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.
The house we are currently renting (read about our journey to buying our first house here) has no AC, which leaves the inside temp usually hovering around 90 degrees.
Hence, all the grilling recipes I have rounded up for you this month!
Meal planning can become such a chore sometimes! That is the main reason I went from planning one week at a time, to two weeks at once, then to one month at a time. It’s easier for me and saves us even more money because I can buy more in bulk.
To make it even easier for YOU, I have a FREE meal planning printable toolkit for you. Then to make it easier again for you, scroll down this page to find your free printable complete meal plan with every recipe our family will be eating this month.
Make sure that you are stacking the savings!
After you have your grocery list in order. Make sure that you are shopping the sales at your local stores and be sure to get as many rebates as possible!
My very favorite and easiest way to get money back from grocery shopping is by using Ibotta!
It is SO SIMPLE! Get the app, look to see which rebates are available at the specific store you plan to shop at, purchase qualifying products, upload your receipt right into the app, and the cash will be credited to your account!
If you are new to using Ibotta, make sure to use my link to sign up or use the code: qybjrj and you will get $10 instantly after you claim your first rebate on top of all the other cash back you will be getting!
