I get a kick out of going to the commissary sometimes. It seems like every single time I go, I inevitably run into the same people week after week and without fail, it always seems to be the same crew of retired Veterans and their wives. I love hearing their stories of the days when they served and especially love seeing their chests puff out in pride about how they served.
I love their meat prices. Seriously, I went in there a few days ago and chicken breasts were $1.39 a pound. I can't even get that at Publix on a day when they are on sale. The closet they get is $1.99 a pound and even then I refuse to buy them. Today the hubby and I grilled up some steaks we picked up there for less than $3 a pound and they were delicious paired alongside a heaping pile of onions and mushrooms sauteed in my cast iron skillet. We are eating like kings and I haven't even used a coupon in there yet. For those who know me on a daily basis, I am always looking for a deal and am not afraid to stock up on things if it is super inexpensive.
So, in an effort to save a little time and money, I decided that from now on I am using Publix for their BOGO (Buy One Get One) Deals and the commissary (with my coupons) for everything else. The only thing that stinks is that I wish they were open on Mondays like the rest of the freaking world, but once again, I digress.
What kinds of deals do you find at your Commissary?
