Grocery Geek Presents: Markdowns for Lunches

[4] As I’ve mentioned before, one of my favorite things to do is stroll the aisles of the grocery store or even Target and look for great items on clearance [5]. My husband did not realize this about me when he agreed to go to Target with me last weekend.

We both lost track of time — and missed the Chargers kickoff. Oh yes, yes, we did.

The conversation on the way home was comical.

Hubs (confounded): Why did that take us so long? It was just a trip to Target. You get in and you get out.

Me (laughing): Honey, didn’t you know that Target was like therapy for me?

Obviously, not.

Last week it was swim trunks for $2.48 [6] at Target. This week’s great deals were markdowns from Ralphs that go great in our new and improved lunches [7].


I found sandwich rolls, apple slices, and baby carrots marked down at my local store. And now that we’re packing lunches though we’re home at mealtime [9], having these easy to throw together food items was super helpful. I say was because we go through food pretty fast around here. All this was consumed before the sell-by date, thank you very much.

I’m thankful that I’m finding ways to make our sack lunches both healthier [10] and more economical, too.
