If it was a bag loaded with ample amounts of groceries and you are just across town then sure go back. If it is out of your way you may have to buy the groceries again next time you go grocery shopping unless of course you need the products right away for a recipe. If the grocery store went out of their way for you to make sure you got your groceries what did they do?

Did you find any coupons? If so share the details in the comment section of this post where you found it and what the coupon is for with expiry. Surprisingly we found coupons around Zehrs and even better during the week they had sample booths around the store which is very uncommon to see. Normally they have samples on the weekends for customers.
The best part was the coupons they offer. I did grab a coupon for you all to see though. It was the frozen pizza rolls. Click the photo to enlarge it. You may also substitute items in order to stick to your grocery budget to make it work. Nobody is perfect, heck we struggle with this part of our budget like many people do. This is why the grocery game challenge was created to not only show you that we are like everyone else but to bring us all together to work as a team to get our budgets on track. If you have just joined The Grocery Game Challenge get ready to dive deep into your grocery budget and learn just where you are spending, how much you are spending and what you are saving.
Feel free to read all the above posts that I linked to above which I feel are relevant to learning about the grocery budget and grocery shopping in general.
I use MarkO. It is a reminder app and I never forget to buy my groceries again.
The app allows you to set up a location based reminder with two options: first you can set a reminder with a category of place as grocery store or supermarket, and second you can set up the specific grocery store, then MarkO will remind you by sending you notification each time you pass by near a any grocery store in the town or if you set up specific store, then in front of it.
It helped me a lot with this problem. I bought some the first day and went back day two. We go through blueberries and raspberries like crazy in our house. And, I still wanted to do jam this year, but did a freezer jam instead. The blueberries bought the first day were to consume and they are in phenomenal shape. The blueberries bought the next day 2.
The remainder were cleaned up and frozen for baking and smoothies. We go through huge amounts of berries with smoothies, so this was a phenomenal find. The first receipt for blueberries at RCSS should have been. I ended up with a total of 21 pints over the two days. It was a great deal on the berries. We used to have raspberry bushes but I took them all out last year. Great shop Angela. You get ballot 7.
Got my shops for the first week of June. A good start at least and just a couple of trips over to Foodland. Foodland, May 30 1 can pineapple Foodland, June 3 2 pasta sauce 1. So I am under for the week and even got some meat and garlic bread for the freezer. The ham was pricey but the boys liked it with the salads I left them when I went to London to babysit the grandson.
Plus they have been on meat that we eat regularly like ground pork and sausages which really help the budget! Looks like I will have a little more time to save up for my strawberries as theatre was saying that the berries will be late this year due to the cold spring we have had. You were under for the month, congrats! What do you pickle? Is there a bulk barn in your town?
You get ballot 5. It certainly is hit or miss for the half off stickers!!! I grab what I can when I find a good deal that way!! I used to help my Mom with her pickling back when I was a kid. We made bread and butter pickles, 4 day think a sweet mixed pickle , pickled beets, mustard beans, dill I think…..

The green tomato relish was a nice mellow flavour, not a pickle relish. I really should dig out those recipes and see what kind of trouble I can get into there!!! The nearest Bulk Barn is in Stratford so it means going out of town. I do go to the Country Bulk store in Stratford as my cousin works there and I can get what I want and get caught up with the family news while shopping if Gloria is working.
I might even just give it away as well.

What are mustard beans? They sound good. I love homemade pickling of any kind. My wife had a pickled bean in her Virgin Tomato beverage at a restaurant once. She said it was different but good. How many people live in your village? There are roughly people in town here, might be more now as there are a couple of housing developments going up…. I have a recipe here for a rhubarb jam that uses the rhubarb, sugar and strawberry jello powder, I used to make it back when the kids were small. But i think if i did and it was of a good enough value i would definetly drive back!!!
My shop was a bit larger this month as we have pretty much cleared out half of our freezer stockpile!
