Every Sunday I take about 10-15 minutes to get a dinner menu written down for the week. I try to buy meats every other week. Last week I bought chicken breasts at Tops for Buy 1 Get 1. So we still have a package of chicken to use this week. Another way we save on meat costs is my husband hunts and we use venison in place of beef for many recipes. Shopping the sales for meats helps cut down costs. If you are a BJ’s member in a price comparison they actually had the cheapest price per pound.
My daughter is loving tacos so we are sticking with Taco Tuesdays. I think younger kids like to have a couple meals a week that are familiar. When it’s warmer out I’m inspired to try new things and use the grill as much as possible.
Need more tips on meal planning and budgeting for groceries? Head on over here.
