3.42 Final

Notes

No coupons or rebates just shopped sales. I wanted to use the parsley and onion from the garden (next pic) and one of my favorites is a cucumber/avocado/tomato salad. I cannot wait for later this summer when the only thing I'll have to buy is the avocado!


The Garden

Things I grew!! Red onion, swiss chard, multiple types of lettuce, parsley and a couple strawberries.
It was fun having an actual decent sized harvest already :)


This week's donation. About 2 weeks of stuff that I took in. Completely free via couponing. I actually think it ended up making me like $5 or so. Non sugar sweeteners are a huge thing at the pantry. They fly off the shelf with the diabetic clients.
