It seems that hitting Costco after payday has become a thing for me, this is the third time I’ve done this in 2014. I really do love me some Costco finds.
I’ve made a decision to make some changes in my diet (more on that later this week!) and I reasoned picking up some staples from Costco would be the most efficient way to bring about these changes.
I do go to Costco with a budget (odd, I know) and I even walk around with my phone in my hand adding up each item I put in my cart. The good thing is that after I pick up my monthly staples at Costco, I only spent about $100 the rest of the month on food. This is the third month I’ve done this and I’ve seen my grocery budget go way down. Yay!! 🙂
The weather this weekend was truly awful. Again. Still. Whatever.
I know hitting up Costco on a weekend is always busy, but thankfully I was in and out in under and hour. I didn’t have much in the way of a list, but I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted and I do tend to stick with buying many of the same items.
Peppers for snacking, carrot juice for smoothies, beets for salads (and maybe smoothies), spinach and kale for smoothies and veggies for my lunches.
Greek yogurt, crab ravioli (a yummy treat!), fish filets, the best soup ever and cheese. Because, cheese 🙂
Oats for work snacks and morning fun fuel, unsweetened coconut milk, frozen cherries for smoothies, frozen berries for smoothies and dates for snacking.
Even Merlin helped out with the picture-taking.
Last week I mentioned how my treats are going to focus on me and my well-being, and this is the first in that. I feel good about the food I purchased and spent time on Saturday and Sunday prepping food for the week and organizing. It really is true, it’s easy to eat healthy when you have it in your home.
Tell me: How have you treated yourself this week?
I’m linking up with Becky for Treat Yourself Tuesday. Thanks for hosting, love ❤
