What We’re Buying for the Food Bank This Week (October 3 – October 9)
Three weeks into Food Bank Challenge #2, we have acquired $1,808 worth of food, spending just $312. This 82% savings rate is pretty good considering that the totals include 105 jars of Skippy peanut butter (along with 528 other food items)!
On this coming Saturday, October 5, Publix starts a new grocery advantage sale. The Wolf chili deals looks like a winner, and there are a few others that look promising but need more research. If you see any great deals in the new Advantage Flyer, please share them with us.
Here are the top targets for this week’s Listelope:
