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 ideas are taken directly from the Brookshire's circulars.  If you want to check out potential menus from other stores try


This week is all about the game day food:

Use:  DiGiorno Pizza x 2, Fresh Express Salad

Nachos, Guacamole, & Chili
Use:  Rico Chips, Rico Nacho Cheese Sauce, Hormel Chili, Wholly Guacamole

Taquitos & Refried Beans
Use:  Jose Ole Taquitos, Old El Paso Refried Beans x 2
