Lacy – Some Random Thoughts: Meal Planning Week 1.
Thanks to my friend Lacy who posted a blog today that really helped me. She talked about planning out her meals to help save money. Well, as you know, I’ve run into some problems with my bills and I needed ways to cut back and after reading her blog I felt this could really help me.
I love cooking. And baking is on the top of my list of enjoyable things to do, so I felt this could be fun. I will post each weeks menu and talk about how the week went. I am going shopping on Sunday so for the next few days I will cook what I have in the house. I wanted to wait until the Sunday paper came out for the coupons. hahahahaha
The rest of this weeks menu will be the following:
Wednesday: spaghetti with veg meat. I will make a loft of bread and kool aid. (it’s what I have in the house)
Thursday: veggie chicken and stuffing casserole
Friday: leftovers from Wednesday (no need to waste food, and we always have some left)
Saturday: sloppy joes
Sunday: (I will start a new week so I will post that in the next post)
I am planning to sit down on Sunday and look at all the sales and coupons. I will let you know how much I save, if any. 🙂 Also with the cold weather, I am going to use my Crock Pot more. I can freeze complete meals to cook. I saw a show where this was done and I will find the link to share here. I liked the time-saving method the person used. That will help me a lot.
If you have any ideas on how to save let me know, I could use all the help I can get.
Don’t forget to “fall back” this Sunday. YAY! We get an extra hour.
