Adding to my Pantry
Meat was on sale this week at Stop & Shop. You could get 2 value packs of either chicken legs, thighs or combos. I got thighs. They were 69¢ a pound. Pork chops were on sale for 99¢ a pound.
The plastic wrap was marked down to 49¢. We don't use it often but for that price I will buy it.
The graham crackers were 57¢. We are still doing fire pits and making smores so I was happy to get them. I don't mind a damaged box.
My total for Stop & Shop was $10.53.
I also got this juice for free. It was supposed to be a 4 pack of small ones but they never got them in. The manager let me get this instead.
Staples sent me another voucher. I spent 3¢
A few days later Staples was at it again. YD came with me this time since we were going right to the mall after and it is close by. It cost me 28¢ after a $10 off $10 purchase. They must have a glitch in their system because every week we are getting one. They are different codes and need to be used in 5 days. I will keep going as long as they keep sending them. I will not bring YD again because she suckered me into getting her snacks.
I went to BJ's. I had a bunch of cans and bottles to return. I got $7.80 in returns. That brought my bill to $7.06
Mt garden goodies are still going. I picked a little over 7 pounds for this batch. There was peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, pole beans and carrots.
This picking was a little over 11 pounds.
I made more sauce with all of the tomatoes. We ate it 2 different nights and I canned 4 quarts.
I froze the rest of the corn I bought last week on the cob.
Hubby and my son brought home lots of goodies from work. YD brought home lots of leftovers from float build and senior breakfast. What ever we aren't eating right away I froze.
I made breadcrumbs from a bunch of bread ends when I cleaned out the freezer. Some went back into the freezer for future use. I also dried more herbs.
Dollar Tree got a shop too. I spent $21.43.
I also did a trip to Meat Farms. Hubby had been wanting to make a broccoli rabe pizza so I needed to buy some. Bananas were marked down 10 for $1.59. YD uses a lot of these in smoothies. The lettuce was marked down to 99¢ for 3 heads. Mine is almost done in the garden. I also got some sausage marked down. My total was $27.49.
I spent $66.82. I know I am over for the month but I do have a surplus for the year. I will be trying to spend as little as possible the next few days. Wish me luck.
