Yesterday was my big stock up/replenishing grocery store trip. I hit 3 stores, didn't use any coupons (so few out there anyway) as most of what we needed/wanted came from stores such as Aldi's where I select private label products. I only use one "food pantry," narrow cabinet for common food stuffs storage such as crackers, cerearls, open pasta boxes, oil, vinegar, etc. Daily, I turn to my food storage, located at the bottom of the cellar stairs, right next to the door that opens to the garage (back in, place groceries right on selves (or in freezer located in garage). Very convenient.
We are well set moving into the cold season. The rest of my monies this month, besides the usual gallon of milk, butter etc will be put towards meat deals for the freezer, and hopefully some hotel style turkey breasts. Stores recently had them @ 99/lb but I missed that sale. I did see fzn HoneySuckle whole birds at Xpect for 75.lb. and I am contemplating getting a few of those.
