Happy Monday Friends!
Can you believe it’s the last day of October! I am excited about November because we have the POTM Challenge, the Great Thanksgiving Challenge and the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge!!! Loving it 🙂
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and are getting pumped to start a new one! I am going to start posting a meal plan everyMonday! I have a lot of emails and comments about how to save money and eat healthy, so I thought a meal plan/grocery list for the week would be helpful. I don’t post what I eat for dinner every night so I thought this would be a fun alternative.
Every Sunday we sit down to plan out the weeks meals based on what our week looks like, what’s on sale, and what’s in season. This way hopefully we only have to shop once a week and we can eat more meals at home instead of out. We do have one night a week to go out for date night and that’s been wonderful!!!
Now that we are going to be doing the Great Thanksgiving Challenge we will be challenged with making our food stretch and will be taking way fewer trips to the grocery store.(well that’s the hope). I hope these meal plans help your family stay within a budget and give you some new ideas for dinners!
