Lunch packs of Pirate’s Booty(!!!) and Back to Nature wheat crackers. My awesome friend text me on Monday telling me that there had been 6 & 12 packs of Pirate’s Booty at her local 99 Cents Only Store. The empty box skeletons were all that remained… but they had been there! I figured it must have been a special shipment at that store, but I was shocked to find the Pirate’s Booty at my store too! I hope you all find some as well! The lunch packs are always a great item to grab as they’re so useful, but not typically a frugal purchase.

Whole wheat spaghetti, tomato puree, and sausage. These all made for a really delicious and yummy meal tonight. The sausage was surprisingly quite good. A bigger hit than some of the $5.00 fancy-food combos I always try and never quite succeed in “wow-ing” the family with. We sauteed onion and garlic, mixed in the tomato puree, added some leftover heavy whipping cream, and salted/peppered/sugared. Poured that yumminess over the whole wheat pasta (which I don’t think anyone noticed it was whole wheat… score!) and served the sausage on the side. A FRUGAL and delicious meal! Sauteed mushrooms and zucchini spears (both I saw at my local store today) completed the meal.

Watermelon, peaches, and mandarin oranges – will be going in the medley of my apple and pear fruit salad with a touch of honey. I love a good fruit salad, don’t you?!?!

    I saw those Pirate’s Booty lunch packs at my store also but they were still in the boxes on the floor. I figured they were going to open the bags and put them in the 2 for $1 single serving chip section. I should have asked about them. I grabbed the same Back to Nature wheat crackers as you did and a 10 pack of Quaker big chewy chocolate chip granola bars. I also saw a 6 pack of full size Hershey’s milk chocolate bars but didn’t end up buying them.

    Oooh, some good scores this week! I hope I find the Pirate’s Booty lunch packs.

    Your dinner description sounds delicious. Suddenly I’m craving pasta!

    I didn’t go last week, but 2 and 3 weeks ago, they had the 1/2 oz. 12 packs and 1 oz 6 packs at my store as well. I went today, and they were all gone.
