I went into Smart & Final today with my menu for the week and I was able to get EVERYTHING in ONE trip! I got Bulk size of what I needed lots of and individual items too!! No extra trips to any stores this week and I only spent $100!!
Here is what I bought so that you could see most of my menu items and how you can eat well for LESS. Planning helps- plus with the time I saved not having to go to a box store and a separate grocery store means I have more time to cook this week!
Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts were $1.77lb!!!
I grabbed a pack of these, a large bag of Romaine lettuce and a small bag of First Street croutons. Chicken Caesar Salads one night for dinner to keep it light!
I just LOVE (and so does my family) the 10 for $10 Beef Patties! Burgers are a family fave and this takes the work out of a BBQ. I don’t eat the buns and neither does my husband, so I am glad we can buy a small pack of buns so there isn’t any waste.
The First Street Brand is a real gem- the patties, the buns ,the sliced cheese-all the best prices but tastes great
The sale on Steak $5.77 lb (LIMIT 2) but this will feed a few and I will grill the chicken I didn’t use for the salads. If you haven’t tried the First Street Garlic Bread- TRY IT!!!! It is SOOOOOOO good!!
I bought the 30 pack of eggs and the First Street Bacon for breakfasts this week. They also have the Carb Balance Mission tortillas- which are hard to find, but my Smart & Final is the one for sure place I can always find them!! I make up breakfast burritos with these for the week and we can grab them to go!!
SO these are my main meals for the week. I was also able to grab a few different things for snacks for the kids. I also grabbed a few extra flavors of Snow Cone Syrup for Snow Cones to Beat the Heat this weekend!!!
