This meal plan free printable is a fun way to plan your meals to save money!
It is great for starting a new meal planning habit to save your family money and save your sanity so you don’t have to think about what you are going to make for dinner each night!
While planning every meal is a great way to save time during the week and money, there are going to be some situations where it doesn’t go quite as you planned out. That is okay, Mama! Make sure you leave some room for flexibility in your meals and meal planning. I always have a frozen pizza stashed away for my difficult days!
Left over days are great!
Always try to think about leftovers or using certain ingredients in your meal planning that can be used for multiple meals. Wednesday’s are great left over days! I also like to buy big packs of meat use what I need then freeze what I don’t. I usually get a better price that way! If you know you want to make chicken and dumplings and are going to buy a pack of chicken breasts, buy more than you need and freeze them. This lets you have enough chicken for that meal, but also for chicken soup, salads, sandwiches, or other dinner ideas. You are going to save money and time by having the extra chicken on hand.
