I know I posted about meal planning and how it helps your budget just the other week.
This week is a great example of why. We have had a “crazy not sure when we are coming and going” week. I did not meal plan before the week started. Honestly, it probably would not have fixed everything but it would have helped. Thankfully this is an extra paycheck month so it cushioned the budget a bit. However, it would have been nice to put that money to debt. I don’t mean we blew the whole paycheck. no. We did however eat out and pick up dinner on the run several times.
So, on to menu planning for next week!!
Next week’s menu –
Sunday – Dinner at my parents’
Monday – sweet potato fries, chicken of some sort, and a vegetable
Tuesday – crockpot soup – beef and barley I believe, and 1,2,3 biscuits
Wednesday – chicken, rice, veggie
Thursday – Lentil Shepherds pie (Still haven’t tried it)
Friday- Homemade pasta and sauce plus a veggie
Saturday – homemade pizza?
