    OK I got it all in the freezer with few issues $150.00 total pretty good huh!! with junk food..

    1) Miss-figured the ground meat amount so needed 1 more 3lbs of ground meat to make tacos mixes.. $ 5.37 total no big deal

    2) Lots of 1 quart of each celery/green onions/green peppers left to freeze can use for extra meal of Crock pot Fried Rice

    3) Ran out of engery so left over ( piece of veggies tops celery onions) didn't make into a soup broth was too tired an since I have a small kitchen no more room...

    Sorry if you guys have been waiting for me I have been getting sick of trying to log in and get to my page. I ended up creating a Blog ...http://jayashiangel.blogspot.com/ any way the OAMC cooking went very well with a few bumps but I still have lots in the freezer and I think with better planning I have this OAMC stuff under control..

    I now only purchase meat on clearance I can pick up great deals ground turkey burgers Jenny-o brand usually here cost $5.99 for a package of 4 I can get in on clearance $1.50 a pack I will whatever they have on clearance.
    Here is a list of items I usually buy on clearance.

    Meats/Lunch Meats/Sausage (Jimmy Dean)
    Milk/Sour Cream or Cottage Cheese/ Shredded Cheese

    I make 2 pounds of beans at a time in the crock-pot for quick use in recipes w/ out spices when I make them I freeze them in 1 cup portions for quick use. For $1.00 or less a bag I will get 5 cups of more per ziplock baggie.
    A regular can of beans run about $.79.
