It is that time again!!! Time to make your week go better with a little planning. Menu planning is a time and money saver. I am frequently asked how I spend so little on groceries. I only buy what I know I will be using that month. And yes, I only get groceries once a month. This has decreased my spending even more as I am in the store less often to splurge on treats! And remember, always shop with a list!
Each week I put away $100 of our money to save towards grocery shopping at the end of the month. It works wonderfully and I usually have money left to spare after buying everything on my list.
Last week, I made many meals that I have made before. I had one new thing on the list, but didn’t end up making it! Favorite meals of the week included, Chicken Risotto, Baked Ravioli and Chilli and chilli Dogs. I always make chilli and save enough to have chilli dogs later in the week. YUMMY!!!
We have plenty of leftovers from this week so today I will not be making what in planned and will be have “Old Coyan Buffet” for supper. This is where we make a buffet with all our leftovers. For some reason when I call it “old Coyan Buffet”, everyone is excited about it.
Have a great week!!!! Remember a little planning will go a long way.
