Even though I spent a lot of time playing in the dirt this week, I still managed to squeeze in a few quick shopping trips. My favorite “shopping” trip last week wasn’t really shopping at all. I mean really, what normal person would consider picking up “chicken scraps shopping? I think it would be more like scavenging wouldn’t you?
I still find the whole topic of food waste amazing, and in my next post I’ll show you what I was able to reclaim from the boxes and what I did with all of it.
But first, here’s what else made its way into our kitchen this week:
If you have not signed up for Vitacost yet you should. Not only do they have great prices on dry goods and specialty foods, but when you sign up Vitacost will email you a code for $10 off your first order. Pretty sweet if you ask me!
I need to figure out a way to stock up on flour and sugar before canning season begins. Once the zucchinis start rolling in I’ll probably go through at least a 25 pound bag of flour for zucchini bread alone.
Milk was $2.49 a gallon, and the English muffins and sack of bagels were both marked down to $1.25 each.
Whoop there it is!
Total Spent This Week $23.86
Total Spent This Year $454.96
Total Spent This Year on Garden Seeds/Supplies $383.40
How did you do this week? Buy anything good? Was there any scavenging going on in your neck of the woods?
