|Freighter spotted on September Ferry Ride from Victoria to Port Angeles|
Today was 10% off Tuesday at Safeway where if you spend a minimum $35 on the first Tuesday of the month you get 10% off your total bill (or 10x the airmiles but I always take money off over airmiles). They had a sale on skinless boneless chicken breast for $2.99 a pound so I bought 8kg (17.6 lbs) and got an additional .30 cents off per pound for a total of $2.69 per pound final price.
That is the lowest I can buy chicken breast, even bone in around here and we use a lot of it as are trying to eat heart-healthy. I only have a small apartment-sized freezer plus the freezer that is attached to the fridge. They are both 100% full now as I had to completely empty them to rearrange all the food inside to get it to fit. It seems I have been stocking up on frozen meat of late and it feels great knowing that all of it was on sale. I even found some things in there I didn't know we had like shrimp which I thought we were out of.
My Stepdaughter and Stepson are flying out for a few days this weekend (ages 16 and 18) so we will be eating down some of the groceries in the house with large family meals due to their hollow legs at this age.
Today our big treat is BBQ ribs that I bought on sale last month for $5 a rack, fully prepared as they just need to be reheated on the BBQ for some charcoal taste. We will have that along with leftover rice from last nights dinner and a quick salad. I think dinner will be ready in 10 minutes tonight - don't you just love when you don't have to spend tons of time in the kitchen?
Now every cent I save by shopping wisely like on 10% Tuesday I mentally equate to something cool to do like enjoying a glass of wine on our upcoming holiday to Portugal or pancakes in Amsterdam. Cheers!
