In an attempt to save gasoline, I bundled a few errands yesterday. I went to get my booster shot at Walmart. My plan was to make a quick shop in the store but it was very crowded so I quickly left.
I went elsewhere to pick up some on sale meat, items for company that we will have the end of the month, and some treats for Hubby and I for the rest of the winter.
So on to Top’s I went. I got 9 of the Voortman’s SF cookies that Hubby and I love. They were on sale for $ 3.19 each. The Red Chocolate Bar was Free with an E-coupon that Top’s sent me. It has less calories and less sugar. It will be eaten when we need just a little piece of chocolate. The Queen Anne Cherry Cordials are for company and the fudge pops are for anyone who wants one.
Then I stopped at Aldi’s where I purchased 2 dozen eggs for $ 1.29 each( lowest price I could find), a quart of half and half creamer, a quart of heavy whipping cream, turkey tenderloins, a seasoned chuck roast that was on sale for $ 5.99 a lb. which totaled $ 14.50, some salami, prosciutto, and black forest ham, 2 sea salt Pita Chips, and some Artisan Flatbread.
The cold cuts will be used to make some antipasto which Hubby loves for brunch. This Flatbread makes the best pizza in just 9 minutes. So when we just have to have a cheat day, this is what we make. We love these turkey tenderloins and they are so easy. I just roast them in the toaster oven. The chuck roast will be cooked in the crock pot or Instant Pot when we are craving stew. Both meats will make many meals for us.
Now that it is snowy and freezing cold out, we will stay home as much as we can. I don’t like driving in the ice and snow. So we will only go out for doctor appointments and haircuts. We may be able to use Tele-Health for some of the doctor appointments and haircuts can be cancelled and rescheduled if it is a bad snow day.
I subscribe to Walmart Plus for grocery delivery so we will use that if we need a grocery order. It also includes free shipping on walmart.com so I can get some items that way. I also use Amazon when I have a large enough order. I actually have some shipped orders coming today. I will show you those tommorrow.
The only time I will go out for food is if there is a rock bottom meat sale that I must stock up with and the roads are clear.
So do you avoid driving as much as possible in the winter? Did you get any good buys this week?

I was in a massive snow accident in my freshman year at college. Ever since that day, I don’t drive in the snow. My car (a ’66 convertible baby blue mustang) folded like an accordion. With me in it! We spun into a snowbank on the ice.
Cured me driving in the snow for like forever!
We just did our last shopping haul for December also. I still need some fish for Christmas Eve. That I can get soon and store in the freezer.
I got some good buys too at Aldi. I love when they put this little $2 OFF and $1 OFF stickers on some meats. Those are the best buys IMHO.
Yikes! That would have terrified me.
Yeah on your last shopping haul. Enjoy that fish and your holidays. Those stickers are the best but I rarely see them anymore. When I do, they go in my cart.
Hi AD. I think the Walmart Plus is a good idea for you guys instead of Amazon Prime. At some point I may look into it, but for now we are keeping our Costco membership instead.
It works very well for us! We don’t have Costco yet but we should as soon as they build here.
