A no-cost food month???

December 1st, 2006 at 08:26 pm

OK, now that's just impossible. That said, I am looking at my food bill for the coming week (or two) to be probably $10 (at most).

Here's the deal: First I got a turkey before thanksgiving very inexpensive ($5 for a large turkey). It came out great, and I have been eating lots of turkey the past week, and have enough to last another ?two? weeks (probably more). I also have plenty of drink (milk, juice) to last another two weeks. I am still working my way through all the soda I got for free with the Coke & Pepsi rebate offers a few months ago. They should last 'til the middle of January. I still have cereal from the buy 8 boxes, get $20 rebate offer from a month ago as well. And other things like ingredients for making my lunches are in plenty supply as well.

And now I have this: I just did a mystery shop of takeout food at a good restaurant tonight. That food will probably last me the whole weekend. (crab cakes, grilled chicken, ceasar salad, popcorn shrimp, more...)

And then next week is the topper. I have a free dining and river cruise certificate I will be using one evening next week. It is a five course meal where I will be getting rib-eye steak. I have set up a *mostly* blind date with a friend of a co-worker for the cruise, so I hope to have a good time with her (I say mostly blind, because I have a picture and talked with her on the phone).

If you add in a train show I will be working at the following weekend, where we will get basic food for free, and well, I think you can see my food bill for the near future is going to be scraping the bottom. And its not like I will be eating junk either. You gotta enjoy times like this.

    Very nice! Buying in bulk when you find great deals really pays off as you are finding.

    Please though, double check the expiry on the milk. I've bought milk ahead and had the start of my day spoiled!

    Thanks for the concern, but no problem there. The milk is good for a few more days. What I have started to do is when I buy a gallon, I use old juice containers, and put 2/3 of the gallon immediately into two containers, then put them in the freezer. I have found this saves the milk perfectly. And since I bought the milk recently, using the frozen milk should last me until mid December at least.

    I met my husband on a blind date. We married less than 3 months later and our 30th anniversary is in May. Good luck and have fun!!
