Hi Busy Moms! I am excited and ready to jump start my new Busy Mom Meal Plan subscription off with a bang! Organization and meal planning are key to sharing some wonderful meal times with your family. I’m here to help you all on the journey to continually save time and money.
Due to unforeseen events, we had to revamp the way we shop and live. I absolutely love learning and trying new ways to save and see how my family saves money. I am a huge advocate for meal planning and now found it’s easy for us to do once a month shopping trip. It truly saves us so much! And you can learn too! I now frugally shop only once a month to keep our staples in stock and ready to use. We will of course continue to shop at our favorite farmer’s market at Denio’s in Roseville weekly, which is AMAZING! and will soon rely on our garden to supply us with a variety of fresh veggies. I will be blogging about that soon. Promise.
We usually go to the farmer’s market on Saturday mornings and then I sit down on Sunday morning and I quickly come up with a meal plan based around the fresh produce from the market and those items we have in our pantry. I then make a list and shop for whatever else we need to round out our menu. I usually find that we don’t need to spend much, since I stock my staples at the beginning of the month and have lots of ready made meal kits handy. I’ve also try as much as possible to price match at Walmart, Winco and use coupons, which is something we’ll discuss in another post as well.
I will be sharing new meal plans every week with my Busy Mom Meal Plan subscribers. They will consist of seven meal ideas, with a new recipe day twice a month, recipes and a printable shopping list. Plus, you’ll have a night to use leftovers. Being organized is KEY to having a meal plan to help save you money. I just want to make it a little easier for busy moms and of course me too. Every meal plan I share with you is one that my own family has tried and loved. I will also show you what I bought each week and price matched. If you are new to meal planning, start HERE. I have some great frugal tips for just starting out in the kitchen too!
So now whether you are a monthly shopper or a weekly shopper, you will be able to have planned meals, to keep your family on budget. I will also be sharing frugal thrifty shopping/cooking tips and tricks throughout each month’s meal plan.
Let’s get cooking!
