Inside: A week’s worth of easy to make dinner that won’t break the bank. Making a few cheap meals each week can help keep your grocery budget low.
With a new year starting, it’s a great time to think about setting goals. If you are trying to save money this year, planning your menu each week can help you save money.
When you have a plan for what’s for dinner each night, you’ll be less likely to eat out. Which in turn can really save you money. If you have a busy day, make a slow cooker dish and it will be waiting when you get home.
When you plan your meals for the week, you’ll have all the items you need to make dinner. Also when you plan ahead you can sneak in cheap meals each week to keep your grocery budget a little lower.
Making breakfast for dinner once a week can help since breakfast usually includes eggs as the protein and they are generally pretty cheap.
