I went to a mexican market this week. I have seen their sales ads in the past, but assumed that the quality of the produce would be poor! Boy was I wrong! I was able to get tomatoes 3lbs for $1 and oranges 6 lbs for $1! I feel like such a fool that I have been missing out all this time on such a great deal! This will be on my regular rotation of stores from now on!

I also took advantage of a Walgreens deal last week and got 6 jars of Ragu sauce and 2 jars of Peanut Butter for $1.92 total. This will add nicely to my stockpile!
