I don't know if every Meijer does this but the one on Carpenter Rd. on occasion has deli meat that they must have over sliced for the day sitting in half pound packets in the cases with the gourmet cheeses and meats. What's so great about this other than you don't have to wait to get it sliced? Well, it's usually much cheaper per pound than the stuff you would have sliced at the counter.
I've gotten turkey for $1.99 a pound and today I got ham for $2.99 a pound. Not only is it cheaper but it's definitely less processed than the packaged lunchmeat so we eat healthier at the same time. Two for one!

As summer starts to warm up, popsicles inevitably become a snack of choice for the kids. The ones you buy at the store are great but they can be costly, especially if you want to buy 100% fruit or juice ones. The cheaper pops are basically sugar water and dye. While giving my kids these types of popsicles is ok every once in a while, I prefer to try to keep the popsicles as healthy as I can.
