$88.79

As promised I went comparison shopping for the items I received through my order to Angel Food Ministries and here are the results:

2 lb Lasagna w/ Meat Sauce – $6.99
2 lb OnCor Mastaccioli w/ Meatballs – $2.50
3 lb Popcorn Chicken – $8.02
5 lb Breaded Frying Chicken – $14.08
2 lb (4) Hamburger Steaks – $4.98
12 oz (6) Sandwich Steaks – $3.79
7 oz Mac N Cheese – $0.45
8 oz Jiffy Buttermilk Biscuit mix – $0.83
10 oz Peanut Butter $1.48
15 oz Cut Pears – $1.25
8 oz Sliced Pineapple – $0.69
1 lb California Blend Vegetables – $2.43
1 lb Carrots – $1.38
24 oz French Fries (steak cut) – $1.50
10 pack Frozen Waffles – $1.05
8 pack Hot Dogs – $1.50
16 oz Bean Soup mix – $2.25
1 (30 oz)Pumpkin Pie – $6.19
———————————–All of the above for $61.36
32 oz (4) New York Strip Steaks – $13.98
1.5 lb (4) Pork Loin Chops – $6.18
1 lb (4) Italian Sausage – $2.98
16 oz (4) Chicken Breast (boneless/skinless) $ 4.29

———————————–Plus the above items for $27.43

Grand Total of $88.79

A savings difference of $45.79

All of the above prices are the lowest possible price I could find for each item.
Please know that if I would have just gone shopping, those are not the actual “brands” I would have purchased – I prefer Kraft brand Mac N Cheese, I would have purchased pre-made Pillsbury biscuits, I would have purchased 4 New York Strips which each weighed 12 ounces and therefore spent an additional $6.99 on just that item alone. The chicken breasts I would have purchased from the meat counter would have weiged in at around 2 pounds and cost twice as much as well.
