New Year = New Focus, right??!! 

Let’s all work together on the best way to stock up on the best deals….  I am a firm believer that you have to budget and plan, so my focus is going to be on using a little bit (maybe $10 or $20) extra each week to build an awesome stockpile.  Listed below are the deals I feel are worth additional investment…  You have to invest a little to start the stockpile, but once you build the stockpile you can meal plan and eat from it and use your weekly grocery budget to buy more of the awesome deals – cheaper and actually then reduce your grocery expense!

 This week there is a Ground Beef Meal Deal, a Soup Catalina to roll and a Gas Point Soup Deal plus lots of yogurt coupons and deals and some options to get super cheap Cheerios, Fiber One Bars, Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks and even Toaster Strudel –

 So – in addition to your regular grocery needs, these are the items I would use my money to stock up on!


Ground Beef Meal Deal – Buy 1 Big pack of Fresh Ground Beef (4-5 lb.), get 9 Items Free:

Bush’s Best Chili or Kidney Beans

Del Monte Canned Tomatoes

McCormick Chili Seasoning

Fresh Express Iceburg Garden Salad

Tops Soft Cookies

All Natural Steamables Vegetables

Campbell’s Gravy

Simply Mashed potatoes

Pepsi 1.5 Liter

 Is this a GOOD deal??  4 lbs of burger at $3.99/lb(??) = $16.00  BUT you get 9 FREE items, so: 

I give the FREEBIES a value of $8 (which is all I would ever pay for all of that) so deduct $8 from the $16 and you have $8.00 for 4 lbs of beef which is $2.00 per lb. – This is a good deal for burger AND you have the makings of two awesome meals (chili and meatloaf) and about 2 extra lbs. of burger for the freezer!! 

 I will most likely do this deal twice, once as part of my weekly grocery budget utilizing the two meals this week and once more just to add all of the items to my stockpile!!
