We were approaching a critical level of rice in my bucket, so off to Joe V’s I went today.
20 lb bag of rice – $6.58 or $.33/lb
3.16 lbs of bananas – $1.05
Milk – $2.78
Strawberries – $1.87
Fresh jalapeno peppers – $.13
Penne pasta – 2 2lb packages – $1.80 or $.45/lb
White Onion – $.29
Holmes Sausage – $2.97
Bulk Bolillos – $1 (actually I only had six but got charged for 8 – $.25 stupid tax for my inattention)
And a few other assorteds. I was really close to the budget I had set, which was only $20.
I was also scouting prices for coupons that are coming out soon, and for my mental price book.
We’re supposed to get a $.75/1 McCormick spice or herb coupon on Sunday, and these become an excellent buy. You can click to enlarge the picture, but ground cinnamon is in the first picture, parsley flakes in the second and paprika in the third.
