November Food Budget....Spending Update for This Week

I went into this week with $56.12 left in my $300 November Food Budget.

On Monday I hit Maine Source for onions, rutabaga, sweet potatoes, Yukon gold potatoes, mushrooms, butternut squash, a gallon of apple cider and 2lbs of mozzarella cheese for $29.68 OOP, a savings rate of 41.23% over reg. retail.

I then hit the local Shursave market for celery, 1 gal. of milk and 5 bags of assorted Hanover frozen veggies(.99¢ a bag!).  This all cost me $10.23 OOP, a savings rate of 44.50% over reg. retail.

And on Saturday I went back to Shursave to get more frozen veggies, ginger ale, ice cream, a can of "glop" and canned yams and spend another $12.12 OOP, a savings rate of 55.42% over reg. retail.

Total spending this week was $52.03 on $96.12 worth of reg. retail groceries and a savings rate of 45.87%.
And I have $4.09 left in my November budget, even with the $28.42 I spent on food bank donations I stayed under target.
Yay me! 8-)

I am done grocery shopping for this month.  Tuesday we start December(geez, already?!?)and I'll be back then with my November Food Spending Totals.

Black Friday Time Again

Just had to reshare this again this year.
It's one of my favs.....

The only shopping I'm doing is Rite-Aid(of course)and Hubs went to Office Max this afternoon to pick up a couple computer mice.
We also went to Weis(PMITA)Markets for a few things and just got back.

Other than that I won't be going anywhere until Monday morning.

My shopping has been done for weeks now.
I just need 1 thing for Hubs to pick up(no hurry/no sale)and then write a couple of checks.

I wish you luck if you went/have to go out into that shopping madness fray.
Stay safe!

I'll be back later this weekend with a new Giveaway instead of posting it today like I had planned.
Contrary to popular believe I DO have a life outside of the computer. lolz

Happy Thanksgiving & Stretchy Pants Day!

Wishes for the kind of Thanksgiving Day you enjoy for you and yours today.

The stuffing is warming already here......

The pies were done yesterday and the roll dough will be cut into rolls to rise very soon.

And after a quick Rite-Aid run(like you really thought I wouldn't go today?!! lolz), the deboned turkey breast will be stuffed and rolled.

No snow like last year on Turkey Day and that's fine by me!
