$30 A Week for 52 Weeks

Week 2

Every adversity, every failure, and every heartache, carries with it the Seed of an equivalent or greater Benefit.
~Napoleon Hill

Yesterday was the start of Week 2.
I have to remind myself of the above quote, to keep my situation in positive perspective. I went to the market this morning, I did not need to get a lot. I still have a lot of dried beans and grains. This is due to the fact that I took Chris to Winco and at that time I stocked up. However, at that time I hadn’t planned on being unemployed or for that matter posting $30 a week for 52 weeks, it’s just been instinct for me stock up when I can. Today I spent $13.93.

Green beans     .76
Oatmeal         1.24
Cheese           2.79
Half and half  1.29
Milk               1.99
Yeast 3pk      2.49
Bananas        1.09
Pasta 1lb       1.49
Subtotal       13.14
Tax                 .79

Total           13.93

The green beans were fresh and on sale; the oatmeal is in bulk and will last about 10 days. The yeast will make 3 loaves of bread. I could’ve bought more, but really, I have a lot and I’m watching every dollar.
I still have some food left from last week; eggs and broccoli, and half of the spaghetti squash. I made a pumpkin bread yesterday from pumpkin I saved from the last time I made it. Not difficult and I’m not going hungry, and believe me – I can eat. Yes, meals need to be planned. But that is what real food is all about – good things take time. Good food takes time and it’s a priority. I don’t need to go around thinking or worrying about it. If I’ve taken care of it, it’s there for me.
