    I am also single- and I used to live in Northern CA- where in CA are
    you? There are places called rainbow groc. outlet stores that sells
    over runs at a substantial discount. I know that there is 2 in
    Berkeley (huge) near spengers restaurant and there is one on Broadway
    in Oakland near 29th street ( near all the car dealerships) -it used
    to be a safeway.There is one in Santa Rosa/Ukiah area and I think
    that there is 1 in SF. You might try looking for that- last time i
    shopped there I bought small cans of tuna for 33 cents each. If you
    have friends in the area- you might consider a casserole swap- most
    things come too large for one- you are going to make 3 small
    casseroles a week- 1 for you and 2 to trade. It might keep you from
    being bored and eating out so much. Is the food out so much better or
    is it being the alone thing? I know I get dark and light Jennie o
    ground turkey meat for 69 cents a lb here in TN at Kroger- its over
    near the fish stix(frozen). This week I mixed 1 lb with a can of
    Rotel chilis with lime juice and cilantro and grilled them on my
    George foreman grill- with grilled onions and turkey bacon- cost of
    my better burger sandwich? About 50 cents a burger. I have a second
    roll for next week , and found a hot wings seasoning mix for 1.00 at
    Deals (dollar store)and i have enough seasoning for 2 more weeks - I
    don't see why it would not make hot wing burgers-it is turkey-cheaper
    than eating out at Buffalo wings which runs about 10.00. i don't use
    commercial french fries at home- I scrub a potato , leave skin on,
    spray cookie sheet with generic cooking oil spray, chop potato
    lengthwise into 8-10 pieces, spray oil on them , sprinkle with cajun
    seasoning (50cents)-less fat and cheaper-bake at 450 till brown and
    cooked through.

    Spices are quite often a big expense- Look for tones brand in small
    red and white boxes for 1.00 each unless you use a lot . Or try in
    your local ethnic market- spices are cheaper in Mexican and oriental
    markets. Oriental markets (chinatown) not only have meat, chicken ,
    fish, fruits and veggies cheaper but may introduce you to some new
    variety.
    If you are eating out not to be alone- why not organize a cook in for
    you and your friends-everyone make 1 recipe and share on , say a day
    off at your house? Just a thought.

    I went and spent $17.00 at Walmart and then about $37.00 at the Grocery store. So for about $60.00 I did my grocery Shopping for the week. I am excited. Granted I did not get tons of stuff. But it will get through the week.

    I am very excited.
    I also looked for powdered mild in Walmart and they did not have any. I did not go to the super center so I am assuming that is why. ALso the workers were NOT very nice or helpful. Uggggggg

    I have found powdered milk in every single grocery store that I go to. Walmart, Aldi, Food Lion, BiLo and Piggly Wiggly. It is usually in the baking isle, sometimes on the bottom shelf.
