Kraft Foods and Sam’s Club Lunchtime for about $1
Kraft Foods and Sam’s Club Lunchtime for about $1. Review. As you learned from us earlier this week Sam’s Club and Kraft Foods are making things simple for Moms this summer! They are providing us 8 quick and frugal lunch menus in their Lunchtime for about $1 booklet. Which is available at your local Sam’s Club in the photo department or download it for free. We were very excited to shop the grocery list provided in the booklet and prepare one of the recipes for our children.
It was hard to select only one recipe however we chose the Turkey Sandwich Combo. Shopping was so easy as we simply followed the shopping list provided in the front of the booklet. It was amazing to be able to go Sam’s Club with no written list! All we needed was the booklet!
The price for this meal was $1.09 per person and it only took 5 minutes to prepare. The menu included: Turkey Sandwich, Carrot Sticks, Red Seedless Grapes, 1 Chips AHOY! Chocolate Chip Cookie and Country Time Lemonade. We were thrilled with both the price and time it took to prepare. With 3 busy boys between us we don’t have a lot of extra time to prepare lunch.
Purchasing in bulk at Sam’s Club is right up a stockpiler’s alley. We do want to share our 2 Cents Savings Tip after we had the experience of shopping from the list and making one of the recipes in the Lunchtime for about $1 booklet. Our 2 Cents Saving Tip is to think outside of the box when it comes to using your leftover ingredients. Freeze ingredients to stretch their expiration date when possible. For fresh ingredients like grapes, carrots, lettuce and tomatoes you can include those in your weekly menu plan to stretch your grocery budget.
Other suggestions are to consider bagging carrots into small portions so that you children can have a healthy snack on the go. Make a grape salad for a unique side dish that incorporates fruit or freeze grapes for a delicious and cool treat on hot summer days. The recipes would also make great meals for larger groups of children including playgroups, birthday parties or for sports teams.
If you would like to pick up a booklet or shop from the Lunchtime for about $1 booklet you can find a Sam’s Club location near you. You do not have to be a Sam’s Club member to shop as you can download a one-day pass to your local Sam’s Club however there is a 10% service charge will apply to purchases made with this one-day pass.
You will also have the opportunity to win a free year-long membership and a gift certificate for $50 to Sam’s Club as an exclusive offer to our readers! Be on the lookout for our upcoming Kraft Foods and Sam’s Club giveaway later this week!

I have got to say you have some of the cutest kids ever and they are so willing to be on camera. Luv it!!!! Your posts just put a smile on my face when I see your cuties…gotta love our kiddos 🙂
Thanks so much 🙂
Some really great recipes..I love the Hawaiian BBQ ham sandwich…yumm!
Wow recipes look thrilling cheap n easy.I like the ham.so simple to make
Lunch looked yummy…..and healthy! Anxious to download the book for more ideas!!
Knowing how big the items are at Sam’s Club I like that you gave suggestions about what to do with the leftover ingredients.
Can’t wait to download the booklet! I love FAST and HEALTHY lunch options! 🙂
Yes, the $1.09 a serving is awesome, but my favorite part is that it took 5 minutes to prepare!
Like you mentioned, we too freeze grapes for a cool treat on the go….A tip from me: Carrots do NOT freeze well. Yes, I learned the hard way. Once you freeze the bagged carrots they become squishy when thawed and are really only good for cooking. At least not a total waste 🙂
I can’t get my 5 year old to like sandwiches, no matter what I do. But these sure look good!
i like your 2 cents savings tip, because i know sometimes when i buy in bulk..i lose alot of my savings to the trash..because i don’t think of other recipes that use the same ingredients..thanks
I am going to have to download this booklet. Thanks!
I agree, very cute kids! The sandwich looks as big as your son’s head! 🙂

Your little boy makes me laugh!!! His smile is so bright!!! I love it!! And how could you not vote for him in the pictures for the Rozoni…I seen him standing out before I even knew where your picture was!! LOL…Now I’m getting hungry…I’d pick the same sandwich yall picked!
We are always looking for quick (and affordable) lunches for summertime…we have a busy summer ahead of us, the quicker the prep the better for us all!!
I would make the turkey chipotle quesadilla. However I’d definitely add some veggies to them. Perhaps some pepper and onion strips!
I am not a sam’s member.
The kids looked like they really enjoyed the great food!
…and thanks for the 1-day pass! 🙂
I love anything that makes shopping easier!
