Grocery Shopping This Past Week

I needed to go grocery shopping yesterday not only because we needed a couple of things but because it was Senior Discount Day (6% off). This is what I purchased at Top’s:

4 jars of Ragu Spaghetti Sauce – $ .75 each after Q’s = $ 3.00

4 Kummelweck rolls – $ .75 each = $ 3.00

1 Bag of Ruffles – $ 1.99 after Q

1/2 lb of Virginia Baked Ham – $ 3.36

1/2 lb. of Charlie The Butcher Roast Beef – $ 6.59- comes with free au jus

5 pkgs. of Jimmy Dean Bacon – $ 17.98 after B2G3F 

4 pkgs. of Taco Seasoning – Free after Q’s

1 Celery – $ .88 after Q

24 ct. Large Eggs – $ 1.99

1 Land of Lakes Cream Cheese – $ .99 after Q

1 Box of Microwave Popcorn – $ 2.99 

Total was $ 39.93 after 6% discount.

This is the cheapest spaghetti sauce that I have seen in a long time. When I don’t have time to make homemade for West, it will come in handy.

The rolls were for beef on a weck sandwiches for dinner last night. And yes, I ate a roll- the 2nd one that I have eaten in 8 months. This is my very favorite sandwich and since my blood work numbers were so beautiful yesterday, I celebrated. But it will probably be another 4 – 5 months before I eat any bread again.

The chips and celery were purchased for Thanksgiving. Hubby wanted the cold cuts for his lunches. We use a lot of bacon for Sunday family breakfasts. Eggs were a great price and I was down to 2 dozen. I use a lot of cream cheese. Hubby wanted the popcorn for snacks.

I have a busy day so I need to hard boil a dozen eggs for my breakfasts. Then I will go out to the Post Office to make a return and to Kohl’s to use up some Kohl’s cash. We have a snowstorm coming tomorrow so I want to get these things done. 

Did you get any good deals this past week?

That was a fantastic price on sauce. I also keep it on hand for nights when I just can't pull together the real thing.

My big win at the store was finding 1 lb packages of 97% lean ground beef marked down to $.25 this weekend. I bought four, and pointed it out to another shopper, who was looking for less expensive meat. I wanted to clear the shelves, but shared instead. 🙂

Hi HP,

I don't know that I would have been so generous with that $.25 a lb. ground beef. I would like to think I would have. But may God Bless you for sharing.

Honestly, I was so tempted! I live in a neighborhood where most people have plenty of money, but there are also elderly people on a tight budget, so I do try to be a friendly but frugal shopper. This one was really hard for me, though. 😉
