Targeting Run

September 24th, 2017 at 11:48 am

Sundays after church is my trip to Target 🎯. I have decided to buy meat that's on sale and create my meal plan from what I have purchased.

There was 1lb (93/7 ) ground beef for $1.89, this was with the $4 off coupon. The fiancé was with me chitchatting, that caused me to miss the cashier, not taking the $4 off one of the packages, so now I have to go back 😑.

We picked up Tyson chicken, 3lbs for $4.99 and a 12 pack of pork chops for $5.99. I'd say we did pretty good.

Today we started week 5 of Financial Peace University and the topic was on impulse purchases. Of course while in Target the BF made an impulse purchaseπŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ™„
I explained to him that the extra $5 he spent on candy, we could have applied to the debt snowball.

Hopefully he'll get it

    Smart move to buy meat on sale and plan around it!

    Coincidentally, You Tube featured a series of home cooks making incredible variations of Pork Chop dinners a couple of days ago. I likewise bought the loss leader, bone in, family pack pork chops. It's our habit to add different combinations of spices and packaging in zip bags to freeze until ready to bake, braise, fry, crock pot, BBQ and sauce. It is like travelling around the world making a meal based on different cultures or side dishes.

    Hi Snafu, would you mind sharing the YouTube link? I'm always looking for something different

    We have a standing house rule where we each get one throw-in during grocery shopping. The limit is $20, and it's usually way less than that. We typically use it on some sort of snack that we like that others in the house may not. My husband used to use his on these expensive meal replacement bars from BJ's, but they discontinued them. I usually use mine on Babybels since they're more expensive than typical grocery items, but I absolutely love them.

    Maybe implementing a throw-in rule with a dollar limit you're comfortable with will help him to be more judicious in his choices.
