4 Day Cleanse Shopping List

Here’s my shopping list for my 4 day cleanse. Some of the items I already have on hand, and others I will have to pick up at specialty stores. My frugal self is keeping it budget friendly too. I found that Grocery Outlet has most of the items on my list (including cremini mushrooms!), so I’ll do some of my shopping there. I have flaxseed oil, but not sure how long it last, so if I have to purchase more there’s a great local Natural Foods Store near me I’ll stop in at to get the rest of my items I haven’t found. As always I’ll work in cash only, use coupons on some items, and keep to my list.
