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.

It's another great week for inexpensive meals.

This week you could make:


  1. Potato Soup & Crescent Rolls
  2. Tuna & Broccoli Alfredo w/Salad
  3. Chicken Fried Rice
