Food costs have been insanely expensive but last week I caught an amazing sale! When sales are offered that are that good it’s time to stock up. One piece of advice is don’t be afraid to pre-order sale items especially meat. When I saw the sale ad I called and ordered 20 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast and good thing I did because they ran out of it on Friday!
Here is what I got with the sale:
2-5lb bags white potatoes $5.00
3 pints blueberries $7.49
6 pk flavored water $1.00
2 cans Campbell's chicken noodle soup $2.00
2-24pk Eggo waffles $5.98
4 packs Sugardale bacon $15.96
1-6pk Thomas's bagels $3.50
4-4lb bags sugar $7.96
approx 20 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts $40.92
3-16 oz containers sour cream $2.97
Grand Total $92.78!
After I got home I got to work repackaging and freezing the bacon and chicken breasts with my vacuum sealer.
I kind of fell off the wagon last month with our food. We went out a lot because after 3 months of doing mostly home cooking I needed a break I guess. Well I am back on the home cooking wagon this month so here are some of the things I have made so far:
I am hoping to share more recipes this month and as we go into the holiday season I’ll also share some tips and tricks to get you through the most wonderful time of the year. (You get my tiny bit of sarcasm there right? lol!)
How are you all doing with grocery prices right now? I am glad I got a lot of canning done this year. We will enjoy that all winter! -MM

We are buying sales only at this point and shopping the pantry.
Great haul! Don’t you just love those vacuum sealers?
we always stock pile when we see something on special offer. And chicken breasts & bacon are so versatile!
