The grand total for 10 meals this week without using coupons this week is $44.92! 
That's $4.49 per meal or $1.12 per person per meal. 
However, if you are using coupons, the total is 40.44 or $4.04 per meal or $1.01 per person per meal.


  1. Another Idea: Sausage fajitas

    brown diced Eckrich Sausage in skillet with onion

    serve on warm tortillas, with sour cream, grated cheese and salsa

  2. Thanks for that! Yet another frugal meal using the ad this week - $7.28 without coupons.
    While we are on the subject of tortillas, why not cheese quesadillas for supper?
    Anybody want to chime in with more ideas?
