This is what $40 got me at Food Lion. It enough food for my and my hubby for 1 week.
I eat leftovers and the fresh food for my breakfast and lunch.
Re the chicken... We eat what we want and the rest is used to make chicken stock or chicken soup depending on how much is left. I will buy a whole chicken and cut it in pieces myself.. so 3 chickens yield 3 meals of 1 breast each, 2 meals of 2 thighs each (4 for hubby), and one meal of baked "wings"...
If your trying to save money on your grocery bill then try a local Latino or Asian dominate store. My husband and I found a Spanish grocery store that has great prices on fish, chicken, and fresh turkey. The store even had marinated items for under $2 a pound and they were good quality products.
Also check out local fish markets if you live near the coastline. You may have to get up early in the morning or buy some items in bulk but the savings are amazing.
You'll be able to cut your grocery bill in half.
