Are you enjoying your summer vacation with the family so far? We’ve hit some record high scorching days here in the sierra foothills this past 4th of July week and are doing our best to keep cool. We had our first family camping trip of the year, and were excited to spend a few days away relaxing. Packing and pre-planning for our camping trip meals with some ready made mixes, burritos, chicken burgers (one of the easiest recipes featured in this month’s meal plan), hot dogs, hamburgers made our camping trip even more enjoyable. And no one went hungry.
I even had time to plan out the meals and go monthly grocery shopping for July. Wahoo!!!
This month, we’re keeping organized and putting more effort into frugal living and my hope is to help you all on this journey with me to continually save time in the kitchen, have a weekly meal plan and continue to create those family mealtime memories.
I’ve broken down the monthly meal plan this month for subscribers into 5 weeks getting us all through the end of July as we move into August. I will be posting the month’s menu, shopping list and each week on Saturday mornings you’ll get to review the upcoming week’s recipes to prepare ahead of time. I’ll also be sharing frugal tips and tricks for shopping and cooking all throughout this month’s meal plan. So whether you’re a monthly shopper or still weekly shopping, you’ll be ready to have those planned meals, to keep your family saving and on budget. As a special feature to the new meal plans, I’ve also included a list broken down each week of emergency foods to build up your emergency food supply. You never know when you might need it.
Be sure to check out my post on How We’re Cutting Our Grocery Bill for some frugal tips on your next shopping trip. Are you ready for the meal plan?
