    Good Afternoon Everyone,
    It has been a busy 2 days.

    Yesterday I had a meeting in a branch for a project we are working on, it will change the workflow in this branch so a number of people are involved.

    After my meeting I took Mom for a Chest X-Ray, she said she felt like how she did when had pneumonia, we have tested her and myself, it is negative so the doc sent her for an X-Ray as he said her chest sounded clear.

    Since we were out, I decided to do the grocery shopping. The X-Ray place is about 15 minutes away so I shopped my way there and home. Mom sat in the car well I did the shopping, most stores were only a few items in and out in under 10 minutes, I got:

    Food Basics:
    1 x Grapes $1.48/lb
    1 x Spaghetti Squash $1.28/lb
    4 x Beef Broth $1.44
    2 x Chicken Broth $1.44

    They did not have any of the passata they had on sale, maybe next week I will check again if I end up in a branch.

    Freshco:
    1 x Clementines 2lbs $2.50
    1 x Kiwi 600g $2.99
    1 x Avocado 4-pk $2.99
    2 x Eggs 18-pack $3.99

    No Frills:
    4 x Button Mushrooms $0.99
    3 x Broccoli $0.99
    3 x Orange Peppers $0.99/lb
    2 x Roma Tomatoes $0.99/lb
    3 x Cucumbers $0.99 + pts
    3 x Sugar 2 kg $1.79
    2 x NN Fries $2.00 + pts
    5 x Baguettes $0.88 + pts

    Loving all of the fresh produce sales this week and happy to restock our produce. But there still some additional things I needed and needed to go RCSS.

    Posting here in the frugal chatter thread seems kind of silly considering how much my receipt was at Metro this morning BUT......I redeemed enough AirMiles to save $110.00 !!
    Whoop whoop! OOP was $26.00. Only one of the 95 redeems will earn me back 25 BAM, but I wanted to get what I needed in one shop.

    Today I went to RCSS to grab what we needed there, I got:
    2 x Onions 10lbs $3.99
    1 x White Potatoes 10lbs $2.49
    1 x Apples 4lbs $4.99
    4 x Sour Cream $2.29

    Then since Costco is right there I went to Costco and got:
    1 x Croissants
    1 x Hamburger Buns
    1 X Sandwich Buns
    2 x Chicken Breasts
    1 x Spaghetti Squash 2-pack $5.99 for 7lbs
    1 x Butternut Squash 2-pack $5.99 for 7lbs
    1 x Ricotta
    1 x Romaine Lettuce
    1 x Caesar Dressing
    2 x Whipping Cream
    2 x Cheddar Cheese
    1 x Mozzarella
    1 x Greek Yogurt 3-pack
    2 x Nachos
    1 x Plain Chips
    1 x Salsa 2-pack
    1 x Maple Syrup
    1 x Italian Seasoning
    1 x Special K Bars
    1 x Facial Wipes

    I think that is all. I did notice prices are starting to creep up more at Costco, most things were $0.50 to $1 but still, making it harder to find a deal. I came in right around where I wanted to be $7 over but I had not planned on the squash or romaine (the romaine was a $1 more than buying 2 x 3-packs at No Frills but No Frills has a different branch and I am getting a lot of waste even after I dig for the best bag I can find).

    This weekend is going to be a food weekend, so much I want to get done for the freezers, I am all about the meal prepping right now.

    Also went to Mondoux a pet store in QC to purchase eve and stella dry food big bag...Not the same brand as the veterinary but veterinary brand too much cheaper for a big bag than the small bag at veterinary(45$)!!! But still 70$(3 x the size as a small bag), 10$ was darn taxes....But they like this brand and that seems to helps hers a little bit at least.Much better quality.

    Good Morning Everyone,
    Today will be a kitchen day. Lots to get done including there are still groceries to be put away, my produce bin is going to be bursting at the seams and I could be happier. I love it, so many options, oh it just makes my heart happy, on the opposite side it gives Mom anxiety when our fridge is this full.

    My to-do-list is a bit next level this weekend but excited to get it all done.

    Just having a cup of tea before I start my day.

    Happy Saturday Everyone.

    So for the past week I was so busy and no ambition to cooking dinner that I saw an annoucement of my chicken farm boutique they have a back to school boxe with 4 meals for 4 persons at 69$ expensive ...but I took it because the hassle free dinners seems the best options
    Everything was scelled and in portions
    So we had
    Spaghetti pasta big container of sauce with a boxe of pasta
    Chicken chili with a bag of tex mex shredded cheese and a package of naan bread..so good naan bread
    Chicken meatballs with mashed patatoes
    And Pastry shells with a chicken vol au vent sauce,.
    Hope to be back on track for meals planning tought...
