Trying to meal plan during the holidays can be extra challenging. Especially when you are looking for quick and easy recipes on a budget. How do you know how many meals to plan for when there are so many unexpected parties and get togethers?
The last thing you want to do is plan meals and purchase groceries only to let them all go to waste because you ended up going to your friends house for a last minute Christmas game night.

When you are grocery shopping on a budget, navigating the grocery world can become redundant and boring. Mindlessly walking through the aisles, buying the same boring food that you did last time.
That’s why I personally LOVE seeing what other families put on their meal plans and what products they choose when they shop at places like Costco.
This month our goals in grocery shopping on a budget were to try our best to stay away from foods that were overly processed and stick with products that contained more natural ingredients. All while sticking to our monthly grocery shopping budget of $300.
When life gets busy, the last thing on your mind is what you’re cooking for dinner! 5pm very rudely sneaks up on us moms! Which is why in this month’s meal plan I have rounded up 19 quick and easy dinner recipes on a budget!
School is back in session! How do you feel about that? I’m the mom that feels completely torn, a mess of emotions!
Happy to be back to a schedule. Happy for a few less hours a day of the kids bugging each other. But man! I do miss those guys when they are away all day!
Dang! When it’s cookin’ outside there is no way I want to be cooking inside! Which is why in this month’s recipe roundup I am featuring as many easy grilling recipes as I can that can be cooked outside.
Meal planning is the #1 action we took that instantly took our monthly food spending from over $700 a month for only two people, to now under $400 each month for our family of five.
Every month I share with you exactly what our family is eating for the month on a $400 budget! Chances are these monthly meal plans on a budget are going to help you save thousands of dollars each year!
Take a look for yourself! I’m sharing with you exactly what our family will be eating this month in our monthly meal plan and also giving you the exact penny amount we spent on groceries for the entire month!
