Days 9 and 10

Day 9- no spending! Yippee! We were the recipients of this lovely fruit from our neighbors, which was quite a bit bigger before I go the picture. There used to be about 6 plums and 3 or 4 peaches too. Day 10- A trip to Target .47!!!!!!!!!!!!! For everything!!!
Then on to the "meat" store as we call it. It sells local meat and dairy products. I usually go once a month after I write out the monthly menu.
Well they had a special that for every $10 you spend you get 2 yogurts for .01 each. So 16 yogurts later we're .16 poorer, not to bad.

Here is our meat stash. My originally purchase was 60.06, which is all I'm counting:-). When I got to the check out she told me the ground beef was on sale for $2.97 a pound. This is 25% off, you have to buy 10 pounds to get the discount so $29.70 later was have lots of beef. We only eat beef 2 maybe 3 times month so this will last a while probably to December, especially because I have some in the freezer still.
So sadly only $58.74 left

Going to make it to the end of the month? :) At least you have a lot of stuff stockpiled what with the cereal and meat and such.

I think it could be kind of close if I don't count pears and tomatoes that I want to can. I think a winter month would be a better month to try this little experiment.

I never thought I'd appreciate the gift of food as much as I do this month! My mother-in-law gave us some ground turkey and fish fillets she didn't have room for in her freezer. Free food is great! Good luck with the rest of the month!

You got some phenomenal deals! I just wonder how much the Lord steps in and covers the gaps in these surprise bargains we find, which provides what we need and stretches our budgets!
