It's that time of the week again: Deal Diva Fridays! LOL That's right, the time I drive many miles and walk hundred's of aisles, looking for the best deals to feed my hungry crew. We have a small budget and a huge hunger to deal with, every week! Every week people! Anyway, first stop is UGO (United Grocery Outlet). Let me just say this, on a budget? Find this store or a comparable one- now! Bought over half my groceries there this week, mostly meat and produce. They have a fresh butcher there and the meat is great.
Best deal: these multi-grain pita breads- $1.39 each. Yes they are day olds, but I am saving a $1.30 over the Wal-Mart price. Just use them fast or freeze them. I keep mine in the fridge crisper and no problems. These are great for packed lunches, lots of upcoming events when I won't be home for lunch.
Next stop was Kroger, the family friendly neighborhood one in the 'boro. Big deal today: This gallon jug of my favorite brand of almond milk. Same price as I pay for 1/2 gallon at Wal-Mart, which usually lasts me about one week or so. I don't believe it will go bad any time soon, but don't worry. When the children realize it is in the fridge, I will get many offers to drink it quick.
I only picked my top 3 favorite deals, and number three was also found at the Kroger; Southwestern salad kit for half price. Fridays are insane here between shopping, school work and bible study. This little beauty will make my hubby's day, er night I mean. He gets his lunch from work at 5 p.m. and will enjoy this quick and fresh salad with his lunch, er dinner - LOL
There were MANY other deals to be had out there this morning and I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't paid full price for meat in years, not sure what I would do if I had too . . . ? Just keep your eyes peeled and remember mornings are best.
