What a frugal shopping weekend we had!
Several months ago, Hubby asked me what I thought about getting a juicer. So I told him my opinion and found some articles for him. I know many are big proponents of juicing, but I am not. I know there are lots of nutrients, but I hate the idea of throwing away all the fiber. Sure, you can bake the fiber into something, but then, aren’t you just eating baked goods? Defeating the purpose of juicing?
Bag of 9 Fuji apples $3.89
3 Mangoes $1.77
4 lbs strawberries $3.96
Bag of Romaine hearts $2.79
2.82 lbs bananas $0.99
Package of flour tortillas $1.99
Total $ 15.39
Next stop was a Mexican food restaurant for lunch. Yummy!
Last stop was Kroger, where we got:
2 diet 2 liters $1.78
Large bunch Kale $1.69
Large bunch Collard greens $.99
Large bunch of spinach $1.49
Head of iceburg lettuce $1.19
One lb baby carrots $1.99
Can of refried beans $.62
Total - $9.79
$25.18 total! That is the lowest grocery shopping trip I remember ever having. That was not it for the week, as I THINK Hubby went earlier in the week and picked up milk.
When we got home, I decided to cut up the fruit into chunks and freeze it for ease of use and to make the drinks cold and smooth.
I thought maybe they weren't ripe enough, but putting them in drinks would disguise the taste with other stuff. But Hubby brought home a mango smoothie yesterday and it tasted the same way to me.
So, I don't care for mangoes. Yeah....I'm weird.
