Super Saving Saturday, Cheap Lettuce

I’m really excited about the lettuce deal I found this week. I went to shop at Everyday Deals Extreme Discount not knowing how much produce would be available. Since it’s a discount grocery store it’s hit or miss whether or not they will have good produce in or not. As I was picking up 4 heads of Romaine lettuce to purchase I looked up and saw a 10 pound box of Romain lettuce for $1. I thought it was heads of lettuce so I scooped it up and into the cart it went. After all lettuce for $.1o a pound I was not going to pass it up.

When I got home I realized the lettuce was separated out into leaves and packed into this box. I’m sure I could have figured it out in the store too had I taken the time to really read the box. 🙂 It ended up being a lot of lettuce so I packed up what I thought we could eat over the next week into zipper bags and then gave the rest away to the neighbors. So all of our neighbors ended up with lettuce.

  1. It was so nice of you to share lettuce with your neighbors. 🙂 Two of our good friends asked us if we’d like to take over picking up an assortment of vegetables for them for the next 19 weeks because my girlfriend found that she was allergic to some of them. We were incredibly thankful for their generosity and said, “Yes!” I can’t wait to see what types of veggies we get each week and how we can incorporate those into our every day meals and new recipes.
