This morning I went raspberry picking. I picked a half flat of raspberries. The price per pound was $1.50/lb. So my half flat of raspberries ended up costing $4.50. We had some with lunch and I sent a quart home with my husband’s dad and we have the raspberries pictured below to eat over the next few days.

My total spending for this week came to $38.31. Which puts me under budget again this week. I need to get my menu plan ready for the next 5 weeks done soon. So I am sure to have a big shopping trip to Winco Foods. I have found that if I stockpile any good deals as I find them along with shopping at Winco Foods for the staple items I need or items I need but have not found on sale recently that I can keep my grocery cost down.
What is you best strategy for keep you grocery cost down?
