Doing Some Grocery After 5 Months of Not Visiting the Mall
It's been 5 months now since I go to the market and buy some groceries.
I and my hubby always do it before when we don't have a baby. But now after my pregnancy, everything changed. I used to stay at home and nurse our baby. While my hubby? He's the only one doing the grocery and market thing.
So now, he insisted that we should go with him to the grocery store.
And that happened.
3:00 pm when we prepared ourselves and go to the mall.
Of course, visiting the atm is a must before anything else.
He just withdraws some handy cash. Just P1,000/$18.32 for the grocery.
Immediately, we go to the mall. Get the cart, and pick some needed items for our everyday meals.
We just set a budget of P800/$14.66 for our weekly food expenses. Every time I pick some item, I calculated the price to make sure we will just get the right amount. Budgeting is really hard nowadays, especially now that I can't work full-time.
I want to put more on that cart, but I needed to prioritize the baby diaper as it cost P200/$3.66 now. While we were at the cashier, I forgot to buy milk. I needed to eliminate one item just to change it with milk. So we chose the tissue to remove. We still have 2 rolls at home, so milk has been added.
So that's it. All in all, we paid... P837.25/$15.34. Not bad for the planned budget.
After that, we decided to eat some snacks. And I chose to have some pizza this afternoon.
We chose the ham & cheese. The common flavor and the cheapest one. 🙈 And I'm telling you, this pizza is quite more tasty and cheesy when eaten hot. So, dining in is better to choose than taking it out when it comes to pizza. Plus, the rain won't stop this afternoon, so we can't go outside.
And guess who enjoyed that pizza more?
This little one who just tasted it for the first time. He loves food all the time just like his mom. Alright, that's me. HAHA.
Anyways, he also tasted the box. Maybe it's cheesier than the actual pizza. This boy just eats everything around him. So keeping an eye on him is a must.
After eating that pizza, we plan to go home. And my hubby requested a quick selfie. And here it is.
Our little one is still crying at that time. He didn't get satisfied with that pizza. He wants more.
But he's just 5 months old, so it's a big NO-NO.
Ouch, he slapped me. This little man got an attitude.
And that's the end of our market journey. 😉

Another family time out must means a lot to you after five months. Congratulations on your safe delivery and I can't resist saying you have a pretty baby.
Budgeting is a very good thing to do when going shopping to avoid spending unnecessarily.
Thanks, @george-dee. 🥰
Yes... Especially now that money is hard to find but so easy to spend. 😒
I haven't go to grocery stores for years and I'm afraid I doesn't know how much the items will cost now..xD.. Congratulations on having an adorable baby.
Really? How come you're not going? 😅
Because of online shops left and right 😂😂
Aww... Hahaha, oo nga. Mas madali at nakakamura pa.
Such as adorable little thing!!! He's so cute! That pizza does look yummy
Thank you 🤗 Yes. It tastes good too. So cheesy, that's what I love most about pizza. 😍
Hi Mayt, nice to hear that you are shopping again after few months of nursing ur baby
Of course, maintaining budget is difficult now considering the price inflation.
I see ur baby taking a royal bite of that pizza 😂🍕
Hahaha, that royal bite leads to his cravings more on that food.
I see ☺️😉😂👍✅
My warm regards to ur child
Living on a budget is hard but if done right you will enjoy picking the fruits of that labor a couple of years from now
