Yeah I have a job, yet still have a hard time getting everything I need and going to school. I’ve been trying to budget a lot
Usually my staples are things like 18 pack eggs Krogers 2.19 i think.
Ground round is cheap (or sometimes I use ground chuck, with all ground beef I rinse the hell out after cooking,sometimes sirloin is cheap as hell, so always look and /compare prices $$)
Red Potatoes are what like .79 cents a lb most places
Yeah and also a lot of places like krogers later in the day will discount certain meats sometimes that will expire soon. So trick is to just cook that shit right away or freeze some.
oatmeal=cheap as hell
orange juice/grape juice
veggies=some fruit/produce markets will discount 2-4 packs of some bruised/soft peppers, plus things like broccoli/ Cauliflower that were still good just an older lot sometimes are marked down.
buy the krogers brand pure olive oil for frying stuff and extra light tasting oil you can use later when needed for quick cals.
plus you also buy the cheap krogers brand kids cereal and use it for pwo mixed with some whey protein and water.
Maltodextrin for pre , during and pwo is cheap as hell usually if you buy huge tubs from Now Foods at vitaminn shoppee.
fish oil i buy when i can afford it (not right now though)
Edit:also I buy the big bags of whole almonds, baking needs section the straight raw almonds.
do it up I’m in Michigan so I know you have a Krogers/Meijers real close I bet
