I scored 10 just ripe bananas yesterday(I ate one just before taking this picture) for .22 cents a pound, a record low price for bananas in my area. The grand total worked out to $1.12 or just over .11 cents per large banana. I had to mail a parcel so stopped in at the attached grocery store and saw that bananas were on for .44 cents a pound. I piled some into my basket then got to the produce markdown section and saw a bag full of these barely ripe bananas on half price! Even if we can't eat all of them I can freeze the rest as make banana muffins at least once every two weeks.
Just past the halfway mark in the month and 3/4 of the way through my grocery budget so the only way to stay on budget this month is to stay out of the grocery store. Since the fridge and freezer are packed full to bursting this should not be a problem.
