I got this Pinterest idea of doing a $45.00/week grocery budget for freezer meals that are easy to prep on the weekends. Usually on Sundays, I go through weekly ads and see if there are any good sale on the items that I need to buy on the shopping list. There were great deals at QFC and Fred Meyer this week that I think I should make room for a stockpile! QFC had their “Buy 10, Save $5” promotion, which made a lot of things under $1.00! I got everything on my list of groceries for my week of freezer meals AND a stockpile more for the upcoming weeks all for $40.81!

Transaction #1: QFC

  • Barilla Pasta (x5) = $0.69/ea *when you buy 10*
  • S&W Tomatoes (x5) = $0.69/ea *when you buy 10*
  • Angus Chuck Roast = $6.90 (on sale for $3.99/lb)

Total (before sale) = $28.26

Final price = $13.80

Savings of $14.46, about 51%!

Transaction #2: Fred Meyer

  • Juanitas Tortilla Chips = $2.39
  • Kraft Cheese
    • Sale price = $3.39
  • Petite Carrots = $1.49
