I went to several stores this week. This isn't the way I normally shop but since I'm rebuilding the stockpile I'm taking advantage of more of the deals out there. It really didn't take that much time. On Monday, I went to the bakery thrift store, Walgreens, CVS and Winn-Dixie. The whole trip took about an hour. Then on Wednesday I went to Walmart to pick up some things and used my gift card. I decided to try the bakery thrift store this week and was so happy I did. They carry Nature's Own bread which is one of the brands I like to buy. And while their everyday price of $1.49 is about $1 cheaper than it is in most stores around here, they have a Manager's Special table and I was able to get it for even less. Happy dance! Here's a breakdown of my deals.

Okay, I know I said in my weekly menu planning post that I'm going to try to do more cooking from scratch but my husband saw the Tombstone make a meal deal at Winn Dixie and declared we had to have it. The breadsticks and mozzerella sticks that were part of the deal were sold out so I got a rain check for them.

No picture for Walmart. I bought basic things like milk, flour, dry beans, peas, yogurt, etc.
