I am going to go to the store tomorrow and their are some really good buys on some 'fresh' food.
Potatoes at only 9.9 cents a pound ($.99 for a ten pound bag)
Sweet Potatoes at 39 cents a pound
butter quarters (4 sticks like you normally get) $1.59 a pound.
I was thinking of getting:
- at least 3 of the ten lb bags of potatoes (I love them and they are a cheap staple of my diet)
-at least 5 pounds of the sweet potatoes.
-at least 3 of the butters.
this would be less than $10.00 total. I was wondering how long the potatoes would last stored in the fridge, also the sweet potatoes..how long would they last in the fridge? Also I was going to just freeze 2 of the butters. I have done this before and it has not been a problem. Is it safe?
I also tend to buy bread on sale and freeze it as well-never had any problems. Hell buying bread at a dollar a loaf, and peanut butter at a dollar a jar can feed me for quite a while in lean $$$ times ya know?
*potatoes, sweet potatoes, and peanut butter are all things I love and are actually very nutritious and cheap...they are staples along with bread and rice, pasta, and beans for me.
