PRODUCE MARKET-–Spent $34.00.
Grocery Saving Tip: Check local produce stands and ethnic markets. They often have much lower prices on certain items than chain stores. I was able to get boneless, skinless chicken breasts for $1.69/lb, the roast for $3.29/lb, 10 lb bag of potatoes for $2.99, cantaloupe for $.99, pineapples for $1.99 and more!
This is an unusual week. We have lots of food in the freezer and pantry from previous weeks, and a friend gave us two small hams, 3 bags of salad, 8 yogurt cups, 3 containers of hummus, 2 containers of beef broth, some cereal and some cranberries. I may go to the store to pick up some milk and cheese (which I will add to next week’s total), but so far we don’t need anything else.
By planning our meals around what we already have, I am saving lots of money this week.
Weekly Total: $34.00
