I almost forgot, the manager came and showed me how to find all of the hidden deals and weekly deals so I can get all of my savings! I think I may go back next week and try to get an interview and do a write up on it. I always have trouble finding Food Lion blogs. I figured it was because they didn't really have any good deals. Boy was I wrong! Today was a great trip. I met a wonderful lady who shared with me her experience and also introduced me to the store manager. It goes to show that it isn't always great to shop in a bubble. Normally I go in with my head down and eyes on the goal. This time I went in relaxed and came out very happy!!
(2) Bread $1 each
(2) Hot Dogs $0.99 each
(2) Honey Ham Sandwich Meat $1.17 each
(1) Ground Turnkey Patties $1.95
3.3 Pounds of Ground Beef $5.19
Large Pork Chops $4.65
Whole Bird $4.82
4 piece Fried Chicken $4.62
2% Milk $1.99
(50) Yogurts less than $3
Total $34 It doesn't tell me all of my savings, but I definitely saved more than I spent!!
All of my meats were on mark down by 50% except for the hot dogs and fried chicken. Since we have been out of town and I didn't have meat thawed out, we had fried chicken for lunch. I paid less than $2 a pound for ground beef! I went ahead and divided everything up and put it into the freezer which is packed. Tomorrow I will go ahead and cook the chicken and use it in casseroles.
**Don't have time to proof-read yet. Wanted to get this out so everyone could see the deals. Now I'm going to finish unpacking and cleaning**
