Food Lion 5-25-11 & Flowers Bread Store May 25, 2011

Filed under: Food Lion — queen620 @ 5:23 am


Only bought fresh produce & eggs…

Spent:  $21.36

Saved:  $1.54!

Bought 3lbs Zucchini,

bunch broccoli

3lbs bananas

sliced mushrooms

4 roma tomatoes

green bell pepper

green leaf lettuce

3doz eggs @ $5.

It is easy to save money on packaged items, but it is difficult to have well rounded & balanced meals from all the pre-packaged stuff.  So in my mind I “spend” my coupon savings to be able to afford fresh produce, milk & meat.



Saved easily $10…I bought

2 packs sub rolls

1- 12 pack hamburger buns with seasame seeds

*Hotdog buns


A little of Everything for our vacation!

5-18-11 Sam’s $38…

3 large packs of deli meat – Ham, Turkey & Roast Beef 22oz each

1 large pack Provolone Cheese

Sounds expensive, but buying lunch meat meant we could easily pack picnic lunches while on vacation.  Sure we could have eaten Peanut Butter & Jelly for our picnics, but Brad isn’t so fond of PB& J and it was a real nice change in routine!
