Okay, full honesty right here: I’ve gotten right into a rut relating to meal planning. I really feel like I’ve simply not been impressed or motivated with cooking concepts. And we’ve been having quite a lot of the identical issues time and again.
So once I met up with Laurie from Passionate Penny Pincher per week in the past and he or she gave me a 5-Ingredient Meal Plan Box, I made a decision I’d simply strive it for per week. I did a grocery pick-up order final week for the substances and we ended up loving the recipes a lot that we’re utilizing Week 2 this week.
I really like that the recipes are all deliberate for you, the grocery checklist is made for you, and the recipes that we tried have been so yummy! In actual fact, each one liked them — which hardly ever occurs with new recipes! And the entire household was excited for me to strive it once more for a second week!
The substances for the recipes are slightly greater than I might sometimes spend (as a result of I often base our menus upon what I’ve readily available and what’s on sale) however I’m having enjoyable getting inventive to see if I can work them into our grocery finances.
By the way in which, in full transparency, the meal plan box is expensive and I in all probability would have by no means bought it had Laurie not given me one. That stated, I see the worth in them now that I’ve used one for per week! (Laurie stated you would use code MONEYSAVINGMOM to save 15% off should you have been pondering of probably buying it.)
Right here’s all the pieces I purchased at Kroger! My complete was $104.
I used to be tremendous enthusiastic about that deal on eggs!
There was additionally a terrific deal on pineapple — however there have been precisely two left, so I simply purchased one! 🙂
