Frugal Friday with Marsha --Basic Grocery List


What is your basic grocery list?  The food you like to always have on hand no matter what?

Here is my list:
Ground Beef
Ground Turkey
Vegetable Soup
Tomato Soup
Cream of Mushroom Soup
Powdered Sugar (this to make myself a bit of frosting if I am having a sugar attack)
Peanut Butter

With these things I can always come up with a meal.

Things I like to always have in the house are:
Carnation Breakfast Drink
Honey Wheat Puffs cereal
Dr. Pepper!!!
Microwave popcorn
Fresh fruits and veggies

I actually did my grocery shopping yesterday instead of today, paid for with Walmart gift cards earned from Swagbucks and PerkTV.
I bought: cantaloupe, gallon of milk, Hamburger Helper, Ragu pasta sauce, 4-2 ltrs of Dr. Pepper, a a dozen eggs.
I paid $13.91 and got back $2.85 from ibotta.  I am so thankful for all of the any brand, regular grocery foods, that ibotta has with rebates!  I got money back from ibotta on everything that I bought.

Not bad, but not much food.  Thankfully my mom gave us some ground beef and other beef, plus cans of beef stew, some soups, and some canned vegetables.  These will help us get through this week along with what we still had left on hand for meats.

Writer's Unite 6/4/15


We've made it to June.  It looks like summer is finally here.  We had a lot of rain here in Kansas throughout May and now the temps are staying where I am not cold.

I am still slacking off on my writing except a post a day on bubblews.   I'm in hopes for the motivation needed to get the needed blog posts written over the weekend.

How is your writing morivation now that summer is upon us?
