Adding to My Pantry
Friday I went to a bunch of stores. I was out getting donations for a Church event that I am helping with. Since I was near the stores already, I stopped in. I sure am glad I did. I got chicken breasts on the bone marked down to 99¢ a pound. That is an amazing price for where I live. So I bought them all. I'm really glad that we have been using up last summers produce from the freezer so that I had room.
I also got ground pork for $1.99 a pound which is a good price. I try to keep meat to $2 a pound except for steak because I never see it at that price. Last year I did find flank steaks at $3.99 a pound so I stocked up on them. We are getting low on them so I am hoping around Memorial day steaks will go on sale.
I also got a gallon of milk for $2.99 and ice cream on sale for $1.99. Stop & Shop total was $31.03.
I went to CVS because I had $5 in ECB and a rain check for tuna. The tuna was finally in. It had been on sale for 88¢ each and I was allowed 10. The candy bar was free with a coupon I had gotten in the mail.
Total at CVS was $3.84
Lastly I went to Meat Farms on Friday. They also had meat marked down. I got sausage meat for $1.99 a pound. and Italian sweet sausages for $1.99 a pound.
They had cheese ends $2.29 a pound. We like to pick on these. They are really good.
I got an assortment of fruit for $1.59.
I thought 10 pieces of fruit for $1.59 was good. Mangoes were a $1.29 a piece at the store, so that makes everything else 30¢. I also got 1/2 a pound of roastbeef cold cuts for $4 and a loaf of Italian bread for 93¢. Total at Meat Farms was $19.05
Monday I went to Aldi for our everyday groceries. Total was $25.96
I was at work Tuesday and I got a text from my youngest daughter. She wanted to know could she finish the ice cream. I said sure. Then my brain went What ice cream? The one I bought Friday? She said yes. So I stopped at Stop & Shop on the way home since the sale is still going on. I got 2 this time, $1.99 each.
I hit the marked down racks too. Shampoo was marked down to $1.37 each. I bought 4. It was all they had.
They also had eggs marked down. Usually it is because some broke, so some are missing. I got 2 packs.
Total for Stop & Shop was $11.36
Hubby also ordered some pods for the Nespresso machine. We have Amazon Prime so free shipping. They were $9.49
We have been harvesting kale from the garden for smoothies. Seeds got planted for 3 kinds of tomatoes, 3 kinds of peppers and lettuce in my mini greenhouse. Peas got planted in the garden. Soon we should be having lots of fresh veggies.
My total for the week came to $100.73. Right on target and I got lots of chicken, tuna, sausage, and shampoo added to my pantry.
Did you add anything to your pantry this week? It is important to try to add something every week. 1 or 2 things extra every week really help build up your pantry over the course of a year. I would love to know what great deals you got this week? Anyone getting fruits and vegetables from your gardens?
