The grocery budget is one area that I am working to reduce. I am going to be watching the sale ads closely. I could have done without these items, but the prices were really good. I used $9.60 of my grocery budget and this what I came home with.
The spaghetti sauce was $0.99 each if you bought four. I had one coupon that took $0.40 off of that. The oatmeal was also $0.99 each if you bought six. These are all items we use on a regular basis. I will especially use the oatmeal as the weather get cooler. I really like waking up to crock pot oatmeal on a cold, snowy winter morning. Keeping a stockpile of items bought at rock bottom prices is one way I can reduce the grocery budget.
Another way is to stretch the groceries that we already have. One of the most expensive items is meat. This week I am going to see how far I can stretch two chicken breast.
Later this week I will show how many meals I was able to get out of them. If time permits I will share some other things this week that we are doing to reduce spending. Any ideas? Please feel free to share them!
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
