September Groceries!

Morning, readers! 🙂

It’s such a beautiful, crisp autumn morning {if I do say so myself.} Check out the view from our bedroom deck. bea-u-ti-ful.

Darrin, Albany, and I are getting ready to head out on a walk as a family, then head over to my parent’s for the afternoon/evening. The Bengals play at one. Today is going to be a little heated. My mom (BenGal Mary) and I (Sacks in the City) play one another in Fantasy Football. Our names are super cute, huh? 🙂 The battle of mom and daughter. I’ll let you know how that turns out.

Onto nutrition!

I’ve been sharing my daily eats over the last few months and have received some requests to share my grocery purchases, as well. Well you’re in luck!  I took photos of my grocery hauls for the month of September. I’m pretty carefree about my grocery trips. I don’t follow a certain schedule. I usually keep a list on my iPhone on the “Reminders” button. Typically I go to Trader Joe’s once per month and Kroger once or twice a month. In September, I also picked up some stuff at Target, too. Just a reminder that overall Darrin and I do our own grocery shopping. I’ll buy him a few things, he’ll buy me a few things. Albany is eating whatever I eat {pretty much}. I typically spend around $200-$250 a month in groceries.
