We made the trek to the next town and went to Rite Aid and Fred Meyers. I really scored at Rite Aid.
I usually don't buy soda except at holiday time. We like root beer. When I was a child, that's the only soda my dad would allow in the house. A special treat was root beer float. I got root beer for .10 a two liter bottle. With up rewards, four pair of panties were less than five bucks including tax.
On to Fred Meyers. Christmas oranges were a good price, and flour was on sale. Holidays are a good time to stock baking supplies. I opened my last back up org flour, so I picked some more up. Jello products were a buck. lotts of bucks coffee makes a lemon pound cake. The recipe for the wanta be is on the Internet. My daughter and I made ot last year. We figured we made about 212.00 an hour making it at home instead of. Using it at That other place. Milk was 1.25 a half gallon. Green beans were .50. Coffee pods were on sale and I had coupons. I get two cups from a pod and it's really convenient for company.
Yesterday we went out to a house party. We had a wonder dinner of a stuffed chicken breast with cheese and Canadian bacon, rice, salad, and green beans with almonds and rolls. Desert was yummy caramel flan, and a pistatisio desert.
You can have some convenience food when you budget and get most of what you buy for 1/2 price. I am still running about sixty dollars a week, and.building a stock for three adults. I haven't checked the stats from the USDA lately, but considering the increased price of meat and vegetables I don't think we are far off.
