Find any good deals on food lately?

Grocery store or restaurants. Either one is fine.

Food is so expensive, I don't like spending the cash on it :( So sad!

We went to BK last night. Whoppers were 2 for 5.

  • Don't eat outside.... that's always going to save you money. But your meat in bulk, if you can. I buy chicken and ground beef at Sam's. When I get home I divide the ground beef into pound bags and freeze them. I separate the chicken into two breasts and freeze them too. Then I have convenient sizes for meals. I'm not really into shopping around for frozen meals. Those are not healthy for you. There is nothing easier than throwing chicken in the crock pot and having it ready in time for dinner IMO.

    If you do have to eat out, take water over soda.... that will save you a little money as well.

  • We don't eat out often so I have no idea on restaurants.
    My DH is a better cook, lol

    We do our main grocery shopping at WinCo and buy all of our meat at the meat market.

  • I made 3 meals out of that whopper. We go to a Chinese buffet every couple months but that's it for restaurants.

  • I just got 80/20 hamburger for $2 a pound. Where I am, that's a good price. Not great, but good

  • McNasty's is offering 2 fish sandwiches thru Lent for only $3.89- competing with Arby's 2 fish sandwiches for $4.00. Little Caesars has a Hot & Ready pepperoni pizza for $5.00. Taco Bell has the party box w/ 12 Tacos for $10.00. We don't eat out that much, but there are always options available should the need arise. :p

    At the grocery store, Meijer just ran a 10 for $10 mix & match deal w/ the 11th item free.
