GCC Shopping Round Up

This week I did a little stock up on some meat. When you buy the larger "family packs" the price per pound is so much cheaper. So when I get home I divide the pack in half, put it in the freezer, and then the next week I won't have to buy any meat. It jacks up my weekly spending a bit but in the long run it helps me stick to the budget. Right now I have a freezer with a whole chicken, (from two weeks ago when I bought a package of 2) a meals worth of thighs and breasts, and a giant meaty ham bone just waiting to be used when I need it. Here's what I got this week.

Win-comilk $2.36
3 cans spaghetti sauce $2.94
vanilla $1.08
apples $6.16
yogurt $1.98
strawberry jam $2.72
