Packing the Pantry

I stocked up this week! The sales weren't great, but I think I ended up doing pretty good. First I went to Aldi...and I spent $22.42! I got several things we needed like... napkins, flour, sandwich bags, and lemons. I stocked up on some of the produce couldn't beat those prices. I also needed lunch stuff for my husband.

Ok, so the avocados were on sale for $.59 each! I got several because I LOVE me some avocado. I mean...yummy GUACAMOLE, it doesn't get any better than that. Does it???

Next stop was Meijer...and you won't believer what I found! Remember how I love that good old reduced rack? Well, I strolled by there as I usually do and I hit the jackpot...AVOCADOS! Six of them for $.40!!!! I had just bought 3 at Aldi, but I couldn't leave these behind. $.40!!!! Unheard of I tell you! I just may turn green after all 9 of these avocado's this week.

I stocked up on chicken, Lysol, and brie. I also picked up some stuff to make guacamole (cilantro, lime, and onion). I also bought some Panko bread crumbs for some freezer cooking chicken. I am excited, I have been wanting to try Panko for a while.

My total at Meijer was $21.97!!!

I spent a total of $44.39 this week. I had some money leftover the past few weeks, so I spent a little extra.

I guess it is time to share my total cow fund input for the month of April....$13.46!!!

I know, I know, it isn't that impressive this month. I have $212.35 in the cow fund now, plus a lot of change. There were a lot of good deals this month and we really stocked up both the freezer and the pantry!

Wow, what a great deal on those avocados! You sure are a hard act to follow when it comes to frugal shopping. :)

Yummy! Just finished my sweet and sour meatballs. Easy to fix. Very filling. Son & I enjoyed it very much. I do think it was a bit on the sweet side so I will tame that back a bit next time I make them. AND, I'm a noodle kinda girl over rice and will be doing that as well. I know, rice especially brown is much better but well, I'm the one that has to work it off my butt. For me it's worth it to have noodles.

I have gained a lot from your site. For the first time in a long time I actually have complete meals in the freezer instead of just packages of meat on sale. Nice to pick a bag and not have to decide what to do with it!! Thank you!! Look forward to the guacamole recipe when you can.
