ShopRite Can Can – Yearly Pantry Stockup

Earlier this week, I said I would explain how I have a seemingly unending pantry of vegetables. The secret is now revealed.

I went shopping in January. In four different trips to the store, I not only saved a ridiculous amount of money, but I also have enough canned vegetables, canned beans, canned tomatoes, coffee and olive oil to last the rest of 2015…yes. The rest of 2015. Beyond actually.

The Source Of My Power! That’s supposed to be the Chrysler Building by the way.

Every January, ShopRite does it’s annual “can-can sale.” The focus on the sale is its canned vegetables; however, they also have plenty of other great deals as well.

Save 26 Dollars Buying Cereal In Bulk

Dry cereal is one of the staples of the American home. Whether as part of a complete breakfast or served dry as an afternoon snack, it’s a great quick go-to food on certain days. One of the problems though is that this breakfast staple doesn’t exactly come at a staple price.

People buy certain foods out of necessity. “Oh, I need cereal,” you may say, so you will put it on your list, walk past the cereal aisle in the store and toss the box in your basket without giving a thought about the price. After all, you buy cereal all the time.  But cereal is EXPENSIVE! A box of cereal can cost over 5 dollars when not on sale.

I’m going to show you how I saved $26 bucks buying Alpha-Bits cereal (my daughters favorite) by shopping in bulk during a great sale compared to its normal everyday price.
