Grocery shopping on a budget feels restricting sometimes. But you can feed your family well using less money than you think. Here’s how.
Once, I was challenged to feed my family on “just” $5 per person per day. When I did the math, my mouth dropped. For a family of 7, that amounts to $245 per week.
Now, I try to spend $300 or less when I shop for groceries every 2 weeks. So for me, feeding my family at $5 per person per day wouldn’t be a challenge. Shoot, we could have steak on that budget!
December is a super busy time of year for most of us. So let me help you with that meal plan!
Here you’ll get menu planning tips for all of your breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks for two weeks! I try to stick with things that are in season and on sale this time of year.
I know it’s December, but you should probably still do a meal plan. Maybe more than any other time! After all, who wants to figure out what to eat in the midst of shopping and wrapping?
An easy meal plan will stop you from having pizza and Christmas cookies for every meal this month.
Let me help you get that plan pulled together. After all, we Moms need all the help we can get!
Do you want an apple cinnamon french toast casserole that isn’t too eggy and won’t make you wait until tomorrow? This recipe perfectly starts your day!
Apples bring us together. People have their favorite foods, sure. But there aren’t too many people that don’t love a good apple recipe.
What’s not to love? The scent of apples baking can take you right back to your favorite, most cozy memories.
This recipe is amazing, because it’s simple…but oh, so good! You’ll hate waiting while it bakes. But don’t worry. It’s worth the wait!
With the right recipes for make ahead cold lunches, you’ll save a ton of cash without using up too much of your time. These recipes are perfect!
You hand your debit card through the drive thru window and get that familiar twinge of guilt. Yeah, you know you shouldn’t be buying lunch every day.
Someone even tried to convince you to do the math and see how much money you’re spending on lunches every year. (Like you need even more guilt!)
It all sounds good, in theory. The problem is that getting lunch together every day is hard! You have to find the time to pack something. And frankly, you’re tired of the sandwich routine.
As someone who would “friend” the snooze button if it had a Facebook profile… I get it. My mornings are always rushed, and getting lunch together for the kids and Hubby is not something I have the time (or brain power) to do. But in our #yearofno, splurging on bought lunches isn’t on our approved list.
Inside: A few simple ingredients make these cream cheese and chicken taquitos the easiest recipe you’ll make all week! Snacks and lunches just got better!
Most Moms’ ears perk up when they hear the works quick, easy, and chicken. Who doesn’t want another simple (and affordable!) recipe to add to their collection??
That’s why I’m such a huge fan of this cream cheese and chicken taquito recipe. It’s as easy as making a sandwich would be. But I can make these ahead of time and put them in the fridge for lunches or snack time.
And, pssst, I’ve frozen these with success, too! I know “they” say cream cheese doesn’t freeze well, but we’ve had no problems with it.
