Buying in Bulk

My husband and I went to Costco last night! I love that store!!!!!!!! One of my favorite things to buy there is the prepackaged chicken breast. I know its more expensive then just buying a whole chicken, but I have to say the convenience of having chicken breast already divided in neat little prepacked bags is priceless for me. That way I only have to defrost one chicken breast at a time if I want. That really works well since I like to grill up chicken to go on my salads for the week. My opinion is this is pretty frugal.. becauseeeeee when I buy chicken in a huge pack bundled together or buy a whole chicken cooking it all up at once I find myself wasting chicken! Even If i freeze it.. then I forget that I have it in the freezer. So paying more actually saves me in the long run!

I also bought myself a monster bag of Baking soda hahah thanks to all you lovely bloggers who have now convinced me that Baking soda and Vinegar are a necessity to have in the home!!!! Baking Powder is such a good deal there as well. I think I paid like 3.49 for a big container.. that will last me quite a while! I bought the 5 dozen eggs, which is such a good deal at 5.49! Anyway, I won't bore you with EVERYTHING I bought lol but Costco really is a great place to buy some things in bulk.. truly does save money in the long run. (That is if your husband doesn't keep throwing stuff in the cart like books, computer software, and anything else they can find lol)

Totally agree about buying in bulk. I shop at Sam's once a month. If I am short on time, I pre-order my groceries online and they pull them and scan them for me, free of charge. I just walk in, pay, and they load me up.

I totally agree! I have a once a month Costco list. The pre-cut chicken breasts are my big "splurge"!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
