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.
No worries though, I have plenty of food in in my fridge and freezer so we won’t go hungry. Besides eating from our stockpile , I’m using last week’s Thanksgiving leftovers recipe menu plan for our dinners but here is a brand new meal plan for all of you.
