Weekly sales appropriate for storage

Not much out there this week that’s good for just storing as is.

Costco has $2.50 off a case of low-sodium chicken broth.  And $50 off the fancy red Kitchenaid. Also $5 off of Van Houte coffee 80-pack which brings it to just under 50 cents a pod.  (Still bad for the environment, I’m trying to use the mini pod and my own coffee more often, but it’s just so darn easy at 6am)

No Frills has has mixed beef and pork, ground together $2.97/ lb.  This will need freezing or canning, but if you’re a fan of freezer meals or ready made canned food, this is great! They also have chicken drumsticks or thighs for $2.27/ lb, same caveat as above.  Also Rooster Brand coconut milk 88 cents/ can.  I bought 24 of that, so judge accordingly!

Independent has PC (Keurig) pods $17.99/ 40, great price.  PC Blue menu cereal or granola, asst sizes up to 750g $3.49.Dole 100% Juice, 12 cans (34-355ml) $5.99. Maxwell House ground coffee, 925g can $8.99.  PC pure maple syrup, 500ml $6.99.Huy Fong Sriracha hot chili sauce,740 mL $2.88

Savoury protein bars #1

image

Attempt #1. A bit crumbley, and bland.   Needs more salt, more spices, and more pumpkin puree.   Maybe some sriracha sauce.
But almost entirely from food storage! Dried navy beans, hemp protein powder, spices, canned pumpkin. …
The recipe is adjusted from the Ultimate Power Bar recipe I posted a while back.
When I get it perfect, I’ll post this specific recipe.

Target starts liquidation soon.

As much as I loathe US big box stores coming up here,  paying minimum wage and part time hours without benefits,  and driving Canadian stores out if business or just buying them to close them down,  screwing up our economy,  increasing the number of working poor and screwing up our employment and poverty stats….
What was my point?
Oh yeah, I really loath Target applying for bankruptcy protection while owing $5 BILLION in back taxes, rent and wages,  and paying the failed CEO millions in severance. …
Right…. The liquidation sales may be worth going to.  They apparently have warehouses of stuff (which never made it onto the shelves while they were open) which will he marked up to 80% off.  Starting as soon as next week,  depending on which news sources you believe.
I went to the clearance racks after Halloween and found skull shaped bottles marked from $4.99 to $1.50. 
So I may go look for canning stuff, food storage and organizing stuff. … Things that will cost them a fortune to sell to me.
Especially ethnic foods,  slow cookers, canning jars…
