Price Breakdown: Spaghetti, $3.69 or less
We had spaghetti tonight. I knew it was a frugal meal, but I was curious about the bottom line. Let's break it down.
1 lb ground turkey, $1.69, Aldi (in the frozen section)
26 oz can Hunt's spaghetti sauce, $1.00, Walmart or Dollar Tree
12 oz whole wheat spaghetti, about $1.00 (see note below)
Total: $3.69 or less! $.62 per serving
Note: Pasta is an item that often goes on sale and can be a good coupon deal. I bought the spaghetti we had tonight for $.39, making our meal $3.08 or $.51 per serving.
This is weird, but only two of the Picky Kids Quad will eat spaghetti. Don't ask; I don't know.
