Planning meals ahead can help you get organized for the week and help you save money too. When you plan your meals you can use up what you have on hand. You can save trips to the store for unexpected items.

I love knowing what we’ll be eating for the week so I can get items prepped ahead of time on busy days. I can use food I’ve stocked in the freezer.

You can too. This is our meal plan for the week if you need a few inexpensive and quick to make diner ideas.

This week we’ll be eating from the freezer. We’ll have meatballs, teriyaki chicken and pork chops. I love having meat packs ready to go in the freezer.

I make a bunch of meatballs at a time and freeze them in meal sized packages. Then when it’s time to make dinner all I need to do is heat them up and dinner is ready.

We’ll also be making hamburger skillet dish this week. It’s an easy dinner that’s under a dollar a serving. So quick and frugal too. I usually use pre-cooked hamburger from the freezer to make this dish even quicker.

Pizza is a favorite at our house. We make homemade pizza often and with this no rise pizza crust, pizza can be ready faster than it can be delivered.

I also love making quiche for dinner. It’s a great way to take a small amount of leftover meat and vegetables and stretch it into a whole new meal.

Here are all our meal ideas for this week…
