So this month I am doing a No Spend January/Eat from your Pantry. If you want the specifics on what that means, go here to my previous post. In essence, I am only spending $150 on groceries this month for my family of 7, when we normally would spend about $150.00 a week.
Before starting I did stock up on frozen veggies, milk, eggs and bread, which went into the freezer. I made one trip to the grocery store this past week and struck gold, while only spending $26.00.
One of our family's favorite fruits is strawberries. When I buy them, we can go through a pound or two at a sitting. I am pretty picky about price and will not spend more than $2.50 per pound. When I went to the commissary before starting this challenge, one pound of strawberries was $4.99. That's ridiculous to me!! I opted out on that purchase at the time. But when I ran to the store this week, they had two pound packages of strawberries for $1.99. YES!!!
This is cheaper than frozen berries right now. So I took advantage of the sale and stocked up. I bought 14 pounds of berries. I forgot to take a picture before we washed, ate, cut, froze and dipped strawberries in chocolate. They were YUMMY!
