When we went grocery shopping yesterday, we were working with a firm fifty dollar bill. Lately, I've felt really overwhelmed with my inability to pair sales with coupons, but we're still managing!
I started my shopping at Price Chopper. I picked up these items while I was there,
I made another quick trip to Hy-Vee. Cheese and strawberries were on very good sales, but I paid full price for a few of the other items, like the syrup and cream cheese, because I needed them in order to use some of the things in our pantry. It wasn't a great trip, but I'll take it. I used up the second half of my $50 and had to dig a little bit of change out of the bottom of my purse. I always feel like I've done REALLY well when my $50 includes our 8.whatever Kansas food tax. This is what I picked up,
Our meals for this week include quesadilla pizza because Daddy ate the tortillas before we had it last week! I also made a delicious Amish Breakfast Casserole. I'll be sharing that recipe soon. We'll also have spaghetti and spinach pie, and I might make strawberry shortcake scones for a sweet treat. The best news of all is that I've finally (at least temporarily) solved our breakfast crisis. I've been making the girls fresh fruit popsicles with a little bit of yogurt, and they LOVE them. I'll be sharing a cost analysis on those in the next few days also.
