1 pkg of 12 thick pork chops
1 pkg of raw chicken tenders approx. 24-30 tenders
Orange Juice - if not a better by somewhere else
Mac n cheese
Pasta


Regular Grocery Store
One family frozen meal - usually GV Lasagna
Brown sugar
Flour
Sugar
Cereals mostly cheerios
Pancake mix
Boxed jello
Yeast
Butter
Yogurt
Sour cream
Frozen veggies
Frozen fruit
Deli meat - usually bologna, ham and turkey

But seriously, I don't care what you buy. I wish people were as worried about the politicians money as they are about people on aid. It's all smoke and mirrors.

Flour and brown sugar are cheaper at Sam's.
