I do the same thing, retired and I do all the food shopping. I have the bonus card at three different large chain markets here within three miles from my house. I keep my freezers packed, my wife doesn't eat meat cuts, just chicken, fish, and some special burgers I make for her. I buy 2-3 whole in-the-bag standing rib roasts at Xmas every year, USDA choice, butcher them into a couple small roasts and thick cut boneless ribeye steaks, always under five buck a pound. Grind all my own burger meat, having a commercial grade vac-sealer is a bonus, nothing ever goes bad. Still getting whole yardbird, thighs, and legs for 98¢lb, don't waste money on wings, legs with the Vortex are better. I do notice coffee has gone thru the roof, I like whole bean Kona from Sam's Club and grind my own. $13.50 a few months ago, $19 last week. What the hell, gotta have coffee. RAYI only buy what is on sale in the weekly flyer. Both regular sale and digital coupon sale with the apps.
