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.

    1. Good luck. I always say a prayer before I go food shopping and it really does help me.Talk to your meat department people. Many times they have told me of a good sale because I am friendly to them.

  2. Oh yes, girl--check those clearance aisles! I can almost always find a few items at a great price to add to my pantry. I recently found bags of hearts of palm for 50 cents each. I like to make mock crab cakes, and the hearts of palm help to give a good texture. I'm excited, because Friday morning we are doing the big stock up shopping trip, and I will be hitting every clearance aisle in each store we go to.

    1. That was a great find. Have fun on Friday. Bring some drinks and snack so you don't overspend.

    1. Aldi is my go to for everyday shopping. Stop & Shop and Shop Rite do have good markdowns and specials. I'm lucky that they are all really close. Target has eggs on sale this week 18 count for 99 cents, so I stopped in there and got 5 packages. It does save me money to shop around and I like doing it.
