Some Great Buys This Week

I can't ignore the sales this week! They're actually pretty good! I'm really trying to be more and more frugal. Here's what I'm buying today that really will save me money:

1 lb butter $1.88 (usually around $2.12-$2.23)

1 gallon whole milk $2.99 (usually close to $4.00)

1/2 lb roast beef lunchmeat $1.99 (usually around $5.00 and I don't buy it, but hubby needs lunchmeat for his work lunches and he loves roast beef. To save money, he only gets lunchmeat sandwiches every other week. On the non-lunchmeat weeks, he gets salad sandwiches (tuna, egg, etc) or peanutbutter)

1 lb American Cheese $3.99 (usually $4.99, but not the best deal. A couple weeks ago, it was $2.99. Still, we could use the cheese. If money is tighter than expected, I'll only get 1/2 a lb.)

Golden Grahams Cereal $1.66 a box (usually hovering around $3.50-$4.00 and I don't buy it unless on sale, or I get the generic version. I get it for hubby. I don't eat boxed cereals anymore, except for the occassional treat.)

Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast $1.69 lb (usually $2-something a pound, but I only ever buy it if it's on sale. This is the cheapest I've seen it in a long time. I'm going to stock up!)

Liverwurst $2.99 lb (usually around $3.99 a lb, but I might not buy it. During Bubby's pregnancy, my doctor recommended I eat liverwurst for increased iron since I nearly always run slightly anemic. I like it anyway, but I might not bother since I'm cutting carbs and not eating very much bread. Making a sandwich out of it is something I probably won't do then. Besides, I'm buying calf liver for dinner later anyway.)

Yep, good buys!

Doesn't your husband deserve cold cuts every week if he wants them? Too much deprivation will drive a man away.

I don't think that Ladyscott is depriving her husband. If you have read this blog for any length of time, you would know that Ladyscott honors her husband with everything that she does. My guess is that her husband was part of this decision to enjoy lunchmeat every other week. It is an expensive treat in our home every other week, too!

Boneless skinless around here havne't been that cheap for a very very long time. So making your hubby do without lunch meat is deprivation?? I applaud your frugality! Egg & tuna salad sandwiches sound delicious, and pb&j sandwiches are loaded with fiber. Sounds to me like you'r taking good care of him. :-)
