  • This is based off of a family of 4-5- so you will need to adjust it accordingly for a bigger or smaller family.
  • All items are on sale or part of the lower Meijer price. If you don’t have the pantry items, then you will need to add those into your final price. (sale dates )

Meat sales are great this week, and it is easy to save money by shopping the sales to feed your family right.  Check out these great meals that will help save you some money and time.
