Menu Planning–2009Nov09

These next few weeks are going to be super, super tight financially for us; so it is incredibly important that I save as much $$ for our family by not going over the food budget! There’s not much I can do to generate income, but I can help the money stretch further by being diligent in how the money does (or doesn’t) get spent! I’m normally pretty miserly about the money anyhow, but I am going to have to put on the Scrooge hat with the coin purse for a couple months!

My goal is to not spend a penny over $50.00 a week in food for our family of 5 for the next 10 weeks. This is my plan for this week:

Breakfasts: Oatmeal, Cereal-WIC, Homemade bagels, Homemade pancakes

Lunches: Sandwiches, Fishsticks, Leftovers

Dinners: Beans and Rice (2), Leftover Lasagna from Bible Study (1), Quiche (1), Pizza (1), Spaghetti (1), Tuna Casserole (1)

Sides: Canned Peaches, Canned Pears, Canned Carrots, Bananas, Yams, Frozen Broccoli, Frozen Corn, Frozen Peas, Canned Green beans

Snacks: Rasins, Popcorn, Graham crackers, Apples, Yogurt
