Menu Ideas From the Brookshire's Ad

A meal plan is a great way to save money and not waste food.

I want to show you that as long as you are intentional in your shopping and cooking, you will save money on your grocery bill regardless if you use coupons or not. Generally, the cost of the whole meal will be less than or equal to the tip you would leave at a restaurant.

These menu ideas are based on a family of 4 and taken directly from the Brookshire's circulars.

This week you could feed your family kids' favorites:

Chili Dogs & Mac n' Cheese (.69+1+1.25+2.99)(.69+1+1.25+1.99)
