43% savings

So, I didn’t save a ton of money tonight, but this can prove that with “strategic shopping”  it is still possible to save money.

Once again I bought lots of fresh produce.  We canned another 30 pints of homemade salsa 🙂

I think we started out with almost 5 gallons of tomatoes and then needed lots of  onion, peppers, cilantro, black beans, lime juice & corn.

It is hard to gauge what our savings is with homemade items.  The cheapest I have gotten salsa was around $1.25, and that required a sale & triple coupon sale.  I think we have maybe $.75 invested into each jar of salsa.  So not a huge savings, but it is delicious and I KNOW exactly what went into each jar!  My family can eat some salsa.  On a normal week we might eat 1 pint…and sometimes more depending on how often we eat Mexican!   Salsa is really healthy and I am content when my kids keep spooning in on.  Even my oldest who wouldn’t willing eat a tomato will eat salsa left & right!
