Tuesday Shopping


I got a great deal on the ground beef today at only $1.49 pound! I had enough to freeze in seven 1-pound baggies and I made twelve half-pound burger patties and froze those too.  

Details on Thursday... 

P.S. - I forgot to mention why I bought that funny looking jicama that you see in the photo. I'm planning to try Peggy's Jicama Fries recipe tomorrow. Post a comment if you've tried Peggy's recipe. I'd love to hear what you thought of them. You can find the recipe HERE

Sprouts coming to Spring

My husband just read on our neighborhood website that they're building a Sprouts Farmers Market just down the road from here less than a mile from me. It will be right on the way to Walmart and Kroger. I couldn't find anything about it on the Sprouts website but a Google search brought up THIS Facebook page about it. Now I'm glad that I never got around to checking out the other location that's a bit of a drive from here.

More clothes bargains

My husband and I went to the Treasures of the Heart charity shop together this afternoon. I didn't take any photos this time but we did VERY well. He needed something to wear to a wedding this weekend and he found two good pairs of wool trousers, a nice shirt that goes well with both of them and a tie to match the shirt. All that came to just $9.10! I bought myself a pair of blue jeans, a nightie and nine casual tops. The total for everything was just over $38.00. Jerry even said that he'd go back there with me the next time I go.

GRAND TOTAL FOR THE WEEK - $54.85


The ice cream was requested by my husband and it was on sale for the lowest price I've seen it in many, many years. I didn't figure this into my budget for this week, but I ended up getting a full refund today at Kroger for the two cartons of eggs that I bought last week. You see, they had cartons of 18 eggs on sale 2/$3.00 last week but they rang up at $1.99 each. For my inconvenience, they refunded the entire $3.98 that I paid. My total for this week would be $50.87 after the refund.
