Adding To My Pantry
I keep a well stocked pantry. It really helps me keep my food costs down. When I find a good sale I could buy 20 of the same item so that I don't have to buy it again for 3 months. Well today I was near Stop & Shop so I stopped in to get the past 2 weeks of free items. They are going in Easter baskets so I will try and remember to show you them next week. I always check the marked down area in all of the local stores. And it usually pays off. Today was all about meat.
I got a whole chicken marked down to 84 cents a pound. That went right into the freezer.
Specialty Italian Sausage marked down to $2. 64 a pound. We have never had this kind before but at that price I am willing to try it.
My best find was over six pounds of chicken legs for 49 cents a pound. We love chicken legs on the BBQ or in the smoker. I'm hoping we will be getting some nice weather soon so that we can do both.
I' m lucky to have an extra freezer in my basement. We have been eating up all of last years produce that we grew so I had plenty of room for these great finds. It is always kind of like a treasure hunt for me when I go into a market. I love to find the best deals possible
Have you found any great marked down items recently?I would love to hear about them.
