Thanks to Carol over at CTONABUDGET I looked at my Stop & Shop flyer to see that they had two deals that we could utilize.
With a $25 purchase I could get 2 pounds of shrimp for 5.88 a pound. I could also get 80% ground beef for 2.99 a pound. Since we have no ground beef in the house I thought this would be something that I should look into.
While looking through the ad I also realized they had the Perdue chicken cutlets that I had purchased at ShopRite last month for the same price of 5.99. I still had one more two dollar coupon. I also knew that we needed swiffer wet jet pads for the studio, so I figured that would help bring me to the $25 mark. It did!
For the meat and seafood pictured I paid $25.59. There is almost 7 pounds of protein. I can make at least two meals out of the shrimp and three of the ground beef. The chicken another meal. All would have leftovers! (or so I hope) Six different entrées for the price of approximately $1.42 per protein serving (if no leftovers). I am very happy with those numbers.
