Notes on Fridays shopping

I was surprised to find out that I could have vegetarian refried beans and low sodium beans as well. All of the canned goods were at least a buck a can off. That ads up fast. I got ten refried beans, 10 diced tomatoes and 10 beans. They had garbanzo beans too so five of them were garbanzo beans. My daughter likes humus. I spent 15.00. I saved over thirty dollars from the regular price-- I paid 33 percent on the dollar.

Another way to look at it is that no bank is ever in this day and age going to give you 67 percent interest on your money.

The more meat skyrockets in price, the more recipes we will see for token meat dishes and rice and beans. I so far, am seeing meat on sale for a reasonable amount. Certainly, it is not as cheap as this summer, but it isn't too outrageous yet.

Meals from the ads
