Menu Plan Monday

We received a sweet gift of a Kroger Gift Card recently. When you are in the kind of financial situation that we are, every gift is carefully considered and we do our best to see what the best thing to do with this gift is. (Of course you always want to use a gift in the best way but I would say, because of our situation, we take an extra long time deciding.)

Anyway, there were a few good sales this week and we have decided not to get angel food this month so, we used this gift card to do some stock piling while there were some good prices. All that to say, we spent $93 this week. However only $46 came out of our bank account!

** One quick note on a good deal. Cheerios are buy one get one free at Food Lion this week. In your Sunday paper there should be a coupon for $1 off 2 boxes. So, I got 2 boxes of Cheerios for a final price of $2.38!! (Thanks mom and dad for letting me know) (Thanks Mrs Barbara and Mr Herb for your coupon)**

Here is the menu:

Monday - Out Cheap because of an appt to sale the truck
Tuesday - Chicken Strips, Mac-n-Cheese
Wednesday - Fish Sticks, Green beans
Thursday - Tuna Helper, Peas
Friday - Supper with Grandmom and Grandpop! YAYAY!
Saturday - Chicken, Potatoes
Sunday - Grilled Cheese, Ramen Noodles
