Later, in the early afternoon, I went to the ethnic grocery store:
|July 16 Groceries|
Peaches, 1.25 lb @ $.49/lb = $.61
Onions, 1.01 lb @ $.25/lb = $.25
Broccoli crown, .52 lb @ $.89/lb = $.46
12 cans coconut water, @ $.69 = $8.28
Calif. Redemption Value, @ $.05/can = $.60
Cauliflower, 2.15 lb @ $.39/lb = $.84
Lettuce = $.50
Amarretti cookies = $2.19
Italian bread = $2.39
Total = $16.12
They also had red seedless grapes on sale for $.69/lb, but I didn't buy because I still have some of the grapes I bought earlier.
One reason why I go to the ethnic grocery store is the prices on their produce; in comparison, at the regular Big Chain grocery store, broccoli and cauliflower are $.99/lb; lettuce is $.99 each; peaches are $.99/lb. I couldn't find their price on onions this week, but I'm sure it's more than $.25/lb.

Grocery spending so far in July = $12.25 + $23.02 + $16.12 = $51.39
I couldn't finish my decluttering yesterday, so I finished it today:
|July 15 Decluttering|
1 binder organizer
1 index cards binder
1 autograph album
2 packs of playing cards
1 boxed picture frame
2 empty boxes
1 battery operated Neopets toy
1 knitted mini doll
3 tape dispensers
- a couple of sheets of stickers
= 15 miscellaneous items
And I did today's (Saturday's) decluttering:
|July 16 Decluttering|
16 assorted books!
So far, I have decluttered: 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16 = 136 items.
My aunt called to say that, although she had hoped to visit me today, she was too tired/jet lagged to do so (she just returned from a week-long visit to France, yesterday). I told her it was fine, we'll visit another time.
I spent a quiet evening, chatting with a cousin who called and video chatting with daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A visit from a friend
- Being able to do my own grocery shopping, again
- Pleasant weather (today's high was only 88F)
- Keeping in touch with friends and family
- Starting to taste some foods, again.
Plans for tomorrow include going out to brunch with a friend.
Hope you are all having a nice weekend.
