Okay, so I got my coupons ready headed to my mom’s only swim party and then I thought why not go to the store without the kids before I go home. I have $61.26 left to spend this week and I went into Food Lion and they had a great sale on meat so I stockpiled for next week. I got a London Broil for $4.24 (which I could make two meals out of), Chicken breast for $2.24, and enough ribs for $.99LB to make two meals. These are super in the crock pot add 1/2 cup of water and you favorite BBQ sauce and leave it on for 6-8 hours on low. YUMMY!!! I work part -time because I get the pleasure of helping an amazing little boy with special needs. The days I do work I do a crock pot meal so my husband will not eat cereal for dinner.
My trip wasn’t so wonderful as far as savings goes I spent $45.42 and I saved $30.17. I did buy 21 items and one was dog food and another was organic diapers. I still have $15.84 and I need to buy fresh mozzarella cheese $4, spinach $4, Tomatoes $6.00. ( I use the tomatoes with the mozzarella cheese for lunch and then I use the tomatoes in my special sauce so it looks like I will be around a buck below budget.
I know not a lot but I did get a couple of meals already for next week by buying the meat in this weeks’ budget. I know those prices are pretty good at 50% off or more so I am going to freeze them for next week that way I can stockpile other items if I need to.
Final prices are in (This is what I paid)
