So, I ventured out to Safeway, today, with Luke and Anna, after Ava got on the bus for school and SCORED big time!!

I won’t go into all the details about prices, etc, but I wanted to post this to show that YOU TOO can SCORE BIG TIME!!

Here’s what I got for:  $13.45

PLUS, I got THREE catalinas for 3 FREE 10-pack boxes of Capri Suns!

P1010269

6 boxes of Cheerios

2 boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch

4 bags of Nature Valley Nut Clusters

3 boxes of Ritz Crackerful Crackers

8 cans of Tomato Soup

4 Cans of Safeway Tomato Paste

2 Bottles of V8 V-Fusion Juice

1 package of Chips Ahoy Cookies

1 box of Ritz Crackers

31 items for $13.45!!  (Which, if you broke it down, is only 43 cents per item!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WOOHOO!!!

And, just for fun, I thought you might like to see some of my stockpile of cereal, snacks, juice, etc.  (From what I could count, there are AT LEAST 50 boxes of cereal up there!!)  And, this is only ONE of the many cupboards full!!!!

    How are you going to use all that food up before their expiration dates? That’s one problem I’ve found with buying in large quantities or in bulk (like Costco).

    Hi Sarah! It cracks me up how we have almost identical “stuff” in the pantry. To Amy’s comment, I personally do not have much go bad (it happens, but not too often). I sort by expiration date and put the soonest dates in front. I’m fixing to use a LOT of crackers in the next couple months, though, hahaha! Honestly, I”m sure much of it is still edible for months after the expiration, even if the taste quality drops a little. Take care!

      I do the same thing! I organize by expiration date! And, yes, you’re right…..I read awhile ago that most boxed food, ie: crackers, cereal, cookies, etc. (and probably many other foods!) can be good up to a year or more after their expiration dates!!! So, that is something I don’t usually worry about. Plus, every month I always usually take an “inventory” of what I have and if something really will be going bad, I’ll find a recipe for it, or find something useful to do with it!!! 🙂
