$5 or Less Pantry Challenge: 7/27/2019

It's time to share how we're building our pantries with $5 or less.

Remember, this $5 is not part of the weekly groceries budget. It is set aside to be used just for stocking up in any area of our pantries.   
Here's what I added to my pantry this week …


… canning lids!!!
We didn't find any good sales or clearance grocery items this week so I picked up these canning lids to add to the food preserving part of my pantry.
I never want to be in the middle of canning and realize I don't have enough lids so when the opportunity arises, I purchase them whether I need them at the time or not!
Each box costs $2.18 so I spent $4.36 this week!

What about you, what did you add to your pantry this week with your $5 allotment?  How will you use it?

  1. I have to remember that canning lids are a priority and store them as well.

  2. We have added a number of school supplies including glue, erasers, glue sticks, binder to replace a worn out one and labels for freezing. I don't know the total but it was all a great deal.

    1. Lana, this is the time of the year to stock up on any type of stationary items. I do the same thing!

  3. Went back to the No Frills sale and bought another litre of UHT milk - $1.75 plus 6 more cans of vegetables at 44 cents each.

  4. You're right, you never want to run out of lids. That was a good purchase since you couldn't find anything on sale.

  5. Dear Patsi,
    You can never have too many lids (or jars!). Good thinking.
    Love, Kelsey

  6. Broccoli hit our summer stock up price point of $1/bunch this past week. Hubby bought 22 bunches. We used 1 bunch in a dinner meal. The rest was cut, blanched and frozen. At the same time, the large freezer bag of fresh green/yellow beans from our garden was also blanched and frozen. I am very pleased the freezer is starting to fill up again with healthy produce for my family to consume during our long Canadian winter, when fresh produce skyrockets to ridiculous prices in the grocery stores!

  7. I spent $5.01 this week on four cans of sweetened condensed milk and one can of evaporated milk.

    Rosanne had a post a little while back where she mentioned picking up canning lids once a month (at least I think that's what she said!) and I thought that was a good idea. I've started picking them up every other week or so, especially now that they are starting to be on sale.

    1. Jenn, you must have found a good deal to get four cans of sweetened condensed milk and a can of evaporated milk for $5.01! That's great! I've made it a practice for several years to stay stocked up on canning lids, it's just not something you want to be with out!!!

  8. I try to pick up lids whenever I can find them on sale too. You can never have too many! We canned 18 quarts of veggie soup, 25 pints of tomatoes and 14 pints of salsa last week.

    1. Lana, canning lids have certainly increased in price in the last few years.

  10. Happened on .99 a bottle of lime juice at the Amish store. They were withing several years yet of expiration, so bought 5 bottles. There are several ways we like to use lime juice and I usually can't find it this cheap.

    1. Judy, I have lime juice in my pantry that was on clearance and had a good expiration date too.
