If you leave the store with all the deals and feel like there is no way to make a meal out of them, hopefully this can help.  This week it’s all about meats and veggies.  I’m pondering getting the casseroles together and freezing them for another day.

  • Squash Casserole
    Yellow or Zucchini Squash 99¢ lb.
    Nabisco Ritz Crackers, $1.39
    • Rainflowerfire

      I guess you probably don't have Winn-Dixies in your area since you don't have a tab for them, but until Wednesday, Winn Dixie had ground chuck for $1.89/lb.

        Check under the “Other” tab listed in the Grocery Store Deals section above.

      Thanks for these. I like Publix but am having a hard time coming up with great deals and menus since I've stopped buying the unhealthy foods and started trying to eat/cook better, healthy foods for my family. These are a help. Also, would you please consider adding Earth Fare to your website? I have gone there a few times with great intentions and just got overwhelmed, when I'm there (with my 2 young girls). I think it would be a great addition to your site for those, who like me, want to really improve their health, weight, and children's lives without spending an arm and a leg. Thank you.

      Yes – Earth Fare would be great! I agree with you regarding eating healthy. My Mom had a double bypass not long ago – and loves the idea of couponing however she thinks that all the “deals” and “coupons” pertain to unhealthy, very processed fare. It's never “perimeter of the store” items. I do agree with her – and switched my habits and have now lost 20 lbs. I would love to be able to find deals on healthy food or for stores like Earth Fare. If you continue to load up on junk food, canned soups, sugary cereal, cake/brownie mixes, frozen entree's etc. it won't do your health or waist line any favors- plus I don't want to serve all this junk to my family for the same reasons. It really does merit note that most of the “deals” fall into the aforementioned catagories. Any advice from any one out there?

      As for “healthy” eating… I don't buy a lot of the junk either, but I do manage to use Publix and Winn Dixie to feed my family of 5 (and I'm pregnant) for $60-70/week with coupons. I use a LOT of frozen veggies, canned tomatoes and broths, cheeses (like Cabot, Kraft or Sargento) and other healthy “staples” and make mostly from-scratch kind of meals. My daughter also has celiac disease so I have to cook with some “weird” stuff too.

      There ARE foods that are good for you on the inside aisles if you are careful and know what to look for in the ingredients. Our income does not allow us to buy a lot of organic items, but keeping it more veggie laden than meat and cutting the quantity of sugar and HFCS, goes a long way for those of us who can't afford another option. (We already have cut cable, phone, insurance limits, gas/driving and still can barely pay our mortgage and utilities – its not like we're choosing cable TV over organic food.)

        That's amazing! I WANT to do the same thing, but I'm planning challenged to begin with. Any way you could email me some of your staple recipes?

      Thanks for the recipe links. The squash casserole was delicious and I love that you did the thinking for me!!
