Here is what I bought at the grocery store on Monday.....
1 bag of taters....$2.99
1 bunch of celery....$.99
2 small rutabagas....$4.32
2 packs of mushrooms...$3.00
1 bag of parsnips....$2.99
1 gallon milk....$3.76
I used my $10 food certificate so paid $8.05 out of pocket.
I forgot I needed to buy mushrooms for my stuffing and the parsnips were marked up higher than I thought they would be(such a small bag too!).
Between that and the milk, it put me well over the $10 I could get for free.
Oh well.....not too too bad really.
And I am well below my food budget for the month. It stands at the moment at $210.70 spent of $400 budgeted.
It about killed me seeing some good deals in the store on Monday but not taking advantage of them due to my self-imposed spending limit until Thanksgiving.
I'll probably go back on Friday or Saturday though to scoop up some deals at the market.
At least it will be nice and peaceful and deserted there, since everyone will be at the MALL this weekend fighting over Black Friday crap.
Yep, I'll just get some grocery store food deals and stay home.
Ok....maybe I'll go to Rite-Aid or better yet, CVS to get rain checks for all those freebies they have this week. That's what SonyaAnn is going to do and I think that's a very good idea! 8-)
Now let the cooking begin! ;-)
