Frugal Meal Planning: Meal Plan 4

The last few weeks have gone so fast. How are you doing on your budget? Has frugal meal planning helped your budget out? I know it has been helpful for me, especially as this coming week I find I miscalculated and have almost nothing in grocery money. Yup, I spent too much on Black Friday/Christmas shopping.
