Last Thursday I was in the grocery store stocking up when I came across some awesome deals.
In the produce section we have fresh veggie kits, everything to make a wonderful, savory side dish at home. These tend to be pricey, but when you find these on clearance they are an excellent deal.
I found Roasted Butternut Squash and Broccoli Medley in Lemon Dill Sauce. Regularly these would be $3.99 each, but they were marked down to $1.99 each. After I picked these up, I headed to the clearance bread rack where I grabbed a loaf of cheese bread for $1.69. This is regularly around $4.99. Next I chose a fresh roasted chicken from the deli. I paid retail price of $5.99 for that.
Dinner was ready in less than and hour and fed my husband and I for a couple of meals. The kids ate some chicken. Prince Charming opted out of the veggies because he ate too late and they were already cold. If he had been there when they were hot, he would have cleaned them out. Buttercup, doesn’t really eat much of anything.
So, for about $12.75, I fed my family a healthy and delicious meal. If I had paid retail the price would have been right around $20. That’s more than a 35% savings.
Next time you’re in the grocery store late in the afternoon, tired and just ready to go home, but dinner still haunts you, use my discount dinner trick. It’s quick, easy, satisfy the masses, and I had 2 pans to wash.
