Broke as a Joke

30 Oct
Long time no post, huh? It seems like with all of this free-time off work I would be posting everyday! I usually go on here and then get caught up in everybody else’s blogs that I no longer have the time to post on my own blog! How funny.

Food and random event recap:

Wednesday’s Lunch:

My lovely boyfriend made me the best sweet and sour tofu!

Thursday’s Breakfast:

Raspberry almond oats sprinkled with dark chocolate

Then I made… Trail Mix!!!


It’s huge! All the honey crisp apples with this big! Yes, this is apparently organic.

Yesterday, I went to Border’s…TWICE.

I went during my break at school with no money. I saw this workout journal I really wanted so I went back later with my friend to get it.

This journal is so cool. I hope that it will motivate me to work out more plus, it’s fun keeping track of things; that’s like my #1 hobby. Do you have anything you like to keep a journal of?

Broke as a joke:

Lately I have been doing a lot of bargain grocery shopping because well…. I’m freakin broke. My hours got cut at work (by like… an entire week) but I don’t feel like focusing on that right now. The point is, vegan food can be cheap. I’m sure you remember the whole $21 challenge, right? I’m not going that extreme this time but I need to start budgeting my food somehow. What better way to do it then to search for coupons? Seriously, google coupons for *enter your favorite vegan brand here* and see what comes up. Or even better, go to their website and they usually will have a coupon somewhere on the site. So forget giving up veggie burgers or vegan ice-cream for good (Or if not it’s usually a lot cheaper when you make your own veggies burgers, just sayin’…)

Ex: My new favorite; Gardein.

Gardein’s site offers a $1 dollar off coupon that you can print off twice then take that shit to Kroger.
originally $4.99 a bag, on sale at Kroger for $3.99, Kroger doubles coupons up to $1… one bag of crispy tenders for .99 cents!


What do you do to save money on groceries?

    Mmmm sweet and sour tofu sounds AMAZING. What a nice boyfriend you have 🙂
    I also like your idea of putting trail mix in a jar-smart!

      The jar was a pasta sauce jar a few days ago 🙂

    I didn’t know ANY store did double coupons anymore! I’ve never lived within the vicinity of a Kroger, though. Shucks!

    I’ve been eating on a very tight budget for pretty much all year. I make a lot of things with beans and rice.

      You should ask the stores near you if they double! I think VG’s does too if you have one of those.

      I love beans and rice!
