Don’t wait until the new year to start saving money on your groceries! December’s menu includes a delicious Christmas dinner, and rings in at $257, leaving more wiggle room in your budget for Christmas gifts.
Over the past two years, I have shared a monthly menu that shares some of my favorite kid-friendly recipes that will save you time and the grocery store and keep your tummy and wallet full. And as the end of the year approaches, this is one of my favorite menus yet!
It is because all of your support, and sharing that makes me keep going, and keeps my menus fresh. The support of awesome readers like you, makes menu planning fun, and it gives me great pleasure, and warms my soul to read all of your comments about how my menus, and the time I spend on them helps you save money and sanity! There are so many times that I have read your comments, and it makes me cry happy tears because you’re so awesome.
Since Anthony started school, things have been crazy around here, especially with the holidays. Last month, I wasn’t able to find the time to create the weekly grocery lists and menus that I have been sharing, but that has changed, and things are back to normal. You can find the menu and grocery lists available in my Etsy Store for $2! The printable on Etsy comes with everything you need for a month of meal planning.
