Can you believe it’s already August? This past year has flew by for our family, and before we know it, summer is going to be over and school begins! With all of the back to school purchases in your very near future – if you haven’t started already, I have made August’s menu, easy, delicious and best of all, inexpensive! This month’s meal plan has 31 days of no-repeat dinners for $152.49! Scroll down for recipes, a FREE printable grocery list and a printable menu to put on the fridge so everyone always knows what’s for dinner!
You might be asking yourself, “how the hell did she manage to make this meal plan so cheap?” It’s possible, I promise, and if you shop the sales at your local grocery store I guarantee that you will save even more money. For example, in this meal plan, I priced out ground beef at $2.99 a pound, which is a pretty damn good price, but at my local Safeway, ground beef is $1.99 a pound this week, and that is a $4.00 savings right there for the month.
To plan my meals, I use Walmart Grocery To Go. Walmart’s across the US are pretty similar in price, so I figured, like in the past, I’d use Walmart Grocery again to plan the menu. If you haven’t heard of it before, it is a service offered by different Walmart’s in select locations across the country, and you order your groceries online, and they get delivered right to your door step! It’s quite wonderful actually. Click here, and see if there is a Walmart Grocery in your area – if there is, save $10 on your grocery order and get FREE delivery! I guess that would be like a $142 for the month then! Cha ching! And no, this post is NOT sponsored by Walmart, but I wanted to share a referral link that I have with my readers, so save you even more money!
