I went a little over budget this week because I had to take advantage of a couple of good deals on ground beef and nasal strips. I was down to only four pounds of hamburger in the freezer so I needed to stock up. I could have bought even more than I did but decided not to be greedy.
The nasal strips were a bargain that I couldn't pass up. They were marked down from $6.88 per package to only $1.72 each. So, I got about a 5-month supply for not much more than I usually pay for one month's worth. I bought all five packages that they had left. HEB hasn't discontinued their brand of nasal strips but for some reason they had those tan ones on clearance and I'm pretty sure that they never had that kind before. If you recall, I bought one package of them last week for $3.44 and wondered why they were so cheap. Apparently they were marked down and this week they marked them down again even more. I usually buy the clear ones and they still have those at the usual price.
As you can see, HEB finally had quarts of heavy cream back in stock.
