Menu with what's on sale for the week of Apr. 7-Apr. 13

You may not want to drive to six stores this week. It's entirely up to you and I totally understand if you rebel and say "enough with the madness, I'm not going to do it this week." I just try to offer you some insight as to what's available and that you can feed your family healthy and interesting food for under $100/week. This week had some really good and cost effective combinations if you are willing to store hop. And if you're not willing to store hop, that's okay too, because you will still save $ if you shop and buy only what's on sale. That is the key. That and using coupons and never paying more than $2/lb. for meat. So go forth and conquer. Conquer the grocery store, that is.
