I just love the Hormel pre-marinated pork tenderloin, but I almost never buy it because they're $10 each! And the ones I like the most (the teryaki flavor) are always smaller, but still cost the same. Well, today I got 7 of them. That's right, 7. Because the "use or freeze by" date was today, they had them marked down to $1 each! I couldn't believe it! I bought every single one they had left! Guess what we're having for dinner tonight?
Even with that wonderful find, I learned today something Jerry has been telling me for a couple months now - I need a new method for grocery shopping! Because I shop the sale ads at three different stores and match the sales to coupons and stock up, I go to at least three stores every week, and often it is four or five. When I am by myself, I can get this done in a couple hours tops since I am only buying the things on sale at all but one store, then the last store I buy the sale items plus anything I need for the week. This saves me more money than I could ever have believed before I started shopping this way, so I am willing to continue to go to multiple stores. The problem is that children have way too much energy and not enough patience for this method, especially when it is 93 degrees out at 9:30 AM. I have to start going when I can go by myself. After today, this is a must.
