Not much on Flashfood this week but we did resupply our apples $5.00 for a box, Meijer Peanut butter 40 oz for $1.94 each, and 3 different kinds of Sargento cheese for $1.59 a bag. I even bought 2 rosemary plants from them for $1.64. I'll replant these outside when it gets warmer. In the meantime I think they need a trim.
I also told my daughter to get me the .99 peanut butter from Kroger (I got 5). I really didn't want anything else from there so I just gave her a five (no tax on food in MI) and got it the next time I was over at her house.
With the peanut butter from Kroger and Flashfood I'm stocked up for the year unless someone goes peanut butter crazy.
I started a long time ago using meal worms to get my chickens back in the coop. They will walk right in and I don't have to look like a crazy woman chasing them around the yard. Man, a bag of mealworms are expensive though so I'm not being as generous as I used to be. I was all out this past week and they didn't seem to like my alternative treat. I could see a revolt was about to happen any time so I went to the Farm and Home store while on a errand run.
As I walked in the store was a basket (buggy or cart) right in the entrance that said everything in it was a dollar. Right there in front was the bag of the mealworms that I needed! It was a busted bag but mostly full. Such a great deal, they are usually over $20.00. I also found a box of lightbulbs in the same basket that had lost one bulb out of four, for $1.00. Better than the dollar store!
Talking to another chicken keeper he found out that if you use your phone for hawk sounds they will run into your coop. Good to know.
So much for shopping.
The strawberries came in handy when the grandchildren were here last night. They were still perfect and I have a half a quart left. I had dreams of having strawberry oatmeal but I woke up late and had to run so maybe tomorrow if there are any left.
So much grief on the news, my heart aches. Prayers for Ukraine!
What are the ways you saved this past week?
