Deals to Meals – Meal planning ideas for March 6

Deals-To-Meals-201-queenbee

Here is your March 6 installment of Deals to Meals – every week we go through the grocery ads, find the very best deals and suggest meals that you can plan with the deals. Meal planning is so important to saving money – you buy what’s on sale and build meals from your deals.

We organize the menu ideas based on specific stores – so you can either look for meals you like and shop that store, or if you’re pretty store-loyal you’ll have ideas that will make the most of the sales!

We’d love your suggestions, please leave a comment on this post with the types of meals you’re planning this week.

Just a few things to remember:

  • I’m not a chef, I’ll suggest basic meal concepts.
  • My basic meal plan doesn’t have much variety – so I’ll do my best to change things up, but I’ll be sticking a lot to the basics.
  • I won’t list every ingredient, just some of the best deals on the major ingredients and you can take it from there.
  • Fred Meyer and Target ads run from Sunday – Saturday, whereas other stores are Wednesday thru Tuesday. Just pay special attention to deals because some end Tuesday.
  • I’d love your help! Weigh in and share what you’re making this week based on the sales.

You can find complete deal match-ups for each store here:
