November 2017 Menu Plan – A Month of Kid-Friendly Dinners For Only $266

November is one of my favorite months mostly because my favorite holiday is this month – Thanksgiving!  November’s menu plan has everything you need to feed your family dinner for the month for only $266. November’s menu also includes a bonus Thanksgiving menu with a grocery list and recipes.

Feeding your family doesn’t need to be difficult or expensive. I’ve done the planning, you do the shopping. November’s menu is filled with 28 family favorites and includes four (4) new recipes exclusive only on Etsy. The monthly grocery list helps you shop for certain ingredients in bulk, while the weekly menu breakdown helps you shop for the essentials week to week. However you choose to shop, save even more money at the grocery store by shopping your fridge, pantry and freezer first.

November’s menu also includes a Thanksgiving Menu with Mom’s Bistro’s top rated Thanksgiving recipes and a grocery list with everything you need to plan a Foolproof Thanksgiving.

It’s been a crazy couple of months around here lately!  Since August, I have; started a new position at my husbands Chiropractic office, found out that I am pregnant, been featured on a local radio show, Gabby Gourmet and was also a part of a Travel Network special at Steve’s Snappin’ Dogs that will air in the spring!  And now, in November, we have Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving and I am sponsoring an awesome food drive that will support Integrated Family Community Services and Discover Health and Wellness.

With all of these fun things going on, I was really excited to share November’s menu.  It has a few NEW recipes that you can get exclusively with the paid version on Etsy.  With recipes to celebrate food holidays like National Sandwich Day and National Nacho Day, this no-repeat menu plan will never be boring.  Each night has something new for dinner, with leftovers on Wednesdays, and includes a bonus Thanksgiving menu.  November’s menu also includes recipes to use up all of your Thanksgiving leftovers!  If you’re not cooking Thanksgiving dinner, be sure to bring home; turkey, cranberry sauce and stuffing!

To get all of the groceries for November’s menu, I shopped around at a few different grocery stores.  I buy all of my meat, cheese and frozen items at Costco.  For canned/grocery items, I like to shop at Walmart.  They honestly have the best prices for anything on the shelves, and if you want, they have organic options for only pennies more.  The remaining ingredients on my list, I shop my local sales, and get the best deals on everything.

Take advantage of your store cards too – these can offer significant savings.  Kroger sends me FREE coupons now based on items that I buy, and Safeway offers me the items I buy most frequently at greatly reduced prices for being a customer.  And if you’re looking to save an extra few bucks, download the iBotta app.   It offers you money back for items that you’re already buying – pretty neat.  Check it out, and when you download the app, and redeem your first receipt/rebate, you will get a bonus $5 for signing up!  Use referral code: hqsrpvf to get your $5 bonus now!  Last week on the groceries I was already buying, I made $4.25 back in rebates.  There are great rebates for liquor stores and buying beer too!  Check it out!
