Grocery Shopping For One

With a husband being deployed..
Sometimes I feel like grocery shopping for one is pointless. 
I buy a dozen eggs... I use 4.. Trash
Loaf of bread- Make one sandwich..Trash
Pork chops- Too many in pack.. Trash

See a trend.. Too much food for one person to eat.
I eat the same foods for TWO weeks to keep from wasting it..

Here is what I keep in my fridge.. 
Pepper Jelly (2 jars)
1/2 dozen eggs
Silk Light Chocolate Milk
Cranberry Juice (made with Splenda)
Raspberry Lemonade---Amazing stuff. Only 50 calories for a glass..
Turkey bacon

Cheeses (shredded cheddar, string)
Real UNSALTED butter--- Salt is just a preservative in butter. Use unsalted.
Tuna with water-- I keep cans in fridge.. So tuna salad is cold once I make it.
Corn tortillas
Cilantro- I eat this stuff on everything
Guacamole ingredients.. (I keep ingredients for recipes in baskets, easy for grab&go prep)

I always have Popsicle's
Wine bag
Frozen berries
Chicken breasts

Fish fillets
Bagged steamed veggies

Of course I have some inspiration to keep me from eating everything in the house. 
Stress eater=moi!
And my on-going grocery list... You can find a copy of here
This grocery list is amazing.. 
It organizes into categories and you will get everything you need all in one section. 

What are some of the things you always have on hand?


  1. you better not be throwing away meat! that stuff can be frozen! lol. I always have to have milk and bread crumbs! what lots of things call for it! hahaha.

  2. I eat cereal for like every meal. I like lunch meat because I'll eat it without the bread. Tonight I had yogurt, turkey pepperoni and a little bit of popcorn for dinner. I love granola bars and normally have string cheese. I try to eat fruit, but it normally goes bad. My eggs are still sitting in there. Also eggo's and nutella!

  3. as for the popcorn...Rural King makes a great ranch powder if you want to change things up a bit ;-)

  4. I hate cooking and grocery shopping when it's just for me. In fact,recently I've just been getting turkey and cheese


Love hearing from y'all! Thanks for reading!
