What to Cook for Dinner?
Last week I did a shopping haul video for my trip to Everyday Deals and Winco Foods. I found some good deals on that shopping trip. I found a few good deals on canned good at Winco foods and a few discounted items at Everyday Deals.
This week I went out to Costco. Sometimes I can find some great buys in the Costco coupon book and other times it’s full of things we just don’t buy. This trip they had some great buys in the coupon book on things we were getting low on so it was a good time to buy.
I also picked up a box of corndogs a favorite of my son for quick and easy lunches, for when we don’t have leftovers. I also picked up a bag of Tyson breaded chicken tenders. I saw they were dairy free and thought they would make for an easy dinner or quick lunches on the weekends when we don’t usually have leftovers. I’ve found if I purchase a few convenience items to have tucked away in the freezer it helps to keep us from eating out and in turn, save us money. Because the convenience foods are less expensive than eating out. Just so you know the Tyson chicken tenders were really yummy!

I was happy to find the peanut butter on sale. We really weren’t that low on peanut butter but because it was a good buy I purchased the limit of 2 two jar packs of peanut butter. The Hillshire Farm Ham was another good buy working out to be just $3.19 per pound, which is a better buy than the lunchmeat I purchased last week at Winco Foods for $3.95/lb.
I have items I regularly purchase at Costco because they work out to be less than the regular grocery store. The coupons that were available this trip made it even less expensive to stock up. It’s easy to go overboard at Costco but I find if I go in and just purchase the items I need and avoid looking around, I can get out with what I need and stay on budget too.
