Ok, so lately I have been going way over my budget for the groceries for the week, so you are probably thinking I shouldn't have a "frugal" blog, but honestly I have just been getting such amazing deals that even though I'm spending alot this week, in the next few weeks there should be a HUGE drop in my spending!
I have decided to try my hand at Once a Month cooking - so I needed some chicken breast and Randalls had them for $1.88/lb which seemed like a good price to me, so off I went. I ended up getting close to 17 lbs, so I shouldn't need to get more chicken for a while, but I'm probably not going to be able to pass up the 4lb bags of frozen chicken breast on sale at Randalls this week for $1.44/lb.
One other thing I wanted to mention, was this was another time I was SO glad I had my coupon binder with me. I found Jennie-O Italian sausage on price cut for $0.99 each!!! These were originally $5 each, and with my $1/2 coupons - I got each package for $0.50! Seriously keep your eyes peeled at Randalls for their price mark-downs.
Chicken Breast - $32.31 (close to 17lbs)
Jennie-O Italian Sausage - $0.99 ea. - $1/2 coupons (used 2) = $0.49 ea.
-$10 catalina (got from previous charmin/bounty PG promotion)
saved: $27.65 or 53%
