Master Grocery List

A few months ago there was a "master" weekly (or maybe monthly) grocery list on this group that listed what items are on sale and which staples to stock up on when; using this plan, you can drastically reduce your grocery bill. Now, I cannot find the list on thriftyfun.com; anyone know where it is, or how to shopping this way? Thank you!

Set aside $5 a week to buy the specific items each week. You will have a kitty set aside that you put the $5 in and you can't touch it for any reason but to buy the food storage item for that week. Put in the remaining change back into the kitty. Some things in the beginning are going to be cheap and then later will be more expensive. In order to pay for the expensive stuff later you need to keep the leftover money in the kitty. Weeks 38 and 44 you will have "off" to replenish the kitty.

Week 1: 2 cans tuna fish, 2 boxes salt

Week 2: 5 boxes of Macaroni and Cheese, 4 cans tomato soup

Week 7: 1 100 lb container wheat

Week 8: 1 5 lb powdered milk

Week 9: 1 5 lb honey

Week 10: 4 cans tuna, 4 boxes macaroni and cheese

Week 38: Stash $5 in the kitty

Week 39: 1 100 lb wheat

Week 40: 1 10 lb powdered milk

Week 41: 3 10 lb sugar

Week 42: 2 cans tomato soup, 1 10 lb sugar

Week 43: 2 cans tomato soup, 2 cans mushroom soup

Week 44: Stash $5 in the kitty

Week 48: 4 cans mushroom soup, 1 10 lb powdered milk

Week 49: 7 cans of tomato soup

Week 50: 7 cans of mushroom soup

Week 51: 2 10 lbs sugar, 1 box salt

By the end of the 52 weeks, you should have:

700lbs of wheat,

240 lbs sugar,

40 lbs of powdered milk,

13 lbs of salt,

10 lbs of honey,

5 lbs of peanut butter,

45 cans of tomato soup,

32 cans mushroom soup,

15 cans tuna fish,

10 macaroni and cheese dinners,

500 aspirin, and

730 multiple vitamins

They suggest adding 6 lbs of dried yeast and 6 lbs of shortening and this should be enough to sustain 2 people for a year. For every 2 people you have in your family add $5 more and double or triple the amount of whatever you are buying that week.

I looked over your list, which sounded like a very good idea...but after taking a closer look, you have allocated .33 (1/3) pound of sugar per person per day and about a pound of flour per day. How do you use all these items should the occasion arise?
