It was a nice day last Monday (before the snow/severe cold) and we decided to go for a drive. I suggested we go to the Amish and Mennonite stores and enjoy ourselves before the virtual learning for the grandkids began last week.
You know, we just like to go when we can. Going on car rides get us out of the house and keep us from going stir crazy. I suggested going there because I thought they wouldn't have anything in stock. You see, the last time we went they were low on stock and the deals were far and few between. So, I knew on the way back that it would give us something to talk about. Well, boy was I wrong! Maybe Monday morning is the time to shop..
So, just so you know the budget is blown but in the end we decided if we see it at a good price we should buy it now. This is a different world now, isn't it?
Here are some examples of the good deals (none were out of date):
We bought Campbell's tomato soup for .59 a can
We found our Koegel's bologna! This is a hit or miss item.
He bought smoked Pork chops for $12.62 (8 good sized pork chops)
5 lb bag of grapefruit $4.99
5 lbs of natural Peanut butter for $5.99 (I've been looking for a deal on Natural Peanut butter)
1 package of Jimmy Dean sausage for $1.50
24 count of fruit snacks $1.99
There was more to a grand total of $129.36
Well, we had the money because we had saved the previous weeks so we are good in that respect.
