If you were going to spend $100 on groceries what would you buy?

I have a coupon save $10 on $100 grocery order that has to be used before the end of the year, and you get a cheaper turkey during the holidays if you spend$75 so I was getting a turkey for sure what else does a pantry need?

  • Pastas, rices, soups, beans. Things that will last and go a long ways if you do not need to use it right away. You could always buy some meat and freeze it as well.

  • the holidays everything goes on sale so stock up on canned goods, soups, and even boxed food like scalloped potatoes

  • If I was thinking about the turkey I would get boxed stuffing, rice in the bag, canned veggies (corn, green beans, carrots, a mix...) and cranberry sauce, cooking soups (cream of...) then I would think about what else would last. Between the boxed and canned pantry items they should be no more than $20 if none are on sale... I would buy frozen chicken (most likely boneless, skinless) and frozen juice mixs. Than some basic needs like eggs, milk, butter, sour cream, cheese, bread. Any money left over I would get dessert makings for holiday food, not just ice cream sundaes or something like that.

  • only $100. That's not even enough for a week here.
    I'd by milk, cheese, veggies, fruits, meat. That's about all I could get with $100.

  • I would buy staples like flour, sugar, coffee-if you don't have those. Also pasta, rice, beans, pancake mix, cake mix. All those can be stored for when you need them.
