Weekly Meal Plan | September 25th–October 1st

Here’s your Weekly Meal Plan through next Wednesday.

Every week I will post 5-6 links to Dinner Recipes, and 2-3 Dessert Recipes, and perhaps a few other Random Recipes you can use that incorporate the weekly sales items.

Here are some of this week’s top deals:

  • Grands Biscuits are $.50 at Safeway
  • Canned Campbell’s Cooking Soups are cheap at Fry’s
  • Barilla Boxed Pasta is $.50 per box at Fry’s
  • The price match list holds cheap Squash, Shredded Cheese, Ground Beef, Chicken, Bell Peppers, Bananas, Carrots & more – most all of which you can price match at Walmart.

Using the best prices from ALL of the Valley Grocers, I tried to make the plan revolve around this one Weekly Price List. 

You can certain drive to various stores, but the bulk of the items can simply be as easy as making a trip to Walmart…. remember that not all Walmart stores may price match so keep that in mind.
