$4-A-Day Challenge: Melissa

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:

  • Oatmeal, $0.20
  • 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!

Melissa takes the challenge!
