1 bag of baby spinach (which I normally get in a larger size for the same price, but they have been out of that size lately, sadly) - $1.99
1 jar of Traditional Marinara Sauce - $1.99
You can see that the possibilities here are endless, as long as you're creative and open to different food pairings. I could go on but I just wanted to illustrate how shopping for options over convenience can make your life both easier and tastier during Scary Week. You can even have a glass of wine or two to make things a bit more classy every now & then - how many people can say they can do that and have a week's worth of different meals and feed your cats on such a tiny budget?
Next stop for the $25 Shopping Cart will probably be a major grocery store or its outlet cousin, just to break away from my Trader Joe's obsession and show you that it can be done at other places. Hope you've enjoyed today's lesson! Now for some yummy gnocchi & marinara with a spinach & tomato salad and some vino..... Bon Appetit!
