Weekly Shopping - $124.98

This week I knew I was buying peaches so I planned to shop very little.

Wednesday I stopped in at Haggen to see what kind of deals they had.  NOT MUCH!   Produce was reduced only 5% and dry goods were 10%.  The bulk foods were 20% and the candy aisle was 20 or 30% (don't remember).  There were also some 20% off things in the health and beauty aisle and eye car was 30% off.  I'm planning to check in this week sometime and see if there have been any big reductions.  Anway - I needed lettuce for a "new baby" meal I was delivering Thursday and I have been out of baking powder nearly all summer so I picked these up for $4.09.

I guess I didn't need to stop at the store Wednesday morning because later in the day all this was given to me by the kitchen director at our church.  There was a big receipt of gleaned food and much of the produce, dairy, & drinks was a few days past the "best by" date.   I know that food is good several days and sometimes even weeks past that date, so I was happy to receive it.  Especially since it relieved so much of my grocery bill this week!
