How To Shop SaveALot. Check the pantry before you go, to stock up on the low every-day price of many basics.

Also check their website for several months worth of $5.00 meals. Their Fuel Your Family program gives you hundreds of menus that feed 4 people for less than $5.00.

Meat and produce specials run from the 1st to the 14th of the month. This month you can stock up on bottom round roasts at $2.49 a pound, which is about a dollar per pound less than the usual Kroger sale price. You can also stock the freezer with boneless chicken breasts at $1.69 a pound. You'll enjoy the extremely low price for the rest of the month.

This week, you can get 5 pounds of potatoes free with $10.00 additional purchase.

I miss your posts. Hope you have more tips to share. I've been using your system and got my bill down to $45 from $65 a week. It's been a great help. Thanks.

Sorry to be missing in action.

I broke my arm and am just now getting out of the cast. Everything should be back in order starting Sunday.

Thanks for the good wishes.
