I put 15 items in a bag for Mr. R to drop off at the thrift store. Mostly clothes and some books. This is part of what I will be donating. My goal for this year was to donate or sell 365 items. So only 350 left to go.
Went to Aldi for groceries. I was starving and over bought a bit. It was crazy busy and they were out of a lot of stuff. I kept having to go back and forth to try to find substitutes for things on my list when I realized they were out of what I needed. I spent $97. I got a late start to Aldi, so instead of making my own pizza dough, I bought a pack of 2 pizza crusts with sauce for $3.49! I really wanted to just put it back. I can make it so much cheaper, but I just didn't have time. I have $283 left in the grocery budget for January.
I made an awesome Mexican pizza with the refried beans I made in the crock pot last week. I added a layer of salsa, jalapenos, and 2 cups Mexican cheese blend. Baked it until the cheese was melty and starting to brown. We topped it with sour cream. Even the girls liked it (only I didn't put jalapenos on their half). The second pizza was topped with pizza sauce, leftover ham and 2 cups of mozzarella cheese. The girls both ate a piece of this pizza too. I was really impressed with how well they came out.
