I've been meaning to do this for awhile but keep forgetting. So today's the day! A couple of suggestions were made by fellow readers/bloggers related to my food purchasing habits and I never let you know that I have put your suggestions into practice!!
First of all a reader, Joann, suggested I buy "fresh" jalapenos instead of canned or bottled. That was a great idea - fresh ones are much cheaper and a package lasts much longer then a bottle. My daughter and I both like our food HOT!! so add jalapenos to so many things - like last week we made spaghetti sauce and added in three fresh chopped jalapenos. (Two would have been plenty!!) I ended up putting in more tomato sauce to tone it down a little.
The other suggestion I have put into practice is buying some of our produce at Giant Tiger. This suggestion was made by fellow blogger Sam @ It's Me, Sam. You were right - they have great deals on quite a variety of produce. As I have a Giant Tiger and a No Frills store both within a 5 minute walk from my house it's been a snap to include a couple of trips into Giant Tiger each week. We go through avocados PDQ!!
So many thanks Joann and Sam!! I love practical suggestions that I can easily put into effect and that save me $$$!!
Now...how can I save money on gas.....??
