I keep hoping to find good sales so we can more easily be eating healthy gluten free dairy free food on a budget, but I’m not finding much. Around the big holidays, I find most of the dirt cheap food is NOT gluten free or dairy free. Still, I found some good deals, and thankfully this week I was under budget.
Here’s what I bought this week:
Fry’s – $8.94
I was so glad to find this ground turkey on clearance. On WW (Weight Watchers), extra lean ground turkey is 0 points, so I immediately cooked up 2 packages and made 5 Ingredient Chili (from My FreezEasy), and the whole meal was 0 points. Yes! The rest of the turkey is in the freezer for later.
Natural Grocer’s -$7.96
Natural Grocer’s has the best price for the kind of eggs we buy–$1.99 for a dozen, so I bought 4 cartons there. (No picture)
Fry’s & Sprout’s – $18.95
Just basics here–breakfast sausage and bread. $11.97 for weekly groceries; $6.98 for stock up groceries (we’ll use two of those packages of sausage next week).
Azure Standard – $16.85
Azure Standard has the cheapest price I’ve found for many of my seasonings and vanilla, so I bought those. I also bought a 5 lb. package of green split peas. $16.98 on stock up groceries.
Fry’s, Trader Joe’s, Natural Grocer’s, & Sprout’s – $78.84
This was our large trip for the week. I’ll admit, it’s really taking me a while to get used to using dried beans; I miss the convenience of canned beans! I also stocked up on Sprout’s frozen peas and carrots. I can’t eat corn, so I can’t easily find frozen bags of mixed veggies; this is the closest I can find. Grass fed ground beef was $3.99 a pound, so I bought two packages and put some in the freezer for later.
Fry’s – $9.98 stock up; $11.53 weekly; Trader Joe’s $9.96 weekly; Natural Grocers – $7.71 weekly; Sprout’s – $8.00 stock up; 31.66 weekly
