Weekly Menu No. 13

First, I just want to thank you all for sticking with me through this meal-planning project of mine; all the positive feedback has been fantastic. I have to thank Rick, from the Yak Shak, for helping me stick with the menu. I might write it up, but he does cook the majority of these meals. […]

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 […]

$150 Costco Menu and Weekly Meal Plan No. 11

I recently joined $5 Dollar Meal Plans, and with their free trial, I received the $150 Costco Meal Plan. The plan described that you could make 22 complete dinners for $150. Are you kidding me? That works out to be less than $7 a Meal. I did not think this was possible but decided to give […]

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 […]

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. […]

Budget-Friendly Meal Plan No. 5

Wow, the support that I have received from these weekly meal planning posts has just been so incredible. Just a quick reminder that I post my weekly menu to encourage menu planning and to give meal ideas, not as a nutritional standard. You should feed your family based on your priorities and values. I am […]

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 […]

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 […]
