Adding to my Pantry
It was my birthday this week. I am 44 years old. My sister came over to celebrate and brought lobsters and steaks. She is always very generous and she brought way too much. Hubby cooked and it was delicious.
There was leftover lobster that I happily ate the next day. We put the extra pack of steaks in the freezer for another night.
My sister brought lemons for the lobsters and the kale drinks that my daughter loves.
She gave me lots of snacks and Ziploc baggies for my birthday. I love that she knows I don't need more stuff. The chocolate covered pretzels are so good.
YD gave me my favorite cookies for my birthday. These will not last long. I have no control when it comes to these.
My son brought home lots of bagels, cookies and pastries. The chocolate pastries are my favorite.
I did do some shopping this week. Hubby and I went to Stop & Shop. They had corn on sale 10 for $2 which is the best I can get it around here. We got 20 corns. Buns were on sale for $1 and I had a digital coupon for $1 off 2, so one of them was free. The yogurt and baby food were free thanks to coupons. I gave my neighbor the baby food. She has a 6 month old grandson. The watermelon was on sale $2.99.
The ribs were on sale for $1.99 a pound. We got 2 packs. Hubby smoked 1 pack and a chicken that was in the freezer.
The eggs were marked down to 89¢. They were jumbo and there was only 1 missing.
My total for Stop & Shop was $36.32.
We needed fresh fruit so I stopped at Meat Farms. I hit the marked down rack, I got the apples and oranges for $1.59 each.There were 8 apples and 10 oranges. I picked up YD from drivers education right after so I ate 2 oranges while waiting and then she had one on the ride home. They were very sweet and juicy. I also grabbed a 10 pound bag of onions that my son put right into the basement for me. Grapes were on sale for 99¢ a pound.
Total at Meat Farms was $12.92.
Shop Rite was having some great condiment sales because of Memorial Day. I went after work one day. They were out of most things so I got rain checks. With digital coupons I got the 2 ice creams for $1.50 each. The hummus was on sale for $1.99. The olives were on sale for $1 each. Sauerkraut and BBQ sauce were both on sale but not in stock.
Shop Rite total was $22.82.
Total for all grocery shopping this week was $71.06. I did Ibotta and will get 75¢ back.
What did you get to add to your pantry this week? Did you take advantage of any good sales? Do you get rain checks when the store doesn't have what you want?
