We're kicking off our $4-A-Day Challenge week with a personal account of weekly grocery shopping from Melissa Porter, VP of Marketing at Grocery Outlet.
I did my shopping today for the $4-A-Day Challenge. I found some great buys at Grocery Outlet that will make it possible for me to eat pretty well this week: 2.5 pounds of Foster Farms boneless skinless chicken breasts for $5.99. That's six or seven nice servings of high-quality protein. Another great buy was a big pack of Campari Tomatoes for only $1.50 and also a BIG pack of Romaine Lettuce also for only $1.50. So my meals this week will be:
- Polish sausage, $0.35
- Sauerkraut, $0.40
- Salad, $0.70
- Apple, $0.50
- Chicken Broccoli Stir Fry, $1.50
- Apple Cinnamon Snack Bar, $0.16
Total for the day = $3.81
I know I will want a pre-bedtime snack and the apple cinnamon snack bars were only 6 for $0.99. I hope they're pretty good, because if not, I'm stuck with them!
Wish me luck!
