This month has been a little harder than most. We use http://www.angelfoodministries.com/ for our food and they decided instead of Alabama picking up their orders the middle of the month, we will began picking them up the end of the month. So that was 2 weeks to be accounted for in there. This is a great way to save on your grocery bill by the way!
Also, when we get our tax refund we usually restock on some things to last for another year or so. We have not had a cow slaughtered this year so we are a little short on meat compared to usual. Also we did not get our freezer stocked with as much venison as normal.
Needless to say we are going to be over budget this month, but that's okay. At least we have the cash and it will not be on a credit card!!! Can I get an AMEN? I found some great sales yesterday at our local Piggly Wiggly. they cut their own meat as well as grind it and they carry only black angus, so we love their meat department.
This is what I got:
2 family pk. Center Cut pork Chops $1.98 lb
2 med. pk. Ground Round reduced to $1.79 lb
2 Sirloin Tip Roast $1.99 lb
2 1/2 lb. Red and White seedless grapes $1.59 lb
Hot Dogs bogo
2 Nutty bars .89
10 lb. bacon $10
chocolate ice cream $1.59 half gal.
4 lg. bell pepper reduced $1
I paid 55.63 ans saved about $45. I thought that was excellent. I am very tickled to be able to stock a little in the freezer!
Do you stock your freezer too? What do you put in it?
