You are in for a treat this week 2 of Project:Food Budget! I have included a meal plan plus a grocery list!
After last weeks overspending I am happy to report that we did not take any extra trips to the store. That grocery shop lasted all week: 7 breakfasts, 7 lunches, 7 dinners, and 14 snacks! (Pat on back.)
Tip of the Week: For quick meal planning use online tools and Apps.
Do you use online meal planners? I like to experiment with different online meal planners. Who doesn’t want to simplify meal planning?
This week I stumbled across ZipList. I was searching for recipe widgets for this site. I updated a recipe using the ZipList Widget. Now you can add this recipe directly to your ZipList! Is that a valuable tool? Would you use it? Let me know what you think.
Wait! There is more. ZipList also has an App. You can meal plan and make a grocery list right in the palm of your hand. The week 2 menu AND grocery list is brought to you by ZipList. Oh, did I mention it is FREE? I wanted to plan a full week of meals using this new tool, so this week is a little heavier in dairy than we typically eat. I will likely substitute with Daiya cheese. Let’s see if this tool kept me on budget…
Woohoo! I did much better this week. This shop even includes toilet paper, rice and beans in bulk.
*I decided after I made the menu to exclude the lasagna. Too much dairy for us and dairy is expensive! I will replace it with a leftover night.
