Of course they do! First, Walmart announced the demise of ad matching/price matching. I have until September 11, to shop using price matching. Second, another store that keeps a freezer on the floor with mark-down meats no longer has the freezer. Now, a consultant recommended getting rid of it. They did. Also, the cooler with marked down dairy is gone too. Third? Well, I don't know what it is yet.
Tuesday, I did a good stock up shopping trip using price-matching, coupons, and shrewd sniffing out of bargains. More celery, grape tomatoes are ready to dehydrate. Other things on sale elsewhere that I got at Walmart: two Miracle Whip on sale and with a coupon; 4 24-packs of Coke products for $9.99; Delicious apples at $0.98/lb; Vidalia onions $0.78/lb.; 2 quarts strawberries $1.29/ qt.; Dasani $3.98. The Cokes and water will last me until 2018, maybe longer.
Exbf and I ate lunch at Dairy Queen, $3 each with coupon. Lunch would have been better if I could have had a Coke instead of Pepsi. For dinner we had boneless, skinless chicken breast with carrots and potatoes in the crockpot. He was moaning over the carrots. We drank water because I did not make tea.
I served him mushy peas and he is not a fan. I had put them in s mall bowl to put on his plate. Since he asked me to take them away, I was glad I did not put them on the plate. He says mushy peas are nothing like our peas as far as taste. Yes, they are the same genus and species, but I suppose the spices are different. At any rate, Dominique will get the rest.
Four carrot ends are in water in the window to provide green tops for us to eat later in a salad or soup. to eat. He sat and chopped the bits up that I cut off each end of the carrots. Dominique will not peck off a carrot, but if I chop the ends, she gobbles them right down. I have a spoiled chicken. She needs competition for food, then she would fight for a carrot.
Now, I am waiting for the third blow to my grocery shopping!
Are any of your favorite ways to spend less on groceries disappearing?
