For once, Leroy didn’t have a snarky anwesr, but gave good advice. The Midweek is a weekly free newspaper that comes by mail. All the major grocery stores have their weekly sales ads in it. We usually go through all the ads and make a list, then go shopping. Most of the stores also have discount or reward cards, sign up for them. Costco and Sam’s Club are great for non-perishables, bread, milk, paper products. If the bulk amounts will be too much for you, find some one to split it with you. Depending on where you live, check independent grocers for produce. When I was in Waimanalo, Shima’s Market usually had produce any where from 20 cents to a dollar less per pound than the big chains. In Waianae, I go to Tamura’s or The Waianae store for the same reason. Farmers Markets are great and most communities have them weekly. As far as stretching, make the most of your left overs. For example; We had a 12 pound spiral ham for Christmas. With the leftover meat, my mom made ham and bean soup, using the ham bone to flavor the stock. With more leftover meat, I made a ham, cheese, broccoli, and noodle casserole. Some of the meat was frozen and used later. My dad chopped some to add to his fried rice. I am really not sure how many different meals that one ham was a part of. We do the same thing with turkey. I have a large beef roast in the slow cooker right now. That will be dinner for tonight, and the rest of the meat will be shredded and frozen so I can use it in a casserole later, probably a Sheppard’s pie. The other thing I try to do, is if I make a large recipe, instead of eating it two nights in a row, I freeze the leftovers. I’d rather have it ready made at a later date when I am pressed for time, than eat the same thing in a row.
