Last month was ca-raaay-zy! I got off course with menu planning since I had so many projects going on (and yes totally blew our food budget), but today I took the time to plan out my weekly menu so I’m sharing it with you guys first (as opposed to when the week is complete) This way you all can take advantage of the coupons that I’m using and so forth.
Don’t forget to check what’s on sale in your favorite grocery store using ziplist (in the navigation bar). I hadn’t plan on shopping at Traders Joes this week, but after seeing on zip list that they had organic chicken breast and organic produce for sale I’ve decided to use them this week. I’m so excited that Spring is here!! There are so many fresh veggies and fruits on sale now!! I’m happy!! You’ll be seeing more fresh produce in my upcoming menus. I’m taking full advantage of what the season has to offer at such a low price!! Happy Menu Planning!!
*forgot to include the coupon for snickers, hash browns, and popcorn! You can print those out as well. I’m making Snicker popcorn this week for move night and a hashbown casserole for a family brunch on Sunday.
