Some of my Fav. Finds
We have these often and recently found that I was paying WAY too much for grits. This 24 oz. container of grits sells at Maceys for $2.19. Walmart sells this exact one for around $1.60. Wow, I have been wasting my money.
I was recently introduced to V-fusion by some friends and immediately was hooked. One serving contains a serving of fruit and a serving of vegetables. My fav. is the Strawberry Banana. YUM. I was disappointed that Maceys and Smiths sold it for over $4.00. However, Walmart sells it for just under $3.00. It's worth the price for me since we don't always get those needed antioxidants.
Hormel natural Choice deli meats is the sandwich meats I buy. There are no NITRATES in them. Again, it is not a cheap choice. Smiths and Maceys sells them for well over $4.00. Once in a while Smiths will mark them down. However, I find them marked down to $2.50 and less at Walmart quite OFTEN. We get turkey or chicken. There aren't a lot of choices but still worth it to me; I just can't imagine feeding my kid all those nitrates. School lunches freak me out because of that........the poor kids consume so much processed meat. It's crazy.
This is my favorite brand bread from Maceys. They also have plain white, buttermilk, honey multi grain, and plain wheat. We stock up on the multi grain and the yummy white. They use to go for under $1.00 but not anymore. However, I bought several loaves for $1.25. And if you are interested in the ingredients there they are below. Click to enlarge. Stone Ground Whole Wheat is the first ingredient....not bad at all!
I paid $5.00 plus tax for the above beverages which includes the soy milk, 2 gallons of Organic milk, and the calcium fortified juice. The soy normally goes for $3-4, the organic normally is $5.99 and the juice over $2.00. I did have to buy 7 boxes of cereal from Albertsons to get the milk at 3 boxes for $5, still not a bad deal and we needed cereal anyways. The juice was on sale for $1.00 a half gallon at Smiths.
