This is how I plan my meals every week--except that I plan my meals around the grocery store sale flyers. I see what meats and fresh veggies are on sale at the grocery store chains (the sale periods sre usually wed-tues) and plan my meals for each day. I pull up the recipes and write down each ingredient I need that I do not have stocked and shop all the stores in one day. Ingredients that are not on sale that I need I buy at Walmart because they are almost guaranteed the cheapest. Also, I take advantage of all meat sales and BOGOs (Buy one, get one free) by stocking up. We have a deep freezer, so for example, last week I purchased about 15 lbs. ofboneless skinless chicken breasts for 1.49/lb., which I then labeled and deep froze. Also, check sites like Coupon mom and Southern savers for coupon deals. Buy two copies of every Sunday paper, because on BOGOs you can use two coupons! For example, Scichk Quattro razors were BOGO at 6.99, and I used two $2 coupons, making two sets of razors only 2.99, or 1.50 each box. Southern Savers will tell you what's on sale at every grocery, and what dates the coupons came out, so you can stock up accordingly!
