Finally went to the grocery store
We've been running out of some essentials, so I went with DD to the store yesterday, capitalizing on some deals as well: Produce: tomaotes, head of Romaine, celery, 2 heads of cabbage *(upper cheap this time of year with St Pat's approaching), and a bag of red bliss potatoes not pictured.
Yes, we are doing a pantry and freezer challenge but I got these deals: organic beans were free after sale plus coupon, the 2 cans of soup were "reasonable" after sale plus coupon-something for DD to try as the ingredients are Ok for her. We also got a small pouch of almond butter (another freebie), 4 29 oz cans of diced tomatoes with onion/garlic and herbs (a quick pasta sauce at the ready) @ $1/can, 4 boxes Barilla pasts @ 54/box after sale plus cpn, large bottle of Ken's honey mustard dressing/sauce @$2.19, 1 Arnold oat bread @ $1.39, several pkgs of marked down meat-see next post, 1 qt vanilla yogurt, 1 gallon milk, 1/2 gallon lactose free milk, 1 pkg sliced Munster @$1.49, 18 ct eggs @ 88 cents, 1 corned beef @ $1.88/lb (the singular must buy menu item this month). I spent $66.20.
Total on groceries in March: $84.49.
Bought gas this week: $13.37
Paid a co-pay after my insurance claim was processsed, but used HSA funds to do so, leaving my bank accounts alone.
