Meal planning is not my favorite thing to do.

There, I said it.  haha!

After years of trying to set a weekly meal plan…then a monthly meal plan…I finally settled on a good compromise.

Nowadays I plan for 2 weeks at a time.  It’s great, because I don’t have to do it every stinking week.

But I also don’t have to manage the sometimes overwhelming task of an entire month at a time, either.

The plan looks like this: meals that fit our busy lives, that are frugal, and that are simple.

I don’t feel like I need to reinvent the wheel each week, or scour Pinterest for 14 brand new meals we’ve never tried before.

So we use a lot of our tried and true favorites over and over.

Your 2 Week February Meal Plan Is Done!

2 Week Meal Plan for Late February- Frugal ideas for all meals and snacks, plus recipes!

Simple and easy is a non-negotiable for me.

So these days, instead of clipping (and clicking) coupons or trying to keep up with rebates, I just use the free Fetch Rewards app.

It’s the easiest thing ever! When I jump in the car after leaving the store, I just snap a pic of my receipt and boom, I get free points.

(I turn those points into Amazon gift cards, but there are lots of other choices you can redeem your points for!)

Use my referral link along with code PEWR4 to get the Fetch app, and you’ll get 2,000 points right off the bat!


(Here’s a list of our favorite easy make ahead breakfast ideas.)


  • sandwiches  (PB&J, Nutella, PB&honey, lunchmeat, apple butter)
  • quesadillas
  • leftovers (This is what most of us usually choose, but I homeschool 3 kids and that helps.)
  • hot dogs (They can’t all be winners…)
  • soup
  • eggs
  • French toast

Supper  (with sides of potatoes, rice, noodles, and fresh cut veggies)

If you need meatless meal suggestions for Lent (or just because!), check out this post.  If you can’t convince the family to go meatless, I can help you with that, too!

Our snacks and extras include:

Those are the meals we love and the new ones we can’t wait to try this week!
