Shopping the Case Lot Sales
I try to go to the Case Lot Sales held on base to stock up on things, but there are times that I honestly don't see anything that I need and I am not one to just buy just because it's on sale. If I don't need it, I don't buy it, plain and simple.
Our local Base Commissary is having a Case Lot sale this weekend, so this morning the kiddos and I headed over to see what was on sale and this one actually ended up having quite a few things that I needed, so let me show you what I came away with.
Sliced Ham was on sale, for about $2 some were $3, so I got 4 which I've popped in the freezer.
Caprisun box of 4 packs - $5
Mac & Cheese (yes you'll see mac and cheese in this house lol) - $6
Martha White Blueberry Muffin mix, box of 12 - $5
Arizona Tea 2 x 12 pack - $3.00 each
Coffeemate 50 count - $1.49
Shampoo 6 count - $4
Conditioner 6 count - $4
Hamburger patties were on sale as well. Packs of 4 for - $2.00
Personal pizzas - 99c each
Large 16 inch pizza - $6
BBQ Chips - $2
24 pack water - $3
Mission Tortilla rounds, HUGE pack - $3
Xtra laundry detergent - $5
Chef Michaels 11.5 lbs bag - $3 each
Big box of assorted cereal 10 count (my kids love the individual boxes) - $10
Total after coupons = $80
Not bad at all. I'll have to go back tomorrow to do my grocery shopping but at least I have a few things that will last me quite a while, especially the shampoo/conditioner, the tortilla chips, the cereal and the dog food etc.

The great thing about buying in bulk is being able to freeze whatever you need. I came home, got everything packed away and after I cleared out the fridge for tomorrow's grocery, I had a few things that I hadn't made that were on the menu for the past two weeks. So I made them anyway and froze them for future meals.
Like this wonderful Mini Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches, great for a snack, a lunch or even a light dinner.
