March Grocery Shopping Part 2- Wegmans & Big Lots. March 19, 2015

Part 1 of the March grocery haul is here.

We have been to Wegmans a couple of times this month. Once on purpose and once to pick up eggs. Of course, we bought much more than eggs! This was a great example of why I try to limit my monthly trips to the grocery store. I will buy more than I plan 100% of the time. We are still under budget so I am okay with it. We also made a trip to Big Lots to pick up some totes for our basement organization project. I love checking out their grocery aisles while there. They always have at least a couple of great products at great prices. Gourmet condiments, organic snacks, gluten free goodies…. It is definitely always worth checking out if you are there.

On to the groceries~

Meat~

~ Chicken Thighs

~ Chicken Drumsticks

~  Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

~ Hamburger

* I used to only buy boneless skinless chicken breasts but have shifted away from using it exclusively since deciding to eat more organic meat years ago. Organic chicken thighs and drumsticks are really quite cheap and worth the extra dollar or two. Organic boneless skinless breast is about $5 more a pound and I just can’t afford that. So I buy the non organic and we eat less of it. Someday I hope to buy all organic meat, but this works for now.

Big Lots Goodies~

~Popcorn- Sweet & Spicy and Caramel and Cheddar. I would never have bought Caramel and Cheddar popcorn if I had not tried it from a place in Chicago. It is really good

I do not foresee any other major grocery trip this month. We will need milk, eggs and some bananas but that is about it. Do you have any “secret places” for great grocery deals?
