen cabinets bare. I will post my meals each day.

Bacon, Eggs, hash browns, and whole wheat waffles with syrup
