I’m all about saving money any way I can at the grocery store, but there’s one way I won’t compromise. I won’t compromise on quality and healthy food no matter the savings. That’s why finding ways to stretch our grocery budget can be challenging.
When ACME asked me to try out their #MyMixx app and share it with readers I was eager to see if they could meet my high expectations. We are fortunate to have several grocery stores to choose from in our area, and I admit it had been awhile since I’d been to ACME. Fortunately, there is one very close to home and I had actually never been to that location, so I was eager to see what they offered and how much I could save.
What I found at our local ACME? High quality food, produce that’s fresh, lines that moved quickly, friendly staff, a good selection of organics and gluten-free items, and LOTS of savings.
To start our menu plan this week I downloaded the ACME app for iPhone. I used it to create a grocery list with my husband and kids for this week’s back to school menu. We clipped coupons, created our menu, and checked out the weekly ad to find savings on back to school lunches.
Back to School Dinner Menu:
With the kids heading back to school this week it’s a good time to plan out a hearty menu after a long day at school.
Monday: Hamburgers and hot dogs, cantaloupe, and salad.
Tuesday: Breakfast for dinner including our fall pancakes, sausage, bacon, and a HUGE fruit salad.
Friday: DIY Pizza-everyone will make their own pizzas! Using our pizza dough recipe and I’ll be using Schar’s gluten free pizza crusts for me.
Saturday: Clean out the fridge night.
Sunday: Roasted chicken, roasted potatoes, corn on the cob, salad, and dinner rolls.
