So between Sentry, PicknSave, Kwik Trip and Jones, I spent $81.50 so far.
I still have money left to stop at Aldi's tomorrow ( I am going to visit my mom and will stop at the one by her home). I have over $100 left for the 3 weeks and I have most of my menu planned out. I will possibly be able to add a 4th week and get to the end of September. I am going to trade my mom 12 ears of corn for some tomatoes I picked, So that will be another meal. And I am making 15 pints of salsa this afternooon, which I could then share!

Here is my Menu Plan for the next 3 weeks.( 3 weeks multipled by 7 days is 21 meals, except for lunches and some breakfasts my kids get through school), Not completed, due to my run to Aldi's Tomorrow.

Oatmeal ( 3 days, once a week)
Cereal ( 6 days, twice a week)
Yogard with Fruit ( 3 days, once a week)
Waffles ( 3 days, once a week)
Pancakes ( 3 days, once a week)
Eggs  with Canadian Bacon or sausage (3 days, once a week)
We have plenty of pancake mix, syrup, oatmeal and canned fruit in stockpile). When I make a batch of Waffles or pancakes, I use the whole box and make a big batch. Then I freeze them and heat them up in the microwave for a quick breakfast. Also, that allows me to only have to cook waffles one big batch at a time vs several days in a month.

( Kids have school 5 days a week, so we will need only weekend lunches for them) ( for my job, I pack a lunch, typically the yogarts, some crackers or cereal and a piece of fruit)
Hot Dogs, 2 days
Mac and Cheese, 2 days
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, 2 days

Mom's Lunch:
Yogarts ( I have enough for all 3 weeks due to stockpile and what I bought these last shopping trips)

Dad's Lunch
Ham Sandwiches, cloe slaw
Left overs
Ramen Noodles

Ham Steaks with veggies ( 3 dinners)
Pulled Pork Sandwiches, with side dish ( applesauce, salsa or veggies) ( 2 dinners)
Chicken breast, with side dish ( 3 dinners, have what I bought today plus a 3 pound bag in stockpile)
Frozen Pizza (2 dinners)
Sloppy  Joes with chips, ( need to buy ground turkey tomorrow at Aldi's) ( 2 dinners)
Tacos, ( 1 dinner)
Scolloped Potoes and Ham ( 2 dinners)
Beef Stew with Rice ( beef stew is in Stockpile) (1 dinner)
Spaghetti ( 3 dinners, once a week!)
