******** reference to an older blog post "the bottom line ********** HERE
I am going to try to post some "creative cooking" with some of the things I bought today
I headed out there to see what goodies I could find because you know it is a kin to a "treasure hunt" or a "trip to the thrift store" .... going to Fresh to Frozen.....
I like making my "meals around the deals" or "creative cooking" being AFFRUGAL is something I am proud of when teaming up my shopping skills with my cooking skills I come out WAY ahead of the game ....most of the time.
With all of the kids gone and grown , I tend to not cook as much as I once did....and don't watch to make sure I am getting all of my vitamins as much as I looked out for that with my kids.
|8 boxes / packs = 1 flat = $1.00 TOTAL for 8 ....|
TODAY I had fun with some FREE THERAPY.... my GF, SUSAN came over and we caught up a bit, she helped me get in a heavy case of waters....and we talked about all of the deals so much that she left my house and went to cash in on a few of them herself. WELL...... she went later in the day and most of the deals I got in were gone but she still left with 3 bags of stuff, (I had about 10) which was worth the drive ... every time I go it is worth it..... .
The highest things that I paid for
Some ICY HOT THERAPY PADS...... $2.99
Coconut Shrimp (have been wanting badly) $6.08 a box x2
hugs "party size" artichoke / spinach dip / restaurant size $5
