Planning ahead for Fall/Winter meals
Shoprite has has loss leader sales on what I'll call Fall/Winter meats. Recently, I bought 2 hotel style turkey breasts @ 89/lb for the freezer. Prior to that, I grabbed a shank ham @ 99/lb (manager's special) at Stop & Shop. Today, after dropping kidlet off at work, I returned to Shoprite, again to capitalize on sales as well as loss leader hams: shank hams @ 69/lb, butt portion @ 79/lb0limit was 2 each type. I bought 3 total, as I knew I had a 4th ham already in the freezer. I also snapped up some marked down pork tewnderloins, paying $4.19/lb (I try not to exceed $4). These are also organic-awesome. 4 tenderloins=2 meals w/ planned overs. Thanksgiving turkey and Christmas ham already bought, nice.
I also bought plums, Barilla pasta (75/lb after sale n cpn), 2 pks swabs, 1 toothpaste (sale n cpn deal), 1 jar Barilla sauce-88 cents after sale n cpn, 4 16 oz P pan p butter @ $1.39, etc.
