More Online Grocery Lists From Your Weekly Menu Planner

I'm so glad to be your weekly menu planner, offering free printable online menus and grocery lists. I love doing this for people. It makes me more organized myself. My family has had much better meals since I began this project. So, once again, I present you with the cheapest menus and shopping lists for my picky family on a budget. By the way, if any of you would like recipes for any of the dishes in the menu, I usually use the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, mixed with recipes from family and things I've made up or looked up on the internet, so you can easily find recipes for the things I do, if a recipe is needed. For the chocolate cake, you can use the ones I have posted or your own. I have planned for leftover ham to be used the next day in beans and then in soup.

Day 1-Ham, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Peas, Rolls, Berry Pie

Day 2-Ham and Beans, Cornbread, Green Beans, Berry Pie

Day 3-Split Pea and Ham Soup, Crackers, Peaches, Chocolate Cake

Day 4-Baked Potatoes, Sour Cream, Cheese, Chili, Pears, Chocolate Cake

Day 5-Burritos, Corn, Mexican Rice, Fruit Salad

Day 6-Biscuits and Gravy, Green Beans, Fruit Salad

  1. This is a wonderful service you're providing here. I'm going to give both my daughter and my daughter-in-law a link to your site, because they are both on budgets!


  2. You are awesome ! Where on earth do you find the time with all the other stuff you have to do ?

    I especially like that you have a little something for dessert and of course, the shopping list !

  3. Thank you Sue and Lynn. It's always encouraging to hear when your services are blessing other's lives. Thank you for your comments and keep visiting.

  4. Ok, I want to know about all those delicious sounding desserts! How do you stay trim?

  5. I think about them and talk about them more than I actually make them and eat them. My family helps eat them, so I usually only get a serving or two. If I had the whole cake sitting in front of me, I would probably eat it all in a day or two.

    I'm hoping that I will be able to gain a little weight by keeping desserts around. I've actually gotten too thin for my liking lately.

  6. What a great idea! Most nights I have no idea what we are going to have for dinner until about an hour before we need to eat. I am just glad we finally have a grocery store nearby! I hate always trying to figure out what to eat. This is a great service! Thanks.

  8. Thanks for the comment, Joy For Your Journey. I think you accidentally submitted twice, so I deleted the second one. I'm so glad you like the menus. Please drop by every Friday afternoon for your new list, as I post Friday mornings. If you don't like what I'm having that week, you can browse through old lists and find something you like better.

  9. I love your blog. I like the idea of having meal plans and shopping lists right there and I don't even have to think too much about it. This is something I need some help with to become better organized and save money. Have a a Merry Christmas!

  10. Thanks, Meredith. I hope you enjoy these menus and shopping lists. Don't forget to add in what you have for breakfast, lunch, and snacks, as I haven't added those things in.

  11. so glad you found my blog! I hope to update it pretty regularly. Thanks so much for commenting!
