$5 or Less Pantry Challenge: October 8th, 2015

It's time for our $5 or Less Pantry Challenge!

What did you add to your pantry this week for $5 or Less?

Here's mine ...

... from Sam's Club, 3 boxes of Zesty Grill Wild Alaska Cod Portions.  We paid $.51/box ... they were on clearance!

The Bar S bologna was $.99/package at Food Lion and I had 2 coupons for $1 off of 3 which made each package $.66 each.

The total for all of this was $5.47 plus taxes.  I went over the $5 limit a little but that's okay.  I've been under plenty of other times in previous weeks!

This picture represents several meals!  Score!


You can also follow A Working Pantry on Pinterest and on Facebook


  1. 10 (5 lb) bags of Russet potatoes - 50 lbs total for $4.90 @ Fresh Thyme. Some of the Fresh Thyme stores have a limit of 4 bags, but this one is new and said "no limit"! I went back and bought another 50 lbs . I found plans for storage using plastic water barrels so I'm going to but 6 of the barrels tomorrow (15 gallon ones- they cost $2/ each) and then we'll build the frame they fit on that will be in my basement! At that point, I'll buy another 150 lbs!

    1. What a deal gardenpat! Sounds like you are going to be busy!

  2. Can you freeze bologna and it thaw nicely? ? I never thought of that before....

  3. Excellent buying Patsy! Especially the cod! My bargains were found just today. I got 2 x 800gm tins of tiny potatoes for my home 'Shop', as well as two packets of dehydrated peas, each of which has 15 serves. The potatoes were reduced to $1.20, and the peas to -43c. On the same markdown trolley, I also found three really lovely china-feel travel coffee cups. All black and white chevron design, for -83c each. These I've put aside to gift to teachers along with a Coffee Gift Card or Gourmet coffee beans. So closer to $7 for me too, but three gifts and umpteen servings of salad vegetables for large gatherings so I'm very happy. I love this little challenge. It really forces me to look for something significant to add to my pantry for as little as possible. Thankyou. Mimi xxx
