It’s the start of March! Since the baby is due at the end of this month, I don’t anticipate shopping every week this month. I started this month off simply – with one grocery trip to Meijer. We’re eating some things from the freezer so that makes my menu planning simpler. It was so nice to have a hot dinner of pork chops and refrigerator mashed potatoes, even after a long day at school. Yay for freezer cooking! Here’s what I bought at Meijer this week.
They were running several great frozen deals this week. Frozen vegetables were $0.88 a bag. Steamables were the same price, but those bags were 4 ounces smaller. I decided to get more for my money and went with the regular bags. All frozen potatoes were $1.67 a bag, so I restocked the freezer with fries and tator tots, as well as hash browns for potato casserole.
There was a promotion to “Buy 5, Get $5 off” so I did that. Kashi was included in that sale for $1.99, plus I had a coupon for $1/2. The $1.49 a box is the best price I will ever see on Kashi, and I’ve been enjoying these cereals for breakfast (and snacks) this week. The Eggo waffles were also included in that sale and came out to $1.49 a box. That is even better than the good deal I thought I was getting the other week! Waffles are nice for a quick breakfast during the school week.
I picked up my free M&Ms at the checkout but haven’t tried them yet. At Meijer, I spent $22.63 this week.
Oh! I almost forgot. I picked up some snacks for school over the weekend at Save-a-Lot and bought a bottle of syrup for $1.89. I’ll add that to my monthly total which brings my shopping for March to $24.52. That leaves me with plenty of room in my monthly $180 budget! That is always nice. Did you find any good deals this week?
