  1. Hi! and thanks for stopping by my blog. My store only sells one kind of lentils and they are light brown. Oh and sometimes i don't add any ground beef and they are just as good without it, and much healthier.

  2. How do you save so much on groceries!

  3. It's all about the grocery game. I am glad it is summer when I can focus on stockpiling and saving money! Last week I averaged 62%. It went down a little.
