This is another week of “How much can I stock up with my money?”. I had saved some money to buy frozen vegetables, but 2 weeks in a row Meijer was sold out; so I’ve been in a huge surplus figuring out what else to buy. Luckily, Sam’s Club and Big Lots are always more than willing to take my money! We’re also eating out twice this week, so that’s definitely helped save some money on the grocery budget.
Best buys this week include chicken at $1.60 a pound, peanut butter $2.00 off for Sam’s Instant Savings event (it’s John’s favorite snack, so these should last awhile), and the pumpkin yogurt cups. Those actually weren’t on sale, but I saw my friend Stephanie had one and I had to bust out the Fall celebrations rather early!
