Publix B 2013-07-19

PUBLIX Part 1 

Publix had some good deals this week, so I did most of my shopping there.

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.

My stock-up items for this week included:

Ken’s Salad Dressing for $1.80 per bottle

Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil for $5.88 per 32 oz. bottle

32 ounce bags of frozen vegetables for $3.00 each

Applegate Farms All Natural Lunch Meat $4.00 each (reg. $4.49). (This is more than I like to pay for lunch meat, but it has no sugar and tastes WAY better than the Hormel Naturals lunch meat we have been buying.)

Publix 2013-07-19

PUBLIX Part 2--Total Spent $100.66.  

I was also able to purchase Cascadian Farms Organic Granola for just $1.88 per box after the sale and a coupon on the box. We normally make our own Crockpot Granola (recipe here), but this was a good price for our area, so I bought it.

Grocery Saving Tip: Plan your weekly menu around super sale items.

The Eat Smart Veggies were on sale for $1.67 each again this week, so we have raw veggies with ranch dressing, Easy Chicken Stir Fry (recipe here), Broccoli Slaw Salad (recipe here) and Veggie Breakfast Scramble (recipe here) on the menu for the week.

  

Walmart A 2013-07-19

WALMART–Total Spent $45.98.

Grocery Saving Tip: Use Walmart’s Ad Match Guarantee.

I price matched the following:

pint grape tomatoes $1.19 each

cantaloupe $1.39

pork chops $1.49/lb

boneless skinless chicken breasts $1.79/lb

onions $.39/lb

3 lb bag of California navel oranges $2.99

 

Weekly Total: $146.64 

Monthly Total: $436.81 

($125/week budget for six people, so I am over again this week. I am hoping to get back on track next week, but because I was over two weeks in a row, it is highly unlikely that I will be within the budget for the month. We will see what happens.)

Does the applegate lunch meat have nitrates? Hormel was the only brand I knew of without it.

I’m already over for the month :/ Not only is there another shopping day next week but we are going out of town and stopping at whole foods and trader joe’s while we are there since there is nothing in our area like that. Must. Have. Self. Control.

We do have hog and venison in the freezer so I’m hoping to use that a lot during the month of August to come under budget to make up for this month (I’m not even sure what happened… )
