Grocery shopping was done after the roads had been salted and sanded. Finally the sun came out yesterday. We had about an inch of ice coating our trees and roads on Sunday evening. We could not even see out of our windows the ice was so thick. Then on Monday we got about 4 inches of snow. For we in the Buffalo area, this was really nothing.
My son, DIL, and granddaughter went home on Saturday because they were supposed to get hit with a huge snowstorm starting on Sunday. My son and his family also were watching the weather and they went home from NH on Saturday also.
My granddaughter had yesterday and today off from school. She is delighted. My DIL also has had these days off because of the snow. They ended up with 22 inches of snow. I am happy that they are all cozy and warm at home and that I didn’t have to worry about them traveling home in bad weather.
But yesterday, I was able to maneuver the roads and go to Top’s. This is what I purchased:
Fresh Haddock – $ 8.79
6 Hass Avocados – $ .79 each – Used 2 $.75/3 cpns. that doubled = $ .29 each = $ 1.74
3 Black Olives – 3/$5.00
1 dozen Organic Eggs – $ 3.99
2 SF Cool Whip – $ 2.19 each = $ 4.38
1 Half & Half – $ 2.69
1 Box of SF Popsicles – $ 4.99
1 Riced Cauliflower – $ 2.89
1 Large GG Mashed Cauliflower – $ 5.49
1 Gallon of Distilled Water – $ 1.00
1 bag of Skinny Pop – $ 5.49
Total OOP after 6% Senior Discount($ 2.97) was $43.50 including $ .02 tax.
Hubby loves haddock and I love salmon. I am still using the salmon that I purchased at half off for $3.84 back in July.
The Hass avocados were a great deal at $.79 each but even better when my DIL found me coupons for $.75/3 that doubled. I have been going without avocados because I refused to pay $ 2.50 each for them. The olives will be used for a meat and cheese platter that we are taking to a Christmas party soon.
I was almost out of eggs so I got a dozen. I only had one half & half in the freezer and we drink a lot of coffee. SF Cool whip was needed to go with our dessert of SF jello. SF popsicles and the Skinny Pop are my guilty pleasures once in a while. I love these cauliflower products. They are so yummy as a side dish. The water was needed for a medical device.
I am back down to spending about $ 50. each week and I am hoping to lower that in 2020. We have so much food in our pantry, fridge, and freezers that we are eating out of them continually and just filling in with what is needed each week.
Did you get any great deals this past week? Please share with all of us.
