I thought I’d be within my $700 budget this month. Until I found chicken tenders for $1.49 a pound at Albertson’s and boneless breasts for $1.25 at Wal-Mart. $50 and nearly 40 pounds of chicken later I have enough chicken for 3 months. Yeah, I’m $50 over budget for January, but every chicken meal for the next 3 months is going to cost us less money thanks to stocking up during a great sale.
