Time to Start Using A Weekly Meal Plan

How has your week been going? Mine has been super busy and even though we had a holiday earlier this week, it sure does not feel like it. I am ready for a weekend now! You may remember that I mentioned how meal planning has really helped us save money (and reduce waste)?Well, today we are taking it one step further with a weekly meal plan from me and a few of my friends.

Beginning today, we will be sharing a new keeping it easy meal plan to help you with your menu planning for the next week. It will be a chance to see some new recipes and get ideas for dinner for your family.

Honestly, by planning ahead and matching ingredients with those on sale this time of year, I think you will notice that you will be saving money like I did. Putting ingredients on double duty and reducing waste really helps. Speaking of saving money, I will be sharing my simple budgeting tips with you next week so stay tuned.

In the meantime, here are the recipes from the first meal plan in this series. Be sure to grab your free meal planning printables and use them to plan your meals. There are a few designs to choose from to match your style.
