Budget 2010: Updated

Part of my new years resolution is to keep track of all of my grocery purchases.  I want to see where I spend/save the most money.  I encourage you to do the same. Each Saturday I will post an updated list.  I think it will be neat to see what stores work for different people in different parts of the country.

Right now I’m not too happy with my %, however, I had almost drained  most of my stockpile the end of last year.  Rebuilding is in progress and a little better strategized I think.  I’m still purchasing items for donations and for family members just with a different monetary goal.

This one was listed on Craigslist. You should be able to find a better list in the legal notices section of your paper. You can also just call the facilities and ask when they are. There are a couple around here that do them on a regular basis. Watch for my post Tuesday about how to “shop” these auctions.


Where does one find out about these auctions???
