Super Saving Saturday, Cheap Potatoes and More

I didn’t need too much from the store this week. We needed some regular milk for the cat and myself. I had purchased some milk but I had to throw it away. It went bad three days before the expiration date. I’ve had that happen to me twice now. I hate throwing food away. I really should have taken it back, since it was before the expiration date. Has anyone else noticed milk isn’t keeping until the date on it?

I didn’t find any great deals this week. I just picked up what we really needed and left it at that. Although I did find a great deal on red potatoes. I purchased a 50 pound box for $6.79. That’s just $.14/lb. Not too bad at all. I’m going to be working them into our meals over the next few weeks. I have them stored in the garage where it’s dark and cool so they should keep well too.

If they sprout, I’ll have to plant some in the garden. I probably should share a few with the neighbors too. Our neighbor brought us a dozen eggs this week too. Which was so nice of them, it’s great to have such nice neighbors.

I also stopped at the Franz bread store and picked up 5 loaves of organic bread for just $5.


That brings my total for this week to $24.05. I hoping this week will bring a few good deals on meat. I would love to find beef on sale in the form of a roast, since we are out. If we had more room in the freezer I would purchase a meat pack from the meat market, but right now we just don’t have the room.


What deals did you find this week while out shopping?


Sharing is caring!

    1. Fun treats with birthday coupons sound like a great deal! My grocery budget has been low these last few weeks but I need to make a trip to stock up soon. I was just hoping for a few better buys before I resort to doing a big shopping trip at Winco Foods. ๐Ÿ™‚
