Popcorn is a standard snack in our house cause it's healthier than chips and cookies.
We got pop secret on sale the other week for $1 per 3 pk box. I stocked up and bought 10 boxes.
Last night we dropped $115 at Wally world and $20 at Harris Teeter. Walmart includes 3 gallons of milk, $10 for paint rollers, $5 for makeup, $5 for dog stuff, $10 for brooms, plus more birthday stuff and other extras. I can't believe my son is a year old today. At Harris Teeter, they had whole chickens for .57/lb. We bought 4 @ about $2.50 each, plus some other stuff.
Total for the week, >$140, and we won't be hungry.
Hey, I just got back from HT and bought 6 of those chickens! I had to stock on their bleach sale too. $.99 per jug for Clorox!
Food Lion had Edy's ice cream on sale for $1.99, 3 day special, stocked up on that too!
Saving money on groceries is a fun game for me.
yes, but heating bills will kill ya... we have an outdoor wood boiler...it burns near 25 cords of wood per winter...about $2000 per yr if you bought it, we figure $1000 for cost of chainsaws, gas, vehicle wear and tear...not counting the time it takes to get it..
some people heat with fuel oil....about $500/mo during the winter months, if you don't supplement with wood (most people do, if they have oil heat)...Of course a majority of these people also get energy assistance from the gov't - up to $3000 per yr...
