Went over budget this week (I get the whole month's budget at once), but bought a gal. of white vinegar for $ 2.35 (I buy the white & cider by the gal.), 5 Hunt's ketchup for $ .99 each, 2 clumps of great looking broccoli at $ 1.00 each (already made broccoli salad for Sun. etc.) dark rye sandwich buns 8 for $ 1.50 (new item in the store) & I bought about 16# of gr. chuck on sale for $ 2.79# (I put 36 burger patties in the freezer Sat. & have about 7# left for ???).
 The best deal was matching an ad for the Perfect Meatloaf Pan Set that was BYG1F   (would have been 2 for $ 14.99 or $ 7.50 each), the store had 1 so I asked if I could get it for 1/2 (would have been $ 7.50), the clerk paged the manager & she came over, said "sure no problem, sorry we just had the one" & rang it up, when I got home & was putting the items away (I always check them off on the receipt to make sure I was not overcharged) I found that the manager rang it up at $ 3.25.  I decided to call the store because I shop there often & most workers know me by sight. The manager said she did not make a mistake, said I was a good customer & never got upset when I had to get a rain check when they were out of items & that some lady was in earlier to match the same ad & was offered the 1 for 1/2 off. but she stormed out saying she would shop elsewhere so she decided to give me the pan for 1/2 of the ad.
 I am glad I called, I wil not have to wonder if she made a mistake & it is nice to know that some people remember the nice customers ( I see no reason to get upset, the clerks do not do the ordering) along with the crabby ones.  I was going to give 1 pan as a gift to each kid, but now maybe I should keep the 1 in case the lady asks me if I like it.

There are still some bargins out there you just have to sit down and check out the store flyers and on line to see where the best prices are.In one respect I'm lucky to be living in the city the stores are all near by.Just by doing this and using coupons you can really bring the cost down.I usually cut the cost down by 50%.At least we are still eating good but I can't bank the amount saved.

I was at Sam's Club yesterday and they had some stew beef, cubed, marked down.  It was less expensive than ground beef so I bought a package.  Made BBQ beef that night with 1 pound of it then ground the other 2 pounds for burgers later.
I pressure cooked the beef cubes then added a BBQ sauce and pressure cooked it a bit longer until it could be shredded easily.  That 1 pound made enough for 4 sandwiches. Tender and tasty.

There are no bargains at our big chain store.They used to mark things down and that doesn't happen anymore.I think they order less inventory and run out instead of marking down.They used to have a cart up front with discontinued items Once they marked air freshener down to $1-09 and I had coupons for .50 and they doubled them and I ended up paying .09 cents for each I only shop there for sale items and double coupon items that I use.

Going shopping Fri. & so far I have no coupons to use (my list is made out for the sale items). Two stores did not put out their ads this week (asked the postal carrier & was told they did not get them) so I read the ads on line. This makes it hard for the people not on line to make a list. Guess the stores do not care about anything but making money. 
Next week should have Memorial Day specials, hope they are good.

Went to 4 stores (all less than 2 miles from home) & got some good deals even though I did not have any coupons ( Frown ). Got  a little over 3# Angus gr. chuck, 40 oz of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 3 packs of kielbasa, a  very large seededwatermelon, 24 eggs, gal. of milk, gal. of ice cream (real ice cream for milkshakes for hubby), angel food cake( too hot to bake), 24 cans of Pepsi, 5# salsa, 2# sour cream, 10# potatoes, large head of cabbage, 8count seeded burger buns, loaf of flax bread, 100 sq. ft of foil, 6 Progresso soup (exp. date 2014), 2 red & 4 green bell peppers, 1# roasted almonds($3.99) & 24 sheets of parchment paper (fits the lg. pan for $2.00) for a grand total of $71.79. The kielbasa =6 dinners for hubby (& 3 for me), chicken will be 2 meals each with planned overs, gr. chuck =not sure what to do with it, (hubby wants burgers at least once), might make a mini batch of stuffed pepper casserole(the meat was on sale $ 1.87# limit 3 packs so I could not pass up the savings). I will make potato salad, small batches of cole slaw as needed, & he can have milkshakes ( I "might" make myself a small float). Will thaw some of the strawberries I froze to put on the angel food cake & he can have ice cream or whipped cream, or cool whip (I do keep some in the freezer ), his choice (I also have some pound cake in the freezer for him). It is going to be too hot to cook (high 80's & low 90's). As far as I know it will be just the 2 of us for the holiday, & we both will probably be outside working on the garden etc. When hubby wants planned overs for 1 of his dinners, I plan on having a "fried" egg on flax toast with Miracle Whip Wink.
