Bargain Meal of the Week
For great meals for less you can purchase at your local store visit $5 Dinner’s new feature, Bargain Meal of the Week. Bloggers around the country create a bargain meal based on their local store sales.

If you shop at the commissary you probably know their prices change every two weeks. Not only do sales run on a two week basis, but many of their everyday low prices change as well. Each Monday I will be posting a bargain meal, created from current commissary deals.

Since I am supposed to be taking it easy, my bargain meal this week is super easy, and cheap! I found the recipe for this Commissary Bargain Meal of the Week on

Linguine with Clam Sauce

Barilla Linguine Pasta $0.99
