On Monday after school/work I ran to Walmart for some items. There were several things, like eggs, that I looked at, priced at $2.79, and then left on the shelf because the price was much higher than I have been paying at other stores. I'll just wait until I am somewhere else that has them cheaper.
For those of you that are still having to pay high prices for eggs, I found the following chart from Ordinary Vegan that you may appreciate.
One of the reasons I went to town was to get carrots from Aldi. They had carrots on sale this week priced at two pounds for 59¢ each, so I stocked up and bought ten bags.
After we came home Monday, I heated up two of the Salmon Patty plates I made up on Sunday. It gave me a good feeling to know that we ate food here that did not cost me any additional money.
Dinner on Tuesday was Cheese Enchiladas, which is one of my daughter's favorite things to order whenever we eat Mexican food. These were super cheap to make too.
My friend gave some string cheese (free) she wasn't using, so I decided to take some corn tortillas (60¢) and wrap them up, cover them in enchilada sauce ($1.18), and made cheese enchiladas.
I made twenty of them in all and they cost under $2.00 for the whole batch. Even if you had to pay regular price for the string cheese, this would be an affordable dinner.
On Wednesday I went to Fresh and Low and I'm glad I did. They had the reduced rack of produce out.
I was able to get one bag of cucumbers, one bag of colored peppers with an avocado inside, and one bag with two pints of blueberries in it! All of these were $1.00 each, which was such a great deal.
I also picked up sour cream ($1.29), bread ($1.00), 3 baking potatoes ($2.02 or 67¢ each), 2 bottles of Italian dressing on mark down (99¢ each), pepperoni ($2.50), mozzarella cheese ($7.76), and eggs ($1.59 each). I'm glad I did not buy the eggs at Walmart for $2.79 on Monday.
These things that I do to save money are not magical or even new for that matter, but they save me money when I do them consistently.
