Grocery Saving Tip: Base your weekly menu on items you have on hand plus sale items.
Thanks to using lots of food from my pantry and freezer in our menu for this week, I had extra money in the budget that I used to stock up on sale-priced juice.
With the weather getting warmer, my kids will be asking for popsicles, and making them with juice makes them a little healthier. I also make a healthier version of soda, by mixing the cranberry pomegranate juice with seltzer water.
Grocery Saving Tip: When an item is on sale at its lowest price, buy as much as you can afford and use before it expires.
I was also able to stock up a little on this natural dried fruit and nut mix that we will take with us on busy days to avoid the drive through.
PUBLIX--Total Spent $89.37.
Grocery Saving Tip: Buy unadvertised sale items when they are at the lowest price for your area.
I found the 10 lb bag of potatoes priced at just $3.00.We will use some potatoes this week and some next week.
