In addition to the mid-week trip to the store for some cheap pasta and other deals, I made a regular shopping trip on Saturday, since we were out of milk. I stocked up on supplies for the week, as well as many other things. I did my trip at Giant Eagle and saved a good amount. I was able to get 3 packs of Kraft Singles for $2.50 ($.63/ea), 4 boxes of Green Giant Vegetables for Free and 4 large cans of crushed tomatoes for $1 ($.25/ea). I also picked up a deal that they had on frozen pizzas. I used a number of coupons that I had that were expiring on Monday, including some free coupons that I had. I learned though, that they no longer accept internet printables over $3 and they do not accept internet printables of Free or Buy One Get One Free coupons. I was a little disappointed with this and returned the orange juice and bagel chips that I was planning to buy. I will have to pick those items up elsewhere.
Once again, some of the free turkey products have returned to my menu planning. I picked up some more to restock the freezer over break. There is turkey in the Skyline Chili, the tacos, and the turkey meatloaf.
Chili and Cornbread
Chicken Gravy over Biscuits
Most days, it is cereal for breakfast for everyone. As for lunch, my son will either buy or pack, based on the menu for that day. I tend to pack. My husband will do a bit of both.
