Monday Meal Plan~ Week 18

I have been working to try to journal our meals. I forget often, and then try to remember on Sundays when I have time to blog. Its been tricky! 


Things to Remember

I try to post as much info as time allows, but if you have a specific question, please ask.. I will be happy to answer. Don't forget to choose the option to receive notifications to posts when you comment.. otherwise you may never know I answered! :)

I try to do bulk shopping once a month a fill in weekly as needed, although lately we have been doing more weekly shopping. We do a pantry build, so we tend to buy large quantities of basic food items. This is not just because we have a large family, although it helps, but this method also works great for smaller families and even single people. I like to shop sale/clearance items. I rarely use coupons. I will also include here random non-food grocery items, as I do include that in our budget. We shop for ingredients, not meals. This saves money and we eat a bit better I think.




Menu
Breakfast: oatmeal x4, pancakes, yogurt ( with granola)  &  banana x2
Lunch: PBJ x3, Hummus, leftovers, bologna & cheese sandwiches x2
Dinner: Potato Soup, BLT's, spaghetti,
