Good for you! That's the only way to do it. Our store is getting weird on loss leaders and claiming they are out of stock. I'm tired of playing that little game and make them give me a rain check. It's been years and years since I was able to get manufacturers' coupons. They don't have them in the local paper and if I print them out I usually end up buying a cheaper brand when I get to the store so that's a waste. Here, there is still one brand (US) of beans/corn/peas that is still .50/ea so I've been stocking up on those. Tuna is never under .50 but I'm hoping for a sale around Easter to restock. Delmonte spaghetti sauce was .89 (Hunt's was .99 and I won't buy any Hunts brand). Mushrooms are about .69. The best unit price on chili was Wolf Brand (no beans) 19 oz at $1.50 so bought some for the same reason as you. For some reason lately, you have to hunt, but national brands are getting to be cheaper than store brand.
Resizing packages is common place these days. A 32 oz. jar of mayo is now 30 oz., a can of tuna from 7 oz. to 5 oz., etc.
Bread is ridiculous.
3 and $4 for english muffins.

This week’s thread coming up....
March 5th Thread
This is classic gumbo, which I love. You can also use the same recipe but substitute diced chicken for the seafood (probably wouldn’t use the fish stock, however). Serve over rice...amazing!
We love Rachel Ray’s chicken satay with orange scented rice. We have it once a week for supper with leftovers for lunch another day.
I use the lesser amount of chicken and add extra varied vegetables, broccoli, peas pods, mushrooms, bean sprouts, etc. Sometimes I have s many veg I make 2x the sauce. Speaking of the sauce we add it to the meat and veg in the pan then pour the whole thing over the rice. We are having this Monday night.
I don’t like the smell of fish sauce. If I don’t smell it I can eat things with it in them, but if I get a whiff I am finished.
Thats why folks add garlic to it.
