I Have a Confession...
I am addicted to food shopping! There I said it. I love food shopping. I love matching coupons with sales. I love going through the clearance racks. I love checking every department to see what is marked down when all I needed is bread.
I went to Aldi for eggs. They are on sale for 96¢ a dozen this week. I also wanted to get some fruit and veggies. Aldi is on my way home from work so it isn't out of the way. I made the mistake of looking at the meat department. I saw lots of red mark down stickers. If you shop at Aldi, you know them. They put them on the items that they want to get rid of soon. Well, the next thing I know, I am checking out with 32 pounds of ground beef.
Each pack had $7 off in coupons. They all were priced at a little over $13.
I got 35.27 pounds of ground beef for $38.36. That comes to $1.18 a pound. I couldn't help myself. I am supposed to be doing a $100 grocery challenge. That isn't going to happen, so I am going to try to stay under $150.
We are set for ground beef for a while. I divided the meat into 32 1 pound bags. I see lots of chili, tacos, pasta with meat sauce or meatballs in our future.
Do you have a grocery shopping addiction? Would you have bought the ground beef if you were me?
