WHAT'S ON SUZIE'S MENU?
I had an interesting week last week! This Grocery Hiatus hasn't been quite what I expected seeing as we've spent money on food eating out. My Explorer has decided to crap out on me, which is okay because I expected it, but it's made the last week of our lives very hectic.
I am proud of myself for going with the rational purchase of a 2000 Ford Explorer with around 88k miles on it rather than a nice, new prettier one with significantly more miles. Saving money is all about making sacrifices. Would a newer car be nice? Of course. Do I need it? Nope. Does it benefit my family to get it? Nope. I believe I spent the least amount of money possible for a reliable vehicle, so I will pat myself on the back! No car payment and no additional gas expense. We'll pick up Dora III after work today, so who knows what our menu will be like tonight, but I will be tackling some of the meals from last week considering I only cooked once:
Inside Out Chicken Pot Pie
Baked Chicken w/ Hashbrown Casserole
Turkey Sausage Chilli
My Grocery Hiatus technically ends this week, but I only plan to buy the bare minimum since money was shelled out elsewhere with working around all the car stuff and birthday celebrations.
I hope you all have a great start to the week!
