Bargain Meal of the Week

This recipe for today seems so simple that I may just have time to sit down for a minute! I can't wait to try it because this girl loves chicken and noodles! I plan to freeze half the recipe (my family can't eat it all) and the costs are cut in half! Happy Eating!!!

So I've recently moved very close to a Meijers and was wondering about thouse, 10 for 10 ads, do I really have to buy ten of the item, or will just one item ring up for a dollar?

Great question!! You don't have to buy 10 to get the discount! ( I am not sure why they word it that way... unless they want you to know you have a limit of 10? )

A lot of the time the 10 for 10 includes the 11th one free, like it did last week.

Thanks for sharing the weblinks to see more Meijer deals. I will certainly try to make that recipe my own.
