Here is a sample meal plan and shopping list showing how to feed a family of 4 for just $150 per month without using coupons and without shopping at Aldi, since there is no Aldi near me. I used actual store prices from current store ads when preparing this plan.

Feed A Family Of 4 For $150 A Month Without Aldi Or Coupons!

Here is a meal plan for 4 people. These are the basic items and I would say it is a good plan for 2 adults and 2 kids, not teens. If you want more food for teens, then add several more batches of homemade oatmeal muffins and a few more chicken thighs for meat servings.

I created this meal plan using my local ads, without coupons and without having Aldi available. (I would definitely shop Aldi if it were available.) I used all of the basic grocery savings principles and the recipes are from our Dining On A Dime Cookbook.

I shopped at my local Kroger store (King Soopers), Walmart, Sprouts and Lucky’s Market.

This meal plan assumes that you already have some things on hand like spices, condiments and basic baking ingredients like flour, sugar and baking powder. You will note that my shopping list is under $150. That because I am assuming you will need to fill in with a few things as the month goes, so this allows for you to get the extra items you need.

If you don’t have a freezer to freeze some things, like the chicken or bread, just buy those items on the week that you need them.
