|Bean Burgers are a great way to get non-meat protein. |
Just don't try to trick anyone by claiming they are beef!
I bought beef - both steaks and a roast, some fish, chickens, pepperoni, pasta sauce, sugar, flour, butter and more butter, strawberries for jam, condiments, yeast and more.
|We spent a little more week-to-week on produce, but we had some really nice meals!|

I started the month with $241.68 in the grocery budget, spent $143.79 on stock-up items, and just over $22 a week on items we needed week-to-week, like milk and produce. All of that combined put me over by $18.10, so I will begin April with $161.90

We have the Easter sales posted now. Cook's shank ham is .99 a pound, and I have a coupon that will double to give me $1 off the total price of the ham. I have a few of those coupons, but I will likely only purchase one ham, because I have almost two whole hams in the freezer right now. I will also be able to get a little more butter for .99 a pound, so I will do that as well. Potatoes are 1.49 for a 10 pound bag - more than I'm used to paying (they have been going on sale for .99/bag), but still a good price. As far as items I just need to stock, I will need to get some of the minced garlic that comes in a jar. I'm not aware of anything else at this time, but I will be re-working the pantry this month, which will give me a chance to do a good inventory.
What deals will you be looking for this month?
