Weekly Meal Plan

IMAG0394 300x179 Weekly Meal Plan

Chicken Burrito

A great way to save on groceries is to truly nail down what you’re going to eat each week.  Knowing before you go shopping helps you avoid wasted produce, leftovers that go uneaten, trips through fast food because you don’t have a meal, etc.  Plus  you can plan your meals around what’s on sale that week for even more savings.

I must admit that I’ve skipped this part of the savvy grocery shopping tips until recently, but the past few weeks I’ve been trying to plan out dinners at a minimum.

There aren’t fabulous deals this week at the grocery stores, but I am stocking up on pork from Safeway at $1.29/lb and fruit snacks.  Most of my groceries though were simply based off my weekly menu.

This week’s dinners include:

Saturday – Tilapia Picata with Rice and Zucchini Fries

Sunday – BBQ chicken legs with Orzo and Broccoli

Monday – Pork chops with Cilantro Carrots and Pasta Roni side

Tuesday – Grilled chicken on salad greens

Wednesday – Chicken Fajitas

Thursday – Leftovers or frozen pizza

Friday – My husband’s birthday (probably eat out)

Saturday – St. Patty’s Day parties (eat there)

    This is a great way to save money. I usually start by making a list of what I already have in the freezer, then add a few sale items from the store to put together my menu. Now if I could just be disciplined enough to do this every week…

    That’s kinda how I’m approaching it too Le’Ann. I have a good idea of the meats I have in the freezer and if there aren’t “stock up” meat prices during the week I’m planning my meals around my freezer stock.

    So far I’ve done it for 3 weeks and it’s really working well. Then I blew it by going to Costco today and loading up on snack foods :), but the kids need them for school snacks, apples, etc.

    Do you want to link up a weekly meal plan post and hold each other accountable?
