Shopping right now isn’t the right choice for every family with but 6 of us home all day- my stockpile has taken a big hit and I really wanted fresh fruit for my kids to eat and we had one orange left. Since I was going for the fresh fruit and meat- I went ahead and grabbed some coupon deals on things we would be eating anyway.
I took every precaution I could while out. I used sanitizing wipes on every surface I touched…I sanitized my hands after I put the cart back and before I entered my car. I took steps to be sure I was several feet away from anyone else..even if that meant waiting for people to pass.
I went to Harris Teeter & Food Lion today. There was fruit and veggies at both stores but the meat selection was very slim (I was really wanting to get the $1.79/lb chicken at Harris Teeter) There was no paper products at either store but the shelf stable and dairy products were fully stocked- so that is what I grabbed.
*disclosure>…I should have only bought 3 boxes of cookies. In my mind the $0.75/1 coupon was $0.75/2 so I paid a lot extra for the cookies…#lessonlearned
We’ll be smoking the Boston Butt this week for a dinner (plus freezing extras to do a drop off of frozen dinners for my sister who is expecting a baby…I mean a literal drop off where I run a cooler to her porch and dash off! ). And we’re making an extra tray of lasagna to drop off for her too.
Would you believe an entire bag of grapes is gone already?? #BigFamilyProblems
Here is my haul from today….a lot of snack foods but some basics to keep the bellies full!
