This week we stopped by my favorite Target store, where I always find great markdowns on meat. Sure enough, I found $4 Target coupons on the ground beef, and there is a 5 percent off Target cartwheel discount on ground beef too, so I only paid $1.89 per lb.
We also found Target Halloween decor and costumes at 70 percent off, but the food products were still stalled at 30 percent off. We picked up a few things for the boys’ classrooms and some of their favorite cereals.
After discovering that ALDI’s salmon (and most of their other fish) come from China, we’ve stopped buying fish there. My husband frequently gets free fish from some friends of his who go fishing in the Florida Keys, but I’ve been researching and calculating the price of salmon at our local stores.
Today I finally gave in and bought the Simply Balanced brand wild caught Alaskan salmon at Target. With a 5 percent off Target Cartwheel discount and a $1/$5 Simply Balanced Target coupon, it came down to $12.29, which is not that bad for 1 lb 8 oz wild caught US salmon, and I would rather pay a little more to support sustainable US fishing than paying less for Chinese caught salmon.
Where do you buy your fish?
