Our Weekly Menu No. 14

Whoa, the weekend is finally over, and the dust is starting to settle. We had a jam-packed couple of days between hockey games and exploring our great city. If you missed our previous post, yesterday we visited Tag Zone and had such a fantastic family fun day. We all had a blast and the day […]

Weekly Menu No. 12

Keeping our grocery budget to a minimum has been an easier task for me lately; though I have to admit that I’ve had a lot of help from my family. With the help of eMeals and $5 Dollar Meals, we’ve managed to make full complete meals that left our bank account happy and kept the […]

Meal Planning With eMeals

Meal planning is hard. It can be a tedious task that can take some time to get down. If you are a busy family on the go, you might consider hiring a maid to help out around the house, but did you know you can also outsource your family meal planning for as little as […]

Back to Basics Weekly Meal Plan No. 9

This week, we are skipping the fancy schmancy meals, and we are getting back to the basics. What exactly does this mean? Well, we’re ditching the meal recipes and only using items that we have on hand, stocked in the fridge, freezer or cupboard. Ha, why would we ever do this? I’m not crazy. I […]

Why I Meal Plan.. Weekly Menu No. 8

We are now heading into the 8th week of meal-planning, that’s 35 family dinners that we made at home. I can’t even tell you when this had ever happened before in our house. Previously, meal-planning never occurred to me; we were more about what was simple and what was convenient for our busy family. It […]

Weekly Meal Plan No. 7

Last week, we didn’t get to make all meals on the plan.  We were busier than we anticipated and with an out of town hockey game in the middle of the week, our menu plan shifted slightly. But we’re right back at it and more determined than ever to stay on track. You remember last […]

Budget-Friendly Family Meal Plan No. 6

This week, we are trying out a couple of new recipes that I got over from eMeals. I will be providing a more in-depth review of eMeals later this week. But since you already here, let me tell you about this fantastic website. eMeals offers many different meal plans on a monthly (or yearly) subscription. […]

Meal Plan Week No. 4 (Full Grocery List Included)

Alright, so we just finished the meal plan and grocery shopping for this week. We are trying to keep the recipes frugal and straightforward to get the best bang for our dollar. As this week is the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend, we planned for six meals only and the menu was planned with the intention of […]

How I Feed My Family of Five on $125.00 a Week

I assume that if you are reading this post, then there’s a good chance that you’ve been following my weekly frugal menu of meals for less than $100.00 a week. This week, we upped the budget to $125. This was to account for some small items that we’ve been purchasing here and there and to […]

Meal Plan No. 2 (With Printable Grocery List and Menu)

$100.00 weekly budget for groceries? Are you kidding? I get it; I thought this task would be impossible. But with a little work, price-matching, and meal-planning, it works. This plan is not fool-proof, and if not carefully examined and followed, you could run into a few hiccups like we did last week. In the middle […]
