We are going to be eating a whole lot of TOMATOES for the next while, because I made out like a bandit at Publix Italian Days this week. I may need to make a quick trip back to the store because I was shopping with two kids and it’s nearly impossible to juggle coupons, an infant in a front carrier, and a “car cart” with a toddler in it while trying to keep one’s mind focused on shopping!
We were also planning on eating leftovers on Saturday night and discovered that we really didn’t have any. That’s a good thing, because it means they were being eaten for lunch! But I had to swap out one of the meals I had planned for this week.
Anyway, here’s my plan for this week (tentatively):
Sunday: Pancakes, Bacon, Eggs
Monday: Chicken Fried Rice
Tuesday: Chicken Enchilada Soup (making my own cream of chicken soup)
Wednesday: Mini Meatloaves (based on this recipe, except I have to make mine without cheese), orange slices, fried potato slices
Thursday: Tomato Soup, grilled cheese (for Mr. V and Libbie)
Friday: probably eating out, my grandparents are going to be here
If you’re interested, here are the steals I got at Publix this week!
$5 off 20 General Mills Deal
2 Green Giant frozen boxed vegetables / 2 @ $1.00 each
–used 2 .50/1 q’s that doubled = .00
6 cans Progresso beans / $4.00
–used $1/4 store q from Italian Days ad = $3.00
4 cans Progresso soup / $4.58
–used $1/4 store q from Italian Days ad and $1/4 q from CouponNetwork = $2.58
2 cans Green Giant veggies = $1.29
1 large can Hunt’s crushed tomatoes = .95
1 small can Hunt’s tomato sauce = .34
GRAND TOTAL $3.50
- And I actually would have saved more if I had bought four cans of veggies and four cans of beans, but I am more likely to use the beans. But if you do that you can use the $1/4 store q in the Italian Days ad for canned veggies.
Not too shabby! With my other groceries, I spent $60.10 and saved $45.65.
