Bargain Meal of the Week

It's time for another week of Bargain Meals! Erin over at $5 Dinners (a great read!) is hosting a gathering of bloggers all over the internet, creating frugal meals straight from the sales circulars of their favorite stores. Check it out for even more inspiration. I contribute every Thursday for the current sales at Publix, which run from Wednesday to the following Tuesday. Keep in mind that you do not need to purchase two of a product to get the buy one get one price. Publix marks down their products to half price for the BOGO deals.

Current Deals:
Publix Eggs, .99 per dozen or Free with Kroger mail-home competitor coupon
Oscar Meyer bacon $3 or $2.50 with coupon
Mahatma Rice, .99 or free with coupons

This recipe should easily come in around $5.
