Peanut butter and jelly for lunch with banannas for dessert.

do you really think you can get all of these things for $35?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 558772

To do this for $35, you have to shop for sale items in combination with Sam's bulk. So, yes you could do it if you got a roaster chicken on sale for buy 1 get one free like they had last week at the local market. Then you would dip into your 20lb. bag of rice. Eat the oatmeal that you bought at Sams. The spices you also bought bulk. So yes it could be done, but not with an empty pantry and all from the supermarket at full price. The key is to buy strictly items on sale, and combine with your existing bulk stock.

I didn't read all the pages but did anyone mention veg and fruit on the "ripe" table, just cut off the over-ripe parts. I have used potatoes, bananas, apples and other veg. In season you can even get pricey fruit like cantaloupe and berries

Then there is the dented can (be careful, inspect to make sure it will be safe to eat) cereals, day old pastry and pasta. Somebody mentioned beans, these are very reasonable.

Dollar stores also have good deals, esp. on labels that are unfamiliar to you. Perfectly good food only many people pass them over for an expensive brand name they know.

In the deli you can ask for the ends of cheese and deli-meat (when I was very strapped for cash when my daughter was small, I used to use these all the time. You can do a lot with ends of ham, even roast beef and cheese, bologna etc.

Also never be to proud to beg ask for these ends, also the meat dept. has bones in the back (dog bones) most have meat on and will make real good soup.



 Quoting: broke 625854


No dollar store here
No reduced produce here
No deli ends
The meat dept. sells the bones
Once in a while there are some bakery items on the reduced rack - stale shit they try to sell for half price.

Unless you're one tough son of a bitch and can earn a minimum of $30/hour, you'll freeze/starve to death. lol

Re: Recession Proof GLP...$35 dollars a week for groceries ideas? to feed 4 to 6 people
I think you could do it, but just barely and the low budget meals would soon become monotonous due to the lack of variety. I did find some great deals at my local grocer this weekend....

Spaghetti sauce - bottled Ragu $.88, canned Primo $.99

Primo pasta - $.99

Gold Seal canned chunk light tuna - $.69

Gold Seal canned pink salmon - $.99

Can't Believe it's Not Butter margarine - $.99

Pork loin roast - $1.49 lb.

English muffins - 12 for $1.25

Fruitopia juices - $.99

Etc., unfortunately you can't find everything you need on sale, without travelling to various locations.


Where the hell do you live!!!!????

I haven't seen prices like that since the 70s!!!

Granted, I live in Hawaii but I do travel and see food prices in other places.

Okay, now get one of your members to shop the day old bread counters, too, and summer time with window screens you can dehydrate local fruits and veggies, home grown or ask your grocer when they are culling if you might have some for your chickens. Do,not tell them you will process this for food as they fear law suits and shy away from this. You can get friendly with your local grocery store, someone there to do this for you.
Once you( your group) has gathered bulk rice, beans, all dry goods and salt, seasonings, etc.

The key is bulk foods(fiber) that will keep you full for the longest amount of time. If you are hungry an hour later, you have wasted your money.

Best food ever for bulk: Beans

This soup is VERY filling. One cup will keep you satisfied until the next meal. It makes ALOT.

-2 pounds dried white navy beans
-Four quarts hot water
-1.5 pounds smoked ham hocks
-1 onion, chopped
-2 tablespoons butter
-Salt and Pepper to taste

Wash the navy beans and run hot water through them until they are slightly whitened.

Place the beans in a pot with the hot water. Add the ham hocks; simmer approximately 3 hours in a covered pot, stirring occationally.

Remove ham hocks and set aside to cool.

Dice the meat and return to soup.

Lightly brown the onion in butter. Add to the soup.

Before serving, bring to a boil and season with salt and pepper.

Store extra soup in refrigerator and eat throughout the week.

Learned about Angel Food Ministries here on GLP- but for those who haven't heard of it, it's not a food bank, just much less expensive than buying on your own. No membership, it is run through churches throughout the nation. You can put in your zip and see if there is one near you. Good stuff! You can order as much as you want.

You all seem to have missed this since no one has commented. If you need to save some money you have to check this out. We all know we'll avoid the "Beans & Rice" meals on a daily basis as long as we possibly can. This site gives the extra wiggle room.

Thanks Snark for posting this, Wow what an incredible site. Even though my nearest one on this list is several hours away it looks to be worth the drive once per month.

I understand that the food ministry probably meets a need and is a great service.

Please don't put down the beans and rice, or beans and cornbread dinners. Some of us were raised on that and it is very good food and is not a tiresome diet. I do admit that on Sundays we usually got fried chicken, mashed 'taters, gravy and green beans.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 625818


Oh no no no.... I never intended to offend and I'm ever so sorry if I did. These foods have been staples of my family's recipes for generations and remain that way. Dinner tonight is Ham Hocks & Beans with cornbread...lol. The situation I intended to refer to would be when we've simply run out of the items needed to mix it up a bit. More to the extreme end of 'doom', if you will. To anyone near that end, this site could be a life-saver. For those who aren't, it can ease the strain or allow for the return of some items that had to be sacrificed.

Add dried egg powder/products.


:DJthumup:
 Quoting: DaJavoo


Dried egg powder has a very high concentration of fluoride.

quote:

The Environmental Working Group, Beyond Pesticides and the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) challenged the maximum legal limits for the fluoride-based pesticide in foods, which have been set at levels that dwarf the amount allowed in tap water. In just one case, the EPA is allowing 900 parts per million (ppm) of fluoride in dried eggs, as opposed to the maximum 4 ppm allowed in tap water.

One third of the nation's eggs are sold and consumed in dried, reconstituted form.
The groups noted that 900 ppm set for dried eggs is extremely close to the amount used in toothpaste (1,000 ppm), a level that is considered toxic if consumed in greater than pea sized portions.

"How can the EPA consider 900 ppm in eggs safe, while the Food and Drug Administration directs parents to call poison control centers if their children consume more than a pea sized portion of toothpaste with fluoride at 1,000 ppm?" asked Paul Connett, PhD, Executive Director of FAN. "Unlike toothpaste, eggs are meant to be eaten, not spit out."

:Beans:

$4.72 for 15 cans at Sam's club...
 Quoting: Gradient


Yes. These are the only beans I will use in my chili. One can of the original and one can with jalapenos.

Take 5 pounds of hamburger, brown and drain.
Add 2 cans of diced tomatoes with jalapenos along with a packet of Williams chili seasoning. I also add a couple more jalapenos and onion (diced) from my garden. Then maybe a small can of tomato paste to thicken it up a bit. Oh and a couple cloves of wild garlic. (I found a stash just outside of town.) I let all this simmer most of the day to break down the hamburger. This may sound funny but, while it's simmering I smell the aroma to know whether to add more chili powder. Some folks cook by taste, I cook by smell, :)

When it's about done, I add the beans noted above. (Don't want to over cook them as they get mushy.) BTW you could double the amount of beans to make it go further.

I eat it with Krispy crackers. The next day I'll heat some up and put it with a couple of hot dogs and buns. (Everytime you reheat it it gets better.)

For those who think maybe I'm to heavy on the jalapenos, not to worry. Jalapenos are fairly mild. (1500 to 15,000 Scoville Units. Habanreos on the other hand are 855,000 + Scoville Units.

At any rate, if it gets to hot for you, just add a couple of slices of Velvetta cheese. That will make it milder.

It may sound like a lot of chili but every time I make it, it won't last 2 days. You can freeze it though so as not to have to eat it all week.

For you M&C and pinto bean lovers.....Try slicing up some Polish sausage to add to the mix.

Learn to be an 'Opportunavoire'. If meat is on sale or gifted to you eat it - if not, go vegetarian until it is.

Be flexible and create with your menus - create and alter your shopping list according to what's on sale.



Find or form a food co-op in your area. Even just a small group of friends and neighbors will give you more buying power.

Re: Recession Proof GLP...$35 dollars a week for groceries ideas? to feed 4 to 6 people
A big vat of chicken and dumplings is fairly inexpensive. All you need is a chicken, 2 carrots, 2 potatoes, 2 ribs celery, salt, flour, water, baking powder, baking soda.

In my case I don't need the chicken because my kids hunt Rough Grouse.

My entire family fishes and hunts. Every year we put up enough fish and game to feed the family for at least 9 months. Probably longer.


I thought about what I'd buy with $35, keeping in mind I wouldn't have to buy the staples we always have on hand. Things like salt, pepper, yeast, olive oil, sugar, shit like that.

If I didn't have any fish/game stocked up, here's the list of what I MAY be able to buy for $35
(Probably closer to $40+)


2 pounds rolled oats *bulk food section* $3
3 apples $1
4 bananas $1
1 large bag frozen mixed vegetables $2
1 big bunch green onions $1
1 pound dried Great Northern beans $1
5 lbs flour $4
1 pound brown rice $2
Two 18 packs eggs $6
2 pounds sharp cheddar $6
1 pound pork sausage $3
1 pathetic, scrawny chicken $5

Everything would have to be used very sparingly. Would have to make bread and biscuits.

Lots dry beans, and cheap cuts of meat that require long cooking times, like crock pot meals or hours on the stove top.

Farmers markets for any cheap produce in the winter, and grow your own in the spring and summer.

Making your own bread is cheap and easy as well as biscuits.
And buy powdered milk for any baking or cooking and save the real milk for a treat(You would be surprised how good milk taste when you have none for a while)

And lots of pasta dishes from mac and cheese to soups. It wont be fun but it can be done.

Remember the late 70's early 80's lots of gov cheese and butter etc.

Hey Paladin,

Great thread.

The key is to eat healthy and buy grains etc in bulk. I grind my own grain but someone mentioned feed grain please don't anyone not anymore there is a difference in "feed" grain vs. grains for people.

I make my own organic yogurt, granola, granola bars, nutrition bars, soups, stews, spaghetti sauce, alfredo sauce, ginger ale, cookies, pies, breads, forcaccia, pizzas, and they are so healthy and good.

Join a co -op if possible

Wheat ( use to make pizzas, breads etc)


Buy organic bulk

Honey

Sugar

Brown rice

Organic corn ( blue and yellow ) or organic corn meal

lentils

oatmeal ( make your own granola I make peanut butter, French, chocolate and many others ) Make granola bars, coconut oatmeal cookies, no bake cookies


Get whole chickens, make stock, soup, roasted chicken and a few casseroles or use the leftover meat in Chinese stir fry or fried rice. Get 3 to 4 meals out of a chicken if you have to.

Make minestrone soup , French lentil, lentil and chicken stew, Chicken soups , pinto bean burritos and freeze or take portions for lunch.

Healthy and great.

Re: Recession Proof GLP...$35 dollars a week for groceries ideas? to feed 4 to 6 people
If you can save some money each month out of your grocery allowance you can get dried vegetables from Walton Feed for pretty cheap.

A can of dried carrots is about $16.00, and a can of dried celery is about $10.00. Mix them together. This stuff makes good soup filler. Your other ingredients will go a lot farther.

Be aware though, that these veggies are well dried and need to be either soaked overnight before adding to soups, or cooked about as long as you cook your beans. That's another thing that makes them good to put into beans, you just throw everything into the pot and forget about it for a few hours, (low to medium heat), letting everything cook together. mmmm mmmm good!

Stay away from the dried cabbage, it discolors some time after the can is opened. And for some reason, we never could get the peas or the green beans to taste like they were done enough.

For thickening stews and soups, you can get #10 cans of powdered potatoes. The brand we use is Simplot true recipe. We get them at a local restaurant supply store that's open to the public. There must be a hundred pounds of potatoes in that one little can. You'll want to be careful when you first make it, because when you had water to it...it um EXPANDS... and I mean fast! So start with a half cup first and observe how much you can get out of it.

Stay away from potato _flakes_. Useless. Expensive.

Also available at restaurant supply stores:
25 lb bags of beans - any kind of bean you could want.
huge packages of pasta - again any kind you could want.
big packages of lentils.
big packages of split peas - both yellow and green.
buckets of honey are available at some places, but I get my honey from the local area because I use it for medicinal as well as sweetening purposes.
powdered eggs - good for baking, but I don't like how they taste when scrambled alone. Although, if you mix something else with it, per the egg recipes in earlier posts, they might taste okay.

Keep a list of the ingredients you use the most, take it with you when you shop and look for those items in big containers. If you can get a whopper container of something, it'll save you a lot of money in the long run, even though it costs more up front. Just keep the big one in a pantry or closet, and refill a smaller container for your kitchen when needed.

It takes some scrimping, but once you've got some food stores laid in, it becomes a lot easier to save your food money to get the larger size containers in future.

Good luck all.

You need to check the grocery store. Your pricing is low compared to what is usually available. In other words, we might get your price in a loss leader, but generally is not available for a lot of the stuff you quote.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 625818


Allrighty. Everything's checked out. The only thing underestimated is the ground beef. My estimates are on the left. Actual price is on the right. Here it is:

small turkey 15.00 aldi's or Meijers 9.99
saved 5.01
10 lb. potatoes 4.00 Meijers 2.97
saved 1.03
5 lb. flour 2.00 Aldi's 1.89
saved .11
corn meal .40 Aldi's .35
saved .05
oatmeal 1.50 Aldi's 1.49
saved .01
can corned beef 2.00 Aldi's 1.69
saved .31
head cabbage 1.00 Great Scot .48 lb.
saved .02
4 froz. veggies 4.00 Great Scot 10 for 10
1 head lettuce 1.00 Great Scot
1 lb. ground beef 2.00
small box sugar 1.00 Aldi's
jar applesauce 1.00 Aldi's

I was off by 6.54, but it was in my favor. Was off on the ground beef, but since Kroger has sirloin tip for 2.99, I'll get that and grind my own meat, taking 1 of my 6.00.

Since I'm still 5.54 ahead, I'll add 3 cantelopes at. 99 each on sale at Meijers, 1 lb. tomatoes on sale for .99 at Great Scot, and a pound of grapes for .89 from Meijers. I have .67 left. hayseed

I feel a little silly posting this on yet another thread, but if you value greens and the vitamins they bring, for god's sake go get some chard seeds and plant them in pots or in the ground. They are the toughest, most forgiving plants ever and you can just keep cutting off the outer leaves and they will keep making you greens all summer no matter how hot it gets, and all winter, at least down to about 21 fareinheight. Mostly bugs ignore them, and they seem to be disease free. They thrive in great soil but will do ok in poor soil. If your summers are very hot they will appreciate part shade. I no longer buy spinach, instead I have about fifteen of these ornamental beauties and I have all the free greens I want. I think they're going to go great with rice and beans when tshtf. In the meantime they are saving me several dollars a week on greens.
