$5 or Less Pantry Stocking Challenge: 6/18/2018

In my last stocking up post I shared that I had $61.14 to carry over to this week, add this week's allotment of $5 to it and it gives me $66.14.

My husband found an outstanding deal on chicken (even though he's not a big fan of chicken) and stocked-up …


Each package had a $1.50 off coupon which made them less than a $1/package.  In fact, my husband paid $12 and some cents for all of this chicken … 21 packages!  I was so proud of him … he loves to hunt down a good bargain just as much as I do!   We're all set for chicken for awhile thanks to his keen and watchful deal finding eye!

The total in our stocking-up fund was $66.14, we spent $12 leaving us with $54.14 which we'll carry over to next week or until we find another good deal!

  1. Wow! That is great! I love it when deals like that just happen.

    We ended up going out for some grocery deals on Friday. Wise Buys grocery outlet had cases of 48 bags of whole grain baked cheese puffs that we love for $5. Thomas’s English muffins in packs of 9 for $1. huge bottles of BBQ sauce were 1.99, 12 packs of chocolate milk in aseptic cartons were 1.99, etc. And our downfall is they have Entemann’s baked goods for $1.25 and we always end up with something yummy. Then another store had a sale starting at noon on Friday and we got shredded cheese buy one get two which was 3/3.98, baby back ribs for $2.48 a pound, pita bread for .79 a pack, ice cream 3 for $4, cones were .28 a pack with coupons, Manwich sauce was .78, Pringles chips ,48, BBQ sauce was .98, bacon was 1.98, and everything else I am forgetting. They have these noon on Friday sales about once a month and next time we need to get there earlier as things sell out quick and no rainchecks. We can eat ribs four times for the cost of one rib dinner out after that sale. We have already enjoyed ice cream cones on the porch swing with the fireflies coming out in the woods one evening.

    1. Lana, ice cream cones on the porch swing with the fireflies flying is a scene that takes me back to my childhood as that was a regular occurrence … but most of the time without the ice cream cone!!!

  4. That is awesome. We love BBQ chicken. I found bacon on sale for $1.99 so I bought 12. We had BLT's for dinner tonight since I worked all day and then had an appointment. I will take a BLT over McD's any day.

  5. What a great price for chicken! Your husband was really lucky to get meat for such an amazing price. Great Job!!!!

    This week I stocked up on Bulls Eye barbeque sauce. I bought 4 for $0.97 each. I use BBQ sauce in the winter as well, but it only goes on sale for these prices around spring/early summer. I make sure to stock up on some when it does. Would have bought more, but I have BBQ sauce that currently needs to be used up in the pantry.

  6. Patsy what a fantastic deal on chicken legs your husband did so well and has good "pantry stocking eyes" just as my DH does. That is fabulous and will supply so many meals for your family :) .

    Well dare I say it after saying I was sick of grocery and other shopping I did it again :).

    From the gardens and now free -
    - We blanched and froze 30 more double meal packs of sweet potatoes from the gardens.
    - Separated 74 g of sage, 18 g of English lavender and 9 g of French lavender picked and dried from the gardens saving $20.77 over purchasing it.
    - Picked another huge lot of fresh English and French lavender from the gardens.
    - Picked 340 g of cherry tomatoes from the gardens saving another $4.76 over buying it.

    With our pantry stocking budget we banked it all to carry over and it is earning bank interest :).

    From being under in other budget categories and not using our pantry budget we purchased -
    - 6.04 kg of thin beef sausages on half price special saving $24 on usual prices to stock the freezer up with. The prices were too good to miss out on as they are usually an expensive brand of really nice sausages to stocking up our meat freezer with.

    With our medical budget and being way under in other budget categories we purchased -
    - 6 x 200 pk multivitamins and 6 packets of butter menthol's lozenges on good specials saving $40.68 on usual prices.

    We will be heading into town today to do some postage of items I sold on the internet and we heard that a department store in town is selling out everything at ridiculously low prices so we will have a look at their winter clothing and other needed items for the home too.

    Yes I am still sick of shopping :).

    2. Hi Patsy and you are right no matter how we look at it we have to eat so therefor shopping is a necessity and thank you for your encouragement :). Keeping a look out for really good specials certainly makes our budget go a lot further in our home and other's no doubt.

  7. We got several stock-up items this past weekend. Charcoal briquets were $3.99/15 lb bag. We got 5. Mayo and Miracle Whip were 99c. I got 4 mayos, and 1 MW. I got 5 large ketchups for 99c each, and the juice for the weekly freebie. Other than that, we got very few groceries, just a couple of things as needed. I'm getting garden produce now, so it really stretches the stored food.
