*I did not plan to buy any meat this week, but always check the sale meat for good deals.  These are the meat that’s sale by date is today.  You need to either immediately cook this meat or immediately freeze it.  I always portion it out and freeze it for later use.  With the price of meat so high right now, it is nice to save some money by checking the manager’s specials.

So there it is!  I am so happy with my deals and savings.  I also received a number of Catalina coupons from the grocery store that will come in very handy!  I did spend more than I had wanted to.  I think we have enough stocked up, so next week’s goal will be to stay way under budget and just buy what we need.  I hope to have some money from the grocery budget left over next week so we can carry it over and stock up more in two weeks!

Did you find any great deals today?
