The Meal Planner

While I always stick to my grocery list and rarely ever stray from it (eliminates impulse buying), I will buy meat if it is on sale even if it's not on my list. Meat is the most expensive item each week, and if I can save money and buy a lot when it's cheap, later in the month I won't have to buy any meat. This week's meal plan I was trying to save us MONEY. Our budget for groceries was really tight, so I used all meats that we already had in our freezer. This eliminated a lot of expense because I just had to buy produce and dry goods.

I need to make a LOT of food for cheap and easy this day (I have someone else's family as well as ours to feed).

I'm working, so I want to be able to throw everything in the crock pot the night before and turn this on in the morning.


Day 3: Linguine Alfredo with Smoked Salmon
I had a craving for pasta and have a large package of smoked salmon in the freezer. I will use half of that and throw it into a homemade Alfredo Sauce (which I'm attempting for the first time ;)

I have a TON of fish in my freezer, so I'm excited to try this and do something new. Whenever we have fish, it's same old - same old.

Day 5: Spicy Sausage Linguine with Ceasar Salad
This pasta dish uses two kinds of sausage and has a fantastic spicy kick.

  1. Although I keep my shopping list and rarely deviated from to avoid impulse buying, I would buy the meat, if it is sold, even if it is not on my list. Meat is the most expensive project, every week, if I can save money, buy a lot of time, it's cheap, later this month, I will not buy any meat. This week's meal plan, I want to save our money.

    Hi there, thank you for your wonderful meal plans! I'd like to start from square one with your first meal plan and would like to know where I can click to get the grocery list. I noticed your most current plan has a link but I don't see one here. Thanks for your help!

    Hi Alessandra Lanza! I'm glad you like the meal plans. My blog evolved over the years and I didn't start providing printable meal plans with grocery lists until week 36 I think it was. Anyhow if you click on the side link that says "Listing of All Meal Plans" it will show you the links with grocery lists.
