This is a pic of just SOME of the grocery shopping I did this week on my new "stock up and save big/coupon clipping" freakiness. Mr. Barefoot got a little freaked out by how much I was buying, but the fact that I am in the stocking up phase and the deals I got soothed his conscience a bit.
I don't have a good price comparison between what I paid and what I saved, so I will just give you the highlights here.
41lbs pork (ribs, chops, roast) @ $1/lb = $41 I figure that was about a $75-$80 value
5, 3lb bags boneless skinless chick boobs @ $5 ea. = $25 That is a $40 value
14 boxes Rice a Roni @ $.88 ea. = $12.30 Value: approx.$21
9, 64oz bottles juice @ $1 ea. = $9 Value: approx $20
24pk toilet tissue = $5 Value: $7?
5 SoBe Life Water @ $1 ea. = $5 Value: $7.50
4, 8oz pkg cheese (some shredded, some block) @ $1 ea. = $4 Value: $11.96
2 loaves bread @ $1 ea. = $2 Value: $6.38
And on and on it went. Like I said, I ended up spending more than I had planned on, but between stocking up on the deals and getting items that we really NEEDED that weren't on sale yet I think I spent a fairly reasonable amount.
I DID splurge on the curtains, as you can see, but I think I would have just puked if we had to put up the nasty purple ones the previous owner left in the living room again. I can further justify it by stating that Big Sprout needs curtains in her room, and has had her heart set on the purple ones.
Anyway. I am proud....now I just gotta make bills!
