Now that I am moving and trying to eat up all the food storage in my house--will be too pricey to move it--instead of listing best prices every week I will be reporting on what I had to purchase to supplement my food storage each week. I plan on tracking my savings--the difference between my grocery budget and actual expenditure--and spending it once I get to Hawaii to rebuild what I can of my food storage. My kids, however, are scheming to use the savings to buy surfboards.
This week I purchased:
5# bananas $3.50: for lunches smoothies and because Afton was sick and needed something soft and nutritious.
10# apples $6.50: for lunches.
1 30ct pkg tortillas $3.25: for bean and cheese burritos, no time to make homemade this week.
16oz Darigold sour cream 50 cents: didn't need it but couldn't resist the deal.
2 cans of Darigold whipping cream 50 cents each at Saar's: again, didn't need it but couldn't resist the awesome deal!
2 gallons of milk $5
Grand total $20.25
My Hawaii food storage savings/surfboard account now has a beginning total of $39.75. A good start.
