Winco , Alberways, and qfc

I had to take granddaughter to summer school orientation,   So I went to Winco to pick up a few things we ate before they got to the meal plan day,  

Cucumbers were .38
They were having a pork sale, flyers are on the entry way,   Along with coupons for johnsonville your money, out family didn't like them.  lol pork loin for 1.38 is a bargain,   

Suddenly salad was 1.18 and I had a .55 coupon on 2. 
 Yoplait yogurt was .50 and I had a coupon for .50 on five.   Grandpa bought a frozen yogurt for granddaughter in Edmonds,  it was a yoplait yogurt they had put on the freezer for 2.50.    I believe in origins , but who needs 600 percent!   

Tater tots were two pounds for 128.   

Beans are .48.   


Five dollar Friday's 
Ritz crackers 3/5$$

.80 when you buy 10

Pasta sauce 
Refried beans 

Ragu. 1.29@@
Red Barron 3/10@@

Draper valley whole chickens .99
Tomatoes .99
Zucchini .99
Buns 4/5 - cheaper at Winco

About it.   

This weeks rotation would be draper valley chicken, ( WA grown, but nit as desireabke as Foster farms)  or pork loin for 1.38 at Winco.   

Groceries on the cheap is looking at the Put Dinner On The Table meal train from a different
 pro sypective.  The emphasis is on purchasing good food( shelf- stable/ freezer staples )at the lowest possible cost and purchasing enough to last you until it goes on sale again -- Keeping a controlled non-perishable stock of the things you use on a regular basis. It means that when you shop, rather than purchasing just what you need for a day or a week, you  buy a loss leader protein, produce you will 
need on sale, a stock item if it's a RBP, and dairy instead.    This allows you to put well balanced meals 
on the table consistently  for a four dollar a day budget per person.   You spend more time on the 
planning and shopping end of the meal train and less on the cooking end by cooking efficiently.    

Four dollars a day is the target amount for people on snap.   My premise is that of you can do it on four dollars a day, spending more isn't hard.   You still get more bang for your buck.
