Judy isn't that a good deal at 50 cents a can! If we lived close I would share with you. I'm trying so hard to save money on groceries and it is getting harder every week.I buy cheap generic trash bags,those have gone up from$2.09 to $2.99,I know that fuel has gone up but do they have to raise prices that much? I don't know what the prices are like in different parts of the country but this is getting crazy around here.I think I'll start a forum on prices and see how they compare.

I cannot believe how much time has to be spent on shopping just to save some money. I am beginning to sound like my parents. I remember when they used to tell us about a 5cent loaf of bread. I remember the magazines at the check out be 35 cents.

I shop the mark downs in produce! I roast peppers and onions with a little olive oil and salt. When they cool I run them through the processor making a paste. Freeze in ice cube trays or small smidge size container. It’s a great way to get a lot of flavor in my dishes. I do the same with celery cooked in a small amount of chicken broth, onion can be added if you like. They keep nicely in freezer containers or freezer bags once they set up. This can be done with many kinds of vegetable or fruit.

Lorie, the produce section is one of the best to get bargains. I make a lot of soup and stew from the produce that I find.  I figure if it grows together it will probably go well in a soup together.  Never could do that with roasted peppers, I would eat them before I got them to the freezer. Love a salad with roasted peppers a bit of mozzarella and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
The bakery section always has mark downs as well. Great if you make your own breadcrumbs.  Bread pudding, French toast always taste good.
Meat counter also has mark downs if you time your visit right.  You just have to plan to cook or freeze when you get home.

Welcome to our "family" hope you will share more tips and lots of recipes.
