I only shopped at 2 stores this week! It’s a miracle, but kind of a welcomed relief. I’m using up some of the items in my pantry and some leftover stuff I didn’t use last week- like the second spaghetti squash. I have a good eye for picking out the biggest produce, but not so much using it all up!
I spent a lot of money on chicken this week, which all went in the freezer. It was on sale for $1.69 a pound and I was running low! We also splurged a bit at Meijer- darn that clearance Halloween candy! I told myself no more, but somehow they ended up in my basket. At least I got some pumpkin Nature Valley bars on clearance to try; I’m still in Try-Pumpkin-Everything Mode! Here are the deals I was able to score this week:
