Meal Planning

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.

Happy savings


Don’t forget to “fall back” this Sunday.  YAY!  We get an extra hour.

  1. I love planning out my meals in advance! If I don’t then I get shopping happy at the grocery store. And I can never shop when I’m hungry, always buy things I don’t need then!
