A Week In Albany, NY, On A $47,000 Income

12 p.m. — Grocery shopping! M. and I try our best to meal plan, but it’s hard to figure out who should cook what and when during the week. We buy ingredients for a chicken marsala slow cooker meal, salami, cheese, fruits/veggies for my lunches, and my favorite sparkling water. M. pays today, and I finish our veggie chili leftovers from last week for lunch at home.
