Shopping Around the World

March’s issue of shopping around the world is today’s major subject.

The first item is milk. This item was bought at Save On Foods. Superstore milk though a bit cheaper goes sour way faster.

A 4 litre jug, which is just over a US gallon is $4.95.

Tomatoes on the vine were bought at the Real Canadian Superstore.

The price was $2.47 a pound.

For a canned item, we chose Del Monte Cream Corn.

The price of the Del Monte Cream Corn at Superstore was $1.44 for 398ml.

A homemade dish was next on the list. Mom likes Tuna Helper Au Gratin as a quick dish but yummy. She adds various things laying around the kitchen. This time she used some frozen peas from the garden, dried green onions from the garden and a bit of green peppers from the garden. Almost forgot a few leftover beans from last might and some of the herbs she grows. Tuna Helper cost’s $2.50 at Save On Foods.

Mom uses Clover Leaf solid white albacore tuna. The price was $2.50 at Superstore for a 170 gram can.

So this meal cost mom about $6.00 if all the little extras are included.

The last item was a Random Item. Mom chose Mini Wheats. A 700 gram box cost $3.77 on sale at Superstore.

That is our shopping for the month.

Mom and I planted more Cilantro, sweet peas and Buttercup Squash today too. Hope these little seeds do better than their predecessors.
