Echo, thank you for inquiring for a bit of help in your area! Lately we’ve been watching prices skyrocket in the midwest and the concerns of how the drought is going to affect the grocery budget have been increasing as well; To help you get started reducing your expenses, we’ve sent details to you on how to download our ebook, “The 2012 Family Guide to Groceries under $250 a month” for free!

Luckily, there is an Aldi store located within a reasonable distance from you.

Unfortunately Walmart does not provide a weekly grocery flyer online. This is partly due to their claim of no sales (yet they routinely “rollback” prices for very short periods of time.); which is why we haven’t bothered to provide any “deals” from that particular store.

There is a Sam’s club located just down the street from Aldi. Generally speaking, sam’s often has the best deals on pork and chicken.

Various Snacks & Dessert Items:
