New Year Meal Plan

We are approaching the new year and if you don’t regularly meal plan, the new year is a great time to start.

Over the years, I’ve found that making a meal plan can really help save money. But not only save money but also keep from wasting food too. By using up what you have on hand.

If one of your goals is to eat at home more or to save money meal planning can help. If you need help getting started check out how to plan a month’s worth of meals in just about an hour.

Now onto this week’s meal plan, just in case you need a few dinner ideas…

This week’s menu plan has some easy to make meals, along with a few freezer cooking meals too. I’m keeping my sides simple too. I’ll be making a big batch of mashed potatoes to use a few nights this week. I’ll also make a big batch of rice to use a few nights too.

I also realized it’s been about a while since we have had pizza for dinner. My family loves pizza, so it’s on the plan for this week too.

  1. I’m very ready to get back to some sort of a routine although my boys don’t go back to school until Wednesday. I can’t even imagine going a month without pizza around here! It’s one of our staples. Your menu sounds great!

  2. Looks like a yummy week ahead! I’m in the beginnings of a pantry challenge right now … not so much of a challenge just yet, thankfully!
