My Shopping Trip: Ingles from last week!
I am way behind in getting my shopping trips posted up from last week...they take a little while to break down for you so we will start with a simple one!
All I bought was chicken legs...16 packs to be exact! Of course they just can't put the sale price on the receipt, they show the regular price and then a minus $ amount for the sale! Maybe it's not so simple :)
Each pack contained 5 legs...enough for dinner for the 3 of us plus 1 leftover for lunch the next day (for my husband to take to work)!
I used $1 Tyson coupons on each pack!
Total Before Sales & Coupons: $42.62 Total After Sales & Coupons (including tax): $6.05
Yes...I just paid $6.05 for 16 packs of chicken...unreal! This is the best deal I have gotten on any type of meat...ever!
Plans for a gazillion chicken legs...Boil, Bake, Fry. Chicken Salad, Soups, casseroles, pot pies, etc. My favorite chicken leg is fried (when soaked in buttermilk...the way granny use to do it!) add a little tarragon into the dry flour mix and it's heaven!
This chicken will make approximately 16 meals or more and will last us for at least 3 months or more (because we don't like to eat chicken everyday). I have frozen chicken for up to 6 months and never had a problem with freezer burn. I wrap all of my meats in butcher's paper then foil and place them in ziploc bags (enough meat for whatever meal I plan to cook with it). I also label what meal it will be for with a permanent marker on the outside of the ziploc bag!
16 meals for of meat for $6.05 is a pretty darn good deal to me! This price makes it $.09 per serving assuming that I will make 4 servings with each pack! Throw in some free rice and free veggies from prior trips and you can't beat it with a stick! How about feeding your family of 4 for $.36???
Did I mention that I LOVE COUPONS?
