This week while shopping, you will see several ways to keep yourself on track for your grocery budget using The Daily Times sale ads.

By merging your shopping list and your budget as you meal plan, you can have a lower out-of-pocket expense.

This week at Food Lion, one of the inexpensive meats is chicken drumsticks or thighs for 99 cents a pound.

Additionally at Food Lion, you will be able to pick up fresh preaches at 99 cents per pound. Food City has ground chuck at $2.99 per pound, along with 10-pound bags of potatoes for $2.99. Kroger is continuing with its mega sale of buy five and save five. With these sales this week, it is a good time to place a few extra packages aside for special weekend parties.

While walking through grocery and drug stores recently, I noticed there are several clearance sales that have coupons to match up.

Additionally, I am always looking for meat packages on clearance. This week I ran across ground pork on sale and had it mixed in with ground beef. This provided several meatloafs to place in the freeze for meals later.

The stores are having sales preparing for families to gear up for outdoor grilling, which will include all of the condiments and special spices and seasoning.

Remember, as you save money with couponing, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money saving plan. This is the 23rd week of the year. Place $23 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $276 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
