The food spending last week?
And speaking of DEALS, here is most of what I got for that $12.37....
I bought 7 boxes of oatmeal($1.66 ea. on sale) + 3 bags of house brand frozen veggies($1.25 ea., not pictured), which subtotaled $15.37. After 7 x $1 Qs and the $5 instant discount($12 off), I paid $3.37 for 7 oatmeals and 3 veggies(or .34¢ for each of 10 items).
While I was down the cereal aisle, store employees were changing around the coffee section located across from the oatmeal section. By the time I was finished shopping and headed to the register, the clearance bin I walked by at the front of the store to check out was filled with bags of coffee. I don't drink this stuff but Hubs is addicted to it so I nosed around in the bin. New England Coffee, Starbucks and Eight O'Clock brands were marked down to $3 a bag. Sell by/Use by dates were 2 years out. I went back to the coffee section and it looks like the New England brand has changed the color of the bags and they were no longer carrying this particular Starbucks and the Eight O'Clock varieties(very small store with limited selections), so that explains why it was in the bin. I also wanted to check the regular price to make sure that $3 a bag was a "deal".....I told you I don't know anything about coffee!lol
They sell for $7.95 a bag at this store.
So I "scooped" up 3 bags for Hubs and dinged my grocery budget for $9.
Now I know everyone is thinking, "Gee Sluggy, why the heck did you buy 7 boxes of oatmeal, since you won a year's supply from Price Chopper last Fall? Isn't that enough for you??"
Actually, it's not enough. I gave boxes to the B in-law and #1 Son, plus we've gone through a case already. The only oatmeal we will have left when the year is out will be some of the canisters of whole oats since nobody thinks to make those for breakfast and I don't have a wide repertoire of recipes using oats.
So the food spending for January as of Saturday, sits at $261.21, leaving me $138.79 to get through the rest of the month......ok, the rest of the month would be 5 days. lol
As for leftovers rolling into this week--there are beets, ginger carrots, beef tips and gravy and noodles. Not much to use up.
Here is what is getting served this week.....
Monday--Pizza or Leftover KFC or Beef Tips
Tuesday--Steak dinner out(birthday meal)
Wednesday--Italian dinner out(birthday freebie)
Friday--Ham and Bean Soup, homemade breadSaturday--Not sure, leftovers, fend for yourself
Only 2 meals this week, since we are finishing the Birthday freebies this week. The KFC is courtesy of a gift certificate for a 12 pce. meal I won at the Church auction. Wed. dinner is courtesy of a local Italian restaurant birthday club and I get a free appetizer on Tues. when I have my Birthday dinner out. There will be money spent but from the Entertainment budget.
Needed at the store to serve the 2 meals I am making this week?I'll need celery, potatoes, mushrooms(Daughter bought on Sunday), and I might need more onions.
Not much needed this week but there is a Pet Food Catalina Deal at Weis which I need to do, so there goes $30 up front after Qs(will give me a $10 Cat for later too). I'll try to keep the spending under $50 this week.
I'll be going to my 2 grocery stores this week to note prices for the new Price Book.
What's on your menu for the week? Any good deals at the grocers this week?
Did you have any food waste this week?
