I heard a great idea tonight from a great coupon gal from Utah that I'd like to try and do here on Saving Made Simple. Wednesday is the start of the new add week for our major grocery stores and if you are just starting your stock pile and building up your pantry supply you might need some ideas for meals based off just what is on sale each week. So here on Wednesdays I am going to try and come up with 6breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas based just off ONE STORES sales add. This week I'm going to go off my pick of the week Smiths.
Scrambled Eggs x2
Mixed Fruit and Yogurt (Mangos, strawberries, watermelon)
Eggs Sunny Side Up
Malt O Meal Cereal
Red Barron Pizza
Hot Dogs mixed with Baked Beans
Lean Cuisine Entrees
Toasted Cheese Sandwiches
BBQ Shredded Chicken Sandwiches (3-5 chicken breast with 1 bottle sweet baby rays in crock pot for 3-6 hours)
Baked Potatoes w/ Butter, Sour Cream, Beans, Broccoli, and cheese
Grilled BBQ Chicken w/ corn on the cob
Marinated Grilled Chicken (Equal parts oil and soy sauce and 1 can pepsi)
Red Barron Pizza
Nabisco Snack Crackers
If you were feeding a family a four with this menu including snacks, condaments for the meals and JUST SHOPPING AT SMITHS the bill would be approximately $60-$70! If you did this every week for a month your grocery bill would be only at most $280!! Plus if you start building up a stock pile of things you could use on a regular basis you could cut this number back even more. See how coupons and sales can really help cut down your budget yet?
I'd love to come teach a free class to you, your friends and family and show you how to shop smart, EASILY use coupons, and save hundreds each month! Contact me and we'll find you the perfect spot in my calendar : )
