So, I need some help from you experienced frugal mama's. We not too long ago bought a deep freezer and I am trying to learn to use it. I made a list of the items that for our family, make the most sense to stock up on when on sale. These items are ground beef, roast, chicken, butter and pasta. I do all my shopping at Target because my DH works at their HQ and we get 15% off. So, what I am wondering is, at what point do you consider the cost to be so low that you stock up?
I went to Target and wrote down the regular cost of these items and plan to keep that in my purse but what price do you all feel it should fall below before I buy, say, 15 of them.
This is the current cost of these items:
Frozen Chicken breasts: $3.08/lb
Fresh Chicken Breasts: $4.10/lb
Chuck Roast (great crockpot food: $4.69/lb
Thanks in advance for your help. I am planning to quit my job and stay home with my girls in a few months and every little bit saved helps.
