Why is May such a crazy month?

It seems like everyone and his brother has a birthday going on.

Then there’s Mother’s Day, end of school festivals, field days, field trips, etc. etc. etc.

It’s enough to make your head spin.

And on top of all of that…everyone still needs to eat 3 meals.


That’s why easy meals this month are a must.  

For us, baseball season is especially crazy.  So we gotta have meals that are easy to throw together…and easy to eat on the go.

Crock Pot meals and sandwiches will continue to be favorites during this busy season!

2 Week Meal Plan for Early May. Get frugal ideas for all meals and snacks. Includes recipes!

Before I dig into my meal plan, I want to take a moment to say that I realize that meal planning takes time that some of you just don’t have.

I remember being a busy working Mom.  I just didn’t have the time it took to plan meals and also plan out a grocery trip.  

If that’s you these days, boy have I got a great solution for you!

Grab a $5 meal plan here.  It’ll save you money (especially if your “go to” meal plan involves ordering pizza or hitting the drive thru more often than you care to admit). 

Our 2 Week Meal Plan


  • cereal
  • oatmeal
  • toast
  • bagels
  • Pop Tarts (celebrating the end of the school year!)

Lunch (with sides of fresh fruit, cheese or yogurt, and one junk food)

  • sandwiches  (PB&J, Nutella, PB&honey, lunchmeat, apple butter)
  • cheese and crackers
  • English muffin pizzas
  • leftovers
  • muffins
  • salads
  • hard boiled eggs

Supper  (with sides of potatoes, pasta salad, chips and/or fresh cut veggies and probably this amazing beer bread)

Our snacks and extras include

  • fresh fruit
  • cookies
  • popcorn
  • graham crackers
  • candy
  • breakfast bars
  • blackberry cobbler (rather than birthday cake)

A bonus is that most of these recipes provided my family with lots of leftovers, so I was able to just serve leftovers on a couple of especially busy nights!
