Marked down meat - will feed us for 3 weeks! <$60

Found a supermarket in our local area. It appears they mark most things down on Tuesdays after school hours. Found a bag of tomatos for $1ea so I picked up a few. I also got milk for 30% off.
I decided to take a look at the meat as I have been browsing online all day at the prices..

Total spent was $59.97 and that will feed our family for 3 weeks. Menu Follows...

mince 8.53 for 2kg

pork chops 2.61 for 2 pieces

scotch 7.28 - was half price for 2 pieces

rissole 1.36 - was marked down a few times before I purchased it

scotch 14.75 - was $10 off with 4 pieces

franks 4.25 - usual price

chicken 11.48 - usual price of about $9.90 kg

lamb 5.26 - chops were marked 30% off I think

ch dsticks 4.45 - normal price

TOTAL $59.97

I have made a 3 week dinner menu with all of this... just add veges and mash.. Can't wait to start our vege garden, then we'll save even more!
