Weekly Menu Planner

Weekly Menu Planner here with your new menus and grocery shopping lists. Sorry to be posting late, but I got buried in tax papers yesterday and barely made it out alive! Actually, we're getting a nice return this year, so I was anxious to file. We need our own family bail out this year. That's why these menus have been so cheap and budget friendly. It's been my mindset this year. Save Money!! Plan better! You know, these online menus and shopping lists actually may help others to save money on their groceries, too!

  1. Another great week of menus and shopping lists...glad you're using one of the recipes I posted on my blog...thanks also for the link too !

  2. I forgot to ask in my previous comment... Do you plan for a family of 9 ? Any teenagers, especially boys...they eat as much as grown men !

    Your Menus and shopping lists would make a great book but I am grateful for the ideas you give us here can get pretty boring cooking the same things all the time...Love the variety...also that you use leftovers and healthy foods !


I would love to have your comments. Please be patient while I moderate each one.
